Nighthawk

Nothing relieves my stress like sewing. It's been "one of those weeks" at work, and there were a million other things going on, so I really needed to spend some time working in the sewing studio.

Here is the nine-letter word, NIGHTHAWK. The letters haven't been sewn together yet. This is quite a big word, bigger than the other colors.
I had been stuck on what "style" letters to do with this word (and the white and brown), but my friend Julie set me straight. She told me to quit stressing, and said "mix it up" and "utilize the power of your fabrics."
She was right. (you can click the pictures to enlarge)
I am particularly proud of the "K."

There is nothing like sewing for keeping your mind from thinking about things you'd rather not! I saw thins lovely stamp on a parcel 'Stay calm and sew stuff'. How true that is! Ks and Ns are very tricky. Yours is fantastic!

The 'K' is my favorite, too. It is very powerful, I love dragons!
