Good morning, stitchers

I have made great progress on Sherwood Garden. In addition to actual stitching I have spent hours with pencil and paper as I worked on lettering and the hearts.

The outline of the hearts you see is the basting line for the Rhodes Hearts I will stitch. It took a lot of time to figure out the right size and exact shape for the hearts.

The lettering is a big challenge. I just can’t seem to find the right font and size for my granddaughter’s and her fiancé names. Both names have seven letters and figuring out the font and size is what has used lots of graph paper. I feel I need to have this down pat before I go back to using some of the Sherwood Garden design areas to complete the middle area.

There are two more border stitches to complete and I will probably stitch them while my brain works on the lettering.

Have a wonderful day.
