The ABCs of flowers.....

Tomorrow is the start of our new part of the SAL sampler aux bouquets so time to share the finished section with you once again. Look at one of the reasons why I could not resist stitching this design.....

My favorite things on any design are alphabets and houses. This was a fun alphabet to stitch. Now I have put it aside for a few days when I finished it to work on some other projects. I like the assignments as they give you time to do other things too and yet feel as though you will have this done before you know it. The best of both worlds.

Well, that saying suits you to a T. I love this stitch, it is so cute. Your favorite is alphabet, mine is people. Guess that's why they do all kinds of designs.
Happy stitching or whatever you do today.
Love you, Mom

It's a beautiful alphabet Heidi. It's fluid and very elegant and i love the Chinese looking duck at the bottom. The whole design is very pleasing to the eye :>)
