Monogram fun

I just love stitching these French monogram letters. They are just instant beauty and who doesn't love a gift with their own letters on it?


These are a birthday gift for a friend of mine. She loved the ones I made for our bedroom at Cranberry Cottage. I have been wanting to make her a set.


I stitched the letters S and T for her and her husband's first name and L for their last name.


The frames where ones I found a couple of years ago in IKEA. I fell in love with them right away. I often see a frame and immediately get an idea of how to use it. The funny thing is the this same friend has seen these frames and is always telling me that she wants to buy them from me. How can she when I meant to use them for her own gifts. *grins*

She does not do any kind of crafts herself but loves things like this and I cannot wait until I see her next week to give them to her.
