Alphabet stitcheries....

In 2014 I released a set of 26 alphabet designs and complimented them with two tutorials...


I actually get a lot of emails and messages about alphabet patterns because they are very popular as embellishments for hand-stitched gifts, so today I thought I'd share photos of some gifts I've made from the Rosedaisy Alphabet for family and friends. 
All of these, apart from the J, were framed...








A tutorial for preparing a stitchery to include blanket stitch applique is here.

A tutorial for colouring a stitchery before adding embroidery is here.




If you'd like this 26 pattern set (every letter of the alphabet is a different design!) I have it on sale until September 5th:

in my Craftsy Shop here 
or my Etsy Shop here,

Each letter when stitched will fit inside a 5 inch square. 

Stuck for a gift idea for birthdays, Christmas, weddings or a christening? These are perfect. 

I'm about to stitch an A and a C for my granddaughters Cully and Aminah. I'll be sure to show you when they're done!

Hope you have an ABC kind of weekend!

a...absolutely fun
b...blessed
c...calm and relaxing

hugs

They are such beautiful and handy stitcheries to purchase and keep. I used my 'H' this time last year as part of a quilt label on a baby quilt.
