NOTE: Thank you, Dot, for sending me the website where these magazines can be purchased. It’s here. The cost is extremely reasonable and it’s so nice to have them all as a PDF so I can sit and go through the files when I’m too tired to stitch. Ever time I go through them, something catches my eye that didn’t jump out at me before.
This took four days and considering how little time I’ve had to stitch, surely it could have been stitched in 2 or 3 days if I had a normal amount of stitching time.
This is Fanciful Alphabet by Monique Keylon of My Mark Designs. This is an old chart from The Gift of Cross Stitching magazine. There is a website listed on the chart but the website seems to no longer exist.
I think it needs something in the bottom right corner. In the left bottom corner, I will probably stitch my initials and 2023. I’ll come up with something to stitch. I think it’s the perfect spot for a little brown and white dachshund but that doesn’t really go there.
I am really a bad cross stitcher! The linen I’m using to stitch Rejoice Evermore by Brenda Gervais has a good bit of space at the bottom so I rolled that piece up on the frame and stitched the alphabet at the bottom right (which is really the top left because I stitched it upside down on the linen). How’s that for confusing?
There’s still room to stitch something small in that other corner of the linen and there’s a good bit of space between Rejoice Evermore and the alphabet piece so I’ll fill up as much of this piece of linen as I can before I take it out of the frame.
I hope I get all these projects finished before my time on Earth is up. It actually would be funny to watch someone else try to figure out what I was doing with all these different stitched pieces on one piece of linen.
