As you might have read on my Facebook page, my father’s house burned to the ground on April 7, 2016. He lost everything, and my husband and I lost a great deal of our own belongings which were stored there. It was devastating and we really thought that my father would be homeless and living with us indefinitely.

Someone mentioned that we should do a benefit supper and silent auction to raise funds to build him a new house or at the very least pay for cleanup costs. About a month after the fire we had the benefit and I put up a monogram as an auction item.

Ironically, one of the women who helped me the most during the weeks preceding the benefit, convinced her mother to bid on the monogram. Well, her mother won!

When I met with her to discuss what she wanted she just said that she wanted something green and perhaps with a Lily of the Valley. That way it would match both her kitchen and dining areas, while featuring her favorite flower.

Construction

Making this monogram was relatively simple. I just whipped up several of my easy glueless multi-strip spirals and filled in the body of the “P.” The leaves were made of several traditional quills pressed together. And the flowers were just 1/8″ white tight coils pressed into cups.

I could probably have filled the letter with boucle, but the multi-strip spirals look nice and are a little more “solid” feeling to me. Plus I think it’s easy to get stuck in the rut of filling all the blank spaces in with boucle and can become dull or reduce creativity.

The entire piece measures 8×10 and was finished with a white mat and black shadowbox frame.
