I always marvel at your beautifully stitched letters/words. I love the rise and fall of the letters.

Liz Ackert said...

Oh thank you for this ... for years I relied on counted stitches to make perfectly formed letters. These days I embrace the variations in size and shape, each letter unique and ever so much more fun.

Good luck! I hope someday you'll share your journey in blog form.

Thanks Grace ... I can't help looking at it when we are at the table eating. And it just hit me (belatedly) that the cloth is as long as I am tall. Considering that it's a literal representation of rainfall, that gives new meaning to "under water."
