Continuing on with this daisy & rings monogram alphabet for hand embroidery, here are the S and the T.
It’s perfectly understandable if you look at these two letters and say, Huh?
The S is an old scripted S, as is the T – although the T is somewhat reminiscent of an uncial-type T. Both of these styles are often seen in old alphabets for embroidery.
At first, for modern audiences, they can be somewhat difficult to get used to.
Just preparing you!
Here’s the S:
I know! You’re probably thinking it looks like an L that stopped short on the finish. It does. I agree. But assure you, it is an S!
And here is the T:
The T is slightly more common, I think, though still not what we’d normally associate with a T today, whether printed or scripted.
Personally, I like this style. I prefer it to a printed T or to the typical Palmer or Zaner-Bloser penmanship T. But that’s just me.
In fact, I embroidered a T on this needlebook, using a similar monogram (only with roses, not daisies, and no rings.) It’s a classic T for a monogram.
