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.
