Embroidered Alphabet Sampler, sneak peek


I really love to embroider.  I am not very good at it, but I keep trying. 


Ever since I finished Alicia’s fabulous Daisychain ABCs Sampler, I have been missing it.  I wanted more alphabet samplers.  Needed them! 


Ahhh, that’s better.   Wow, that’s pretty wrinkled.  I hope the iron is up to the task. 


  1. oh my goodness, this is just beautiful! what a lovely thing to do. i'm feeling inspired to try embroidery too. i love your thread spools and your pretty scissors! thank you for sharing!

  2. Looks to me like you've got the embroidery thing down pat. I, on the other hand, could use a lesson or two or three. Your alphabet sampler is beautiful. Look at all those stitches!

    Only you could make a paper butterfly display with fake Latin names look sensational. :)

    Have a great day! Tammy

  3. You are fabulous! So glad I found your blog. As a fellow crafter (and crochet lover) I am inspired by you. Do you sell your crafts? An alphabet sampler would be lovely in my daughter's room :)

  4. i love your blog...
    what brand embroidery thread do you use?

  5. hello! Great blog! I'm also very curious what brand embroidery thread do you use?

    1. Oops, I missed this one--I normally use DMC, but for this project I used something called "Dee-Lite" which I found at a yard sale, and which I think is usually used in punch-needle embroidery. :)
