Look what I found

 

These little alphabet stitcheries were tucked away in a drawer in my sewing room.

Now they are out of the drawer and up on my design wall and I have been playing with fabric and ideas on how to set them.

Then I got on my computer program and came up with this.

I started stitching these years ago…way before I even had a blog. The cute stitcheries are from Lynda Howell at The Stitch Connection and are supposed to be in redwork and make a beautiful quilt… but I wanted colorful and a little bit different.

I had just 7 letters to go when, for some reason, I set them aside.  This time around I ought to be able to buckle down and finish them.

What a fabulous 'find', Annette. They are adorable and your setting is perfect.

You'll have this cutie finished in no time.

I have a good friend who was always working up quilt blocks like this. She would put them in to quilts and give them to her children. I think she put 72 blocks in each quilt!! Yep! She made BIG quilts! I think I am going to call her to see what she ever did with all of those stitcheries she still had on hand the last time I visited with her.

Way cool! The stitcheries are sweet, and I really, really love the setting you've worked up. This is going to be fabulous. A definite keeper.
