SDW Week 16 and a mystery......

Week 16 of SDW.  I can't believe how far we have all got, and I am so pleased to be doing this as a SAL.  The motivation from the girls is so inspirational.

I have finished the alphabet letters, as as I said last week, was changing the colours to make the whole, in my  opinion, more balanced.  Well the D and H just had to go as they were do pale, they might as well have not been there anyway.

I also wanted to incorporate more red, but without it detracting from the chapel.  I think I have done that.

The mystery is, just what does JOJJJZ mean.  At first we thought it might be some more initials  but this alphabet doesn't have a letter J, and what does look like a letter J is actually a number one.  Krista came up with what I think is the solution, and it is in fact, 10,11, 12.  Any other ideas are gratefully received, and Marsha if you have a idea, then we would love to hear it!

Sorry about the creases.

I always like more red in a sampler.

I think Krista is correct, they are numbers.

They are indeed numbers, very stylized.
