I'm definitely going to make more time for mine, Vonna. I love it when I take it out, but I can only do the over one so long. Plus, I've been kinda busy, lol!

Vonna, I keep thinking about my poor Prairie Schooler ABC too. Maybe I should join your challenge. I'll have to see about my commitments though. See how I waffle? lol! Well, how about I promise to pull the piece out by the end of the year? lol!

OK Vonna ~ sounds good ~ I will pull mine out as well! We just need to attack this thing in small bits ~ one letter at a time (-:

I have been plugging away at this... and I do mean plugging. I love this project, but need just the right light and not to be exhausted! I am on D is for Drum right now and hope to finish E as well by the end of the year... anything else is a bonus.

I'm so ashamed...I haven't finished a single one...but I'm over-booked for the rest of the year, so I'll have to keep it on the back burner until January!

I stumbled upon this blog several months ago and it inspired me to begin the ABC project! So Dakar I have completed A through F. I also came up with a design to incorporate four seasonal PS patterns -- 2 at the beginning and 2 at the end. I will try to post a progress picture in the next week or so.

I often think about this project and want more progress but somehow never haul out the 4 ft rods to work on the behemoth. I will think about getting a regular goal because this is a fun project when I am actually stitching on it.

I want realistic goals, though. If I set the expectation too high then nothing will get done. 1/2 or 1/4 a pattern a month may be the most I can expect. I will have to test that.

I love these alphabet blocks.

Hi Vonna- I took up your challenge and will post about it today on my blog. So check it out!!

P.S. Thanks for the kick in the behind :)

I began the Alphabets today, gulp! I'm doing mine 9 horizontal and 3 vertical with an inch in between each for more decorative alphabets. I love the idea of adding textured stitches into each panel, perhaps with a few drawn thread ones too. Wish me well !

Thanks for taking care of my request.
I'm in for one block by the end of the year.

Well, I'm posting this FAR after this was originally posted, but is anyone else working on these or planning to start soon? I just bought my linen and all the DMC floss! As soon as my linen arrives, I hope to start this on Monday!!
