Stitching: A. Lincoln
All my life I’ve loved handwriting. As a child I practiced mine constantly and have always loved studying penmanship and lettering styles. Combine this with a tremendous regard for Abraham Lincoln and I suppose it’s no surprise that I would love his signature. Some time ago I decided to enlarge it and see how it would look embroidered. I began this months ago but finished it up on the 4th of July and am so happy with the results!
I’ve never stitched something like this before, all in a satin stitch. I love the raised effect of the stitching.
The piece is approximately 10 inches long and 3 inches tall. I think it will become part of a pillow…
