Calligraphy - another one of my hobbies.

I sometimes click on the "interests" links of other bloggers, and find ever more like-minded souls, and so it was when I clicked on the subject of Calligraphy. I discovered Medieval Lady and Scribe With Gold - both hosted by Patty. I promised I would put a sample of my efforts at calligraphy, so here it is - a menu for a dinner party we hosted for friends one Christmas. I have taken two short courses in the art of beautiful writing, and I have several pens and other implements, but to do it properly, one needs to practice regularly and I never seem to have the time to do it. The story of my life...so much to do and so little time to do it!

Gina,
You're so sweet to mention my boring blogs. It appears you have a natural talent for calligraphy. I'm still working on learning new hands. I understand 'so much to do, so little time to do it.' as you've woken up the cross stitch bug in me. ;-) I'm also learning how to make a quilt and crochet/knit. Not too mention have to work on keeping up the yard. Oh and we just had the lillies start to bloom. I'll post a picture later. Gee, I think you get what I mean. ;-) Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
-Patty

I, too, am a calligraphy lover. I have the Calligraphy Bible with tons of typeface in it. It is crazy.
