Monogram makeover (limited edition)
















   Sometimes we have to try, even if we don't know how to. This was the Wedding invitation, and my task was to make a Wedding ring cushion. In cross-stitch! With the same letters...  The search didn't bring out any Edwardian style monogram, so my head started to explode - what should I do? Then I took a photo of the wanted letters. After very long staring it came to my mind to lay them down to the squared sheet. 



But there was a problem - the lines were too thin and were not fitting exactly the squares. After some adjusting on the computer it turned out like that: 



Maybe it was not the same delicate lines exactly, but with the help of a pencil and a little bit of patience at last was possible to make the cross-stitch.

   

                                  After all, like in each love story, there was a happy end. :)
