SAL 33: alphabet top row

It’s that time again…. where did all the days go?

I managed to get a fair bit of stitchery done in the evenings, so it’s not a total wipeout. Here’s where I’d got to last time:

Blue borders, first letters

I’m really pleased with the letters, they’re just decorative enough but not so twiddly that you can’t read them. Here’s the progress:

Top row of alphabet

Time to go and check out all the others’ work. Don’t forget about the difference in time zones; if you’re seeing me first, you may need to drop in to theirs a bit later to give them a chance to get their posts up. Not everyone posts every time, but there’ll still be something worth seeing there.

    Love the lettering. I always found counted thread work very relaxing, the finer count the better… but alas these days the eyes object, so I will enjoy the fruit of your labour.

      This is 16 count, and about as small as my eyes will take – I’m very long sighted. I’m really enjoying this piece, and as I’m making fairly good progress, I shall have to start thinking about what to do with it…

    That is a lovely alphabet. I like ornate lettering but it’s obviously better if you can still read it 🙂

    It’s looking good Kate! I admire your perseverance; I wouldn’t find this fun at all. But that’s the beauty of needlework isn’t it? There’s something for everyone!

      I just love seeing things grow out of little stitches, and I find the counting soothes and calms me without making me unable to do something else at the same time.

  12. Gorgeous letters which are perfect for this design. I’m still loving the blues.
