Another small finish for me this month is "Yeow!" by Pamela Byrd Smith of The Prairie Schooler, which I stitched for the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL (link in sidebar).
This month's discussion topic is:
Pick one of the WIP pieces you’ve stitched on this month, and tell us about your stitching journey with the piece.
Well ... The projects I have posted today are all new for this year. But I do have a little bit of a journey with Multi-Coloured Alphabet ...
Many, many years ago we had shops in our city called "bookstores". They sold books, books, more books, and magazines. (Sadly, these shops no longer exist today.) I so enjoyed spending hours browsing the endless rows of books and digging through the bargain sections for hidden treasures. It was on one of those treasure hunts that I found a little old cross stitch book called "The Book of Cross Stitch - Traditional and Contemporary Designs for Holidays and Special Occasions" by Gail Lawther. It had some cute alphabets and holiday designs, so I picked it up at an 82% discount and brought it on home with me. Flash forward 20 years, and I decide to finally stitch the Multi-Coloured Alphabet that I so often admired. I started it during Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge 2015 (DUCJC2015) and I certainly hope it doesn't take me another 20 years to finish it. (hee-hee!) But seriously ... I really do love that pattern & the happy colors I am using to stitch it.
