Default My wedding gift

to Darrell and Stephanie....

28 years ago I was the Best Man at my buddies wedding, they told me at the reception that they were going to name their first born son after me.
three years later they had their first child and it was a boy and he was born on my birthday (what's the chances of that).....

well, Darrell's 24 now, he graduated for the university of Colorado last year, has a good job and now he's getting married.

I've only seen him twice but his mom has sent me pictures every year...
Mrs.Trout and I are fling to Colorado for the wedding and I hear their very excited that we are coming so that's why this had to be a very special gift..

the pattern is from Sue Mey..
the rose heart is cut out of 1/8 birch plywood..
Black walnut frame..
Paduak roses with poplar leaves..
black felt backer board..
and cover with glass to protect the cutting and to keep the dust out...

Really lovely, Trout. The roses on the frame set everything off beautifully. I'm sure the couple will be absolutely thrilled.
