In need of a personalized pattern

Hi there, I am looking for someone experiences that can make me a pattern for a project I'm working on. I have a picture for an example but I'm looking for a collage of names put together. The idea: my grandmothers name in the middle surrounded by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I'd like my grandmothers name to be the largest and go to a smaller font for each relationship ie. Her name at a 16 pt font, children at a 14 pt font etc. Please, if anyone is interested in working with me on this to discuss my project further please email. Of course I'd pay for the pattern.

    I don't have a program to work on, but I do have a suggestion.

    I stitch names and words often, I usually do a google search for fonts that I like and use graph paper to play around with the size based on my aida size.

    I've also used the Word Art function on Word, where I figure out what pattern I like and then copy the screen and paste it in to Paint, adjust the size using attributes for the inches size and change it to pixels, put on grid function and start stitching.

    I like to type in things like "Nana signs" or "Daddy signs" and you get a page of cute plaques, signs, pictures, mugs etc and pick design points from the results to design my own. I know because my family is big, I would put Grandma in the center with a small heart above and below it and have a circular border of names. It would look nice in a hoop. Go to top
