We are not used to this heat as we have had the worst summer ever...cool and wet. Today is the type of weather we should get in August. Go figure. It's almost September and now we're getting summer? Better late than never I guess. But as I type this the sun has disappeared and clouds are moving in....again:(
I'm speeding along with my CQ class with Kathy Shaw and am almost caught up with the assigned tasks so far.. I have just done my very first monogram. At one time it was very common to monogram various personal items but I guess the fashion gradually died out. For CQ work though, monograms are perfect for filling up an empty space.
I found some free alphabets on Mary Corbet's site and used a simple script for what I planned to do. Nothing complicated as my embroidery skills don't go there.
Yes I know I said back when that I was going to do TAST on Pintangle but I got side tracked. I am definitely going to do it so I can use more that four stitches....or is that five?
I decided to do my monogram on my "Grape" block....I'm calling it that for obvious reasons:)
I'm joining up today with The Needle & Thread Network where my fellow Canadians show their current projects. I haven't done so in ages so I thought I'd go over and see what's up....see you there:)
