It was quite difficult to make the letters conform to a plan and still be free formed (if that makes sense). usually, when I make letters, so long as they look pretty much like the letter they're supposed to be, I use them. This time, I wanted them to be a certain shape, and this involved quite a bi of unpicking! It was particularly difficult to get the two gs to look the same, without using any templates etc. The e was also quite tricky.
The word is now safely on its way to Tonya. Hope she can use it in her quilt.
