CJC Day 17 - Alphabet Letters

I found these neat burlap squares at Walmart and the first thing I thought of was stitching my daughter's name on them. I think they're maybe similar to 10 count and I ended up using 3 threads for coverage. 

I'm stitching the teddy bear alphabet from the Ultimate Cross Stitch Alphabet book. I purchased this book at Michael's while I was in my first year of undergrad I think. My roommate taught me how to cross stitch and I think I purchased this shortly after my first finish. It's been sitting sadly neglected for over a decade at least, but it's stayed with me through every move until I finally need it again now. 

I finished the first of 6 squares tonight and hope to get the other 5 done soon.

I'm using WDW Angel Hair for the light brown and Bright Leaf for the medium brown. I'm backstitching with DMC 3371. The red is from a Dinky Dyes oops pack, so I don't know the shade. 

This will be another project I hope to finish well before the end of the year. The first one took a couple hours, so hopefully the rest are just as easy. 

Happy Stitching,



Thanks for any comments!

People's Choice SAL - Most Stitched Designer

This week it's time to choose the designer we stitch the most. I think it's easy for some, but I tend to hop around and stitch on...
