A Letter a Week 47 & 48

I am way out of whack with my letters; somehow I have lost a week or two and am still catching up. Perhaps that is indicative of how this time of year feels for everybody.  I know a lot of folk are just focused on the next thing - they can't plan too far ahead they just have to get thru this week, these few days; this weekend; this party; this final event etc.

Remember to breathe will be my motto for a bit.

So here are 'u' and 'v', quite nice little letters. They are embroidered onto rusted braille paper as ever, with slight mark making and embellishment in the background.

For 'u' I chose to cut and fold little triangles - I love this shape cut like this.


For 'v' I did running stitches in two off-set square/rectangle shapes.


Over at A Letter a Week 2010 some folk have finished their second alphabets and they are gorgeous to look at.  I will soon be posting about next year's adventure if folk want to join in...
