Embroidered Heirloom Style Monogram
The pattern for this embroidered monogram came from a very, very old magazine. It's rather intricate and took quite a lot of sustained concentration.
I've done others as wedding presents - with the two monograms of the couple inter-twined in the centre (quite a design task in itself) and these were very well received. You can't tell from the photograph, but this one was embellished, very very subtly, with a gold glitter spray.
I can't help thinking, in retrospect, that it would look really nice done in redwork - perhaps as the centre of a cushion. As always...limited only by the imagination!
