Alphabet 2 begins...

After a few false starts, I have worked out what I am doing for the second alphabet.

I have chosen to create an exemplar/sample book of my personal heartbeat script.  I have also found myself in a happy place of recent times stitching into paper, so am stitching the letters; sometimes filling them in, sometimes simply outlining them

I am also working on rusted braille paper - I love the texture and the variations.  Each week I am also adding a design element of sorts to the background to help make each letter unique.  This alphabet feels like me!

Le fond est très beau, belle idée que ce papier.
Bravo pour la couture...
Pourquoi est-ce plus facile de coudre "pour les arts ou les loisirs" que pour le nécessaire quotidien" ? ;)

Bravo for sewing ...
Why is it easier to stitch "for the arts or entertainment" for the necessary daily "? ;)

Callie - Yes! so much easier to stitch for art than to mend clothes or make napkins!
