Monogram for Hand Embroidery: Celtic U – Almost FINISHED!


Amazon Books

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:

  2. hi, My name is Stacey (angelw502) I started reading a project using GST thread I just ordered a dragonfly scissor case & fob. The thread kit was 68.00, for silk floss & GST. I found a sight with 14 colors including black, just imagine spakilies all over a very awesome pic i.e. family tree in times to remember, oops OCD distracted me. Again 14 colors GST 29.00 Austalia, and approx.14.50 US site is Crewel Gobelin Needlework, http://www.crewelgobelin.com I hope this helpful even if late to the table. I enjoyed reading/watching projects step by step. thanx stacey e-mail realwingsangel2@yahoo.com

  4. Hey Mary I just wanted to let you know that I really like this Celtic Monogram set and will soon give it a try. Thanks for sharing with us.

  5. Gee I hope your blissful giddiness heals soon,grin, I am waiting for the last four letters to finish a quilt for my granddaughter. Barb

  6. Hi, Barb –

    Sorry! I haven’t had the opportunity to sit down and clean those up yet, and I’m afraid I haven’t rushed them since there was no feedback! They are now on my list of things to do this week, and I will try my best to get at least one done before tonight. Thanks for the motivation!

    An alphabet quilt is a Brilliant Idea, by the way!



  7. Mary, thanks for your quick response, and for realizing I was joking about your blissful giddiness, grin.

    I have been following all your alphabets (even the one I had to go to another site to get) and I love doing quilts from them, but I also use them for fronts of purses and shopping bags I make for me and family, I love your site. Barb
