There is a great choir festival going on in Vaasa at the moment and last night I went to hear The Real Group, a Swedish a cappella group. I particularly liked the song 'Words' including the line 'words, a letter and a letter on a string'.
Here are some 'words' created by stringing a letter and a letter on a thread. If it's hard to see, the letters read OANAMI. This will be on the back of the wedding gift walling hanging I've been working on this week: her name is Oana, his nickname is Nami (can't take credit for combining their names like this, though).
I did something similar on another small wedding gift last fall.
Thanks again to Tonya for the letter tutorial!
