Though it is near the end of the alphabet, the letter W is the beginning of many inspiring and thought-provoking words, such as wisdom, wonder, whimsy, and war. This piece highlights some of those words. I envision the W itself as an elaborately decorated letter, but my stitching falls short of the detail of ancient illustrators. The W is appliquéd in place. Twin-needle stitching creates the lines on which the words are embroidered. Embellishments include beading, threadwork and foiling.
