This all started when Lynne sent me photos of a secret swap project she was working on for Helen of Patchy Work of Mini Grey. (fun blog - well worth a look)
This is Helen's Obey the Rules. And check out this post in which Lynne describes drawing the letters on graph paper and then playing to get just the look that she wanted.
