a woman of letters

last week i gave a preview of a work in progress; and now, it's complete.

here is the set of letters -- the alphabet -- that i've created for the children's shop in san francisco (i havent yet checked with them to see if it's okay for me to link to them... i'll do that and get back to this....)

there are a couple of extras, yes. i'm gonna let them decide which of the duplicates they like best.

here's the set i started with:

and here's a little fun i had while i had such a large set of letters to work with:

i had been wanting to do this for a loooooooooong long time -- since a friend suggested it months ago -- but i never had all of the letters. sometimes, i'd be real close to having them all, only to find that i needed more o's, or another t, or another e. and i just didnt have the patience to make it all happen. but this time, i was so close that i just HAD to make it happen.
and i'm glad i did.
(i just wish my photo shoot went better!)
someday, i'd really love to have a set of this hanging on a wall in my own house.

and here's a little love for y'all:

(xoxoxoxoxo to you from me!)

I seriously have no idea how you cross stitch so fast. I am embarrassingly slow.

beautiful, as always!
