ABC-ing Along



So you're probably wondering what have I been working on since I went silent?  The last time I posted any stitchy related stuff prior to my silence I was working on Kathy's ABC Christmas Sampler, I was working stitching away on K for "King.  As you can see from the picture above, I've gotten King finished and more.

I finished "L", Lights and "R" Reindeer

Also "M" Mistletoe (N has been left blank O-Q have been stitched by others)

I've let my rotation drop for now as I'm getting the urge to finish up this piece.  I do have one new start to share with you, but that will wait for another post!


Speaking of Kathy, I'm off to visit with her this weekend and I can't wait!  When Bonnie came down for the weekend recently she also brought with her a belated birthday gift from Kathy (see what I mean about my birthday keeps giving?).  When she heard that this book was coming out, she just HAD to make sure I get a copy.  She knows I'm a huge fan of Michael Powell's designs!  I just love this little book and its got a lot of great little quick stitches in it!
