Sometimes...

I just have to try something to see if it will turn out like I imagine!
So instead of working some more on the slow project or any one of the other half started projects that are cluttering up the crafting space I decided to try this.

And it worked.
Picture from an illustrated alphabet enlarged a lot, traced and stitched onto crisp white cotton, crocheted ric rac in same shade as stitching and all sewed up - great quick project.
I can see other letters popping up in time for Christmas.
Happy Monday where ever you are
