My bestie ChameleonHound and I always joke about how similar we are, and we get called by each other's name more often that you would think. Our initials are just one letter off, REK and ROK. I designed this monogram to combine them for the February stitchalong's theme of 'Best Friends.' Incidentally, our handwriting is also very similar.



The design was fairly simple, but took a while to finish! Satin stitch on the lettering and then french knots all around.



Also the fabric is some that she gave me. <3

Beware the Platypirates and their tri-corner hats.

This is most excellent!

Love the satin stitched letters. Did you stitch an outline first? Your edges are so neat and tidy!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
