An embroidered alphabet: letter H

Embroidered letter H (hand embroidered by Mary Addison)

A brief post with little more than photographs of this week’s letter. I had intended to get this out before we spent a few days in Ipsden but – like so many plans made with optimism, it didn’t happen.

Our Ipsden visit, for the saddest occasion of the funeral of a much loved friend, in fact turned out to be gloriously wonderful. But more of that in my next post when I’ll show the altar fontal’s first fitting.

      Always good to hear what you think, Rachel. Thank you.

    This might be my favourite letter so far, the blue sings, and the red highlights are a wonderful accent x

      I’m rather fond of it too, Penny and agree the colours work happily together.

    Well, your gold G monogram danced, this letter H sings. What a wonderful choice of colour.

    Looking forward a viewing the Ipsden altar frontal.

      Thank you, Anne. What nice descriptions.
      Alar frontal will take a bit longer – I can’t wait either.
