Hi there,

Well, a couple of weeks ago, I was asked to do a Star of the Desert – Gules (Estrella War service award, 1st level of 3). I decided to do it all in calligraphy. There’s not a stitch of paint on it anywhere!

I used ink on watercolor paper and the hand is a Secretary, which I wove some of the letters with tall ascenders and descenders (the parts that stick up or down on the letters) together.

Hopefully, it will go out later this month.
