Daily art -- progress report 2

One day I was stitching on a little picture and when I finished, it looked kind of small and wimpy.  So without really thinking twice, I stitched a label.

I liked the way it looked, so a couple of days later I did another.

Long-time readers of this blog know that I'm a terrible snob about type and lettering, so maybe you wonder how I could do these rickety letters in good conscience.  I guess it's for the same reason that I like my crude drawings:  the medium of thread gives me permission to be casual.  And I'm quite enjoying the ambience of the rickety alphabet.
