On Feb 1st I worked on Nature's Alphabet by Sandy Orton.  I added the letter "f" and worked on the flower and upper right corner of the border.

previous progress:
On Feb 2nd, I worked a bit on "Afternoon Nap".  I filled in a few spots and did a bit of backstitching.
 Here is my previous progress:
And now I am all caught up! Happy Stitching!

For those who are interested in the Multi-Coloured Alphabet Pattern:

The "Multi-Coloured Alphabet" pattern was found in a book titled "The
Book of Cross Stitch - Traditional and Contemporary Designs for
Holidays and Special Occasions" by Gail Lawther - ISBN 0-8230-0517-8

I believe the book is out of print, but is available used at Amazon
(actual cover not shown):
The Book of Cross-Stitch: Traditional and Contemporary Designs for Holidays and Special Occasions

*The pattern is a bit unusual - it is a basic grid with dots to mark
stitch placement.  There are no bold grid lines to separate blocks of
10 stitches, nor any color key.  If you have a bit of patience, you
can work it out.  I really like the pattern, so I am giving it a go
and using variegated colors to fill each section.



  1. beautiful projects :-)

  2. Such wonderful projects. I love that multicolored alphabet!

  3. I love all of your projects Cheryl. I really like the Multi-colored Alphabet.


  4. Wow, a lot of WIPs to fill two months! They're all beautiful and it will be wonderful to watch them grow.

  5. I'm a big fan of gazette94 patterns too but had not seen the Cottage freebie yet. . . as a calligrapher I would love to stitch the multi-colored alphabet. . can you share what book, leaflet of magazine this is from? Thanks!

  6. Autumn heart is beautiful, not seen that one before.

  7. Thanks so much for the nice comments. I will add info for the Multi-Coloured Alphabet pattern to the post above.

  8. Thank you for the info on the alphabet pattern and will try to find a copy of the Lawther book. Look forward to watching your progress on these projects. . .

  9. Another fan of the alphabet here! Such a clever idea.
    It's also a clever idea to continue the challenge with the same projects and make a little more progress on each one.

  10. Two more places for the book -
