Mail Call


This is some of what came in yesterday's mail. I am doing a stitchalong of the CHS Alphabet charts with a friend in the Yukon Territories. We are each going to buy half of the charts and then send them to the other to stitch. I started at the beginning of the alphabet and Vivian is starting at the end. These are the charts for B, C, D and E. I've been stitching tonight on A and I've gotten part of the frame around the design done and part of the outline of the first box. I'm stitching over one on 30ct so the progress is a bit slow but I so enjoy over one stitching. I'm using the WDW called for. If I don't like how it looks after the first letter, I will make that portion into an pillow hanger and then choose another fabric for stitching them all on one piece. I also got the next Essy's Friends Kit which is really cute. I put it upstairs without opening it so I wouldn't be tempted. I need to do the finishing for my sweetbag before I start it. They are also doing another sampler house exchange over at Legacy and I plan to sign up for that so I need to get a few things finished quickly so I don't get to bogged down.

You are so brave to do all those alphabet letters over one. I bow down to your perseverance. I am in awe of your over one finishes and I too like your blog, and read it daily!

I also put the next Essy's kit away until I finish the first. And also signed up for the sampler house exchange. This is my first exchange, I'm excited about doing it. I hope I can find a "good" house to stitch!

What a great idea sharing the cost of the alphabets - I might try that. Oh, and I'm signed up for the sampler house exchange too!!

Thanks for the picture I'd been trying to find out what C is for, for a little while. I found all the rest of the alphabet - isn't that always the way!

thanks for sharing. Knowing you are stitching & swapping will keep your needle moving along. the alphabets are charming.

It sounds as though you are another CHS fan! I love her designs! I am also working on Dainty Housewren and the Houses of Hawk Run Hollow. I would love to start somethng else, but I have to finish Dainty Housewren first! are you stitching the alphabet on one piece of fabric? I have some letters. I will just stitch them as individual little ornaments. I wish I enjoyed over one stitching more--I love how it looks!
