    Love your work! What is the background fabric you have these pieces on? What do you use for your letters? I need to find something like this for some projects I have lined up. Thank you for your time.

      The red is a Moda solid….not sure of the exact color designation. I’ve found that the quality of that line has been maintained & the hand/finish is fine/smooth & “rich”. I free-hand sketch the letters (usually). I have a “Monogram” Pinterest board that I visit and kinda combine ideas. I often do a sketchbook drawing first but, for this one, I just “went for it” on the linen with an air-erase marker. I do hope that helps you a bit, if not…..please….let me know!!! Thanks so much for your sweet words…..hugs……..

        Thank you for your reply. Impressive to do the letters by “went for it”. LOL Thanks for sharing your work with us. I look forward to every post.

          It is a totally addicting process (for me) and allows me to micro-stipple to my heart’s content!! I do hope it inspires others to give it a try. It is so achievable on a DSM!!!! Thnx, again, for popping by!!! Hugs…….

    On the photographs the pieces look like embossed paper. Not an easy ‘look’ to achieve on a sewing machine. That was meant as a compliment by the way. 😉
