Welcome to the first Monday, and the first letter, in my
Every Monday for the next 26 weeks I will be sharing a letter from my newest Shabby Roses Alphabet.
Originally I had decided the share the letters I used in last year's Shabby Roses Alphabet Runner (featured in Issue 11 of Elefantz HOME e-zine), but you know me...I have to play around with things to improve them, so I spent most of last night, and a few hours this morning re-drawing a prettier version for you...
I also decided to present the monograms in a simple sampler for framing when it's finished, so your first week also has the full header in case you'd like to stitch the sampler with me.
Normally I stitch on white handkerchief linen, but I thought a spotty background would be nice for a change.
The main threads in my sampler are Cottage Garden 'Vintage Rose' and 'Oregano', with Anchor Grey 399 for the wording in the header and the outline of the letters.
So today, let us begin with...
You can download A, with the header, HERE.
Feel free to share the news about Monogram Mondays, just be sure to link back to Elefantz, ok? :-)
Will you use the monograms on anything special, or are you going to stitch the sampler?
