A New Hobby

Many of you know that my handwriting … well …leaves something to be desired.  I’ve been accused of writing with my feet.

Since retiring, I’ve been able to spend the time learning how to improve my everyday handwriting, and have been practicing, practicing and practicing.  I’ve discovered a renewed love of the written word, and have been taking online calligraphy lessons.

My birthday is the end of March, but Jim gave me my present early.  It’s the most beautiful Montegrappo “Game of Thrones-themed” fountain pen.  I picked out the color I wanted, and it is the “House of Stark” with wolf’s heads engraved on the clip, the band and the nib.

Once I have a calligraphy piece completed, I’ll post it here.
