Crafting Mojo

After being sick for some time now, I'm trying to get my crafty mojo back. I've been doing some embroidery, I adore monograms, but after seeing Hanna's free form needle art, I'm inspired to give it a try.

My monogram. Just find a font you like and print it out. Then using transfer paper, trace the letter onto your piece of fabric.
Primrose Design has a great online stitch school that I've found to be very helpful.

(Monogram Momma has a great tutorial on making a monogramed tie for Fathers Day.)

The monogram looks really nice and even though I'm flattered that you like my photos, I'd preferred if you linked to my post about this and not put up my photos on your blog! Thanks! :-)
