Good morning Cuties, it seems that even the weather is mourning Tata Madiba today. Unseasonal rain is forecast for the memorial service today.

Does any clever Cutie know where a photostitch design of Mandela is available? I have had numerous requests from friends.
Many thanks
Stella

A photostitch would be a lovely way to memorialize a truly great leader.

My thoughts are with your country as the world mourns the passing of a great man.

Thank you. There is great praise in South Africa for the speech by the US President, Mr Barack Obama, at today's memorial service for the late Nelson Mandela.

In addition to 'sadp's' link to a Nelson Mandela design (see below) , here is another: YoThreadWorks . Yet another is also available on another link but the resemblance, to me, is not good.

There is a photostitch of Mandela at embroideryMIX. Go to People Legends, then Legendary people and it is there but the name has been misspelled slightly. It is not a freebie @ $5.99, hugs S*

Thank you for the excellent lead. I have previously embroidered photostitch designs from embroideryMIX.

Good morning Stella - I was also wondering if any of the embroidery sites will bring out designa for Tata. It is raining here in Knysna as well so even the weather is in mourning. Sarah
