I don’t normally do this sort of thing but the timing was perfect; I had wanted to experiment a bit with painted letters. I didn’t go very far out of my comfort zone with the lettering here, but I’m happy with how it turned out.
Writing this out got me thinking that I tend to have crutches. I’m pretty sure we all do. Sometimes it’s a ruffle, sometimes it’s leather, sometimes it’s lettering. I’ll be hanging this up in my sewing studio to remind myself to get beyond my normal crutches and really try something new. I hope you do, too.
