I can hardly restrain my blissful giddiness over the fact that I’m almost finished with the Celtic monograms for hand embroidery! After this one, I think only four more to go! You’re probably just as glad as I am, because these monograms are getting kinda… well… old. But then, after all, they are old.
Here’s the long and really short of it on the Celtic monograms: for stitch suggestions, check the Celtic A!
Here’s the small version of the Celtic U:
And here’s the large version:
Now, today, if all goes well, I will at least manage two things: setting up a simple embroidery project (for a grab-and-go project), and stitching a bit on my whitework sampler! Keep your fingers crossed for me, that I get something accomplished, because otherwise, I just may go nuts!
But, before I can launch into that, I have to frost my own birthday cake to take to my sister’s for a birthday party this evening. It’s somewhat strange, to make one’s own cake, but hey – it’s just dessert! I’m thinking about doing something really bizarre so that my sister officially proclaims that I shall never make the dessert again! Something like… oh, Pink Mountain Icing on a chocolate cake. That’ll gross her out (but the kids’ll love it!).
And, by the way, it’s not my birthday (yet) – that’s Wednesday, the 8th, which will be the perfect day for a give-away! So stay tuned for that on Wednesday. You can help me celebrate!
Have a terrific Sunday!
