First Row is Complete!

I was delighted to put the final stitch in I is for Indian today, as that means I have finished the first row.  Hoorah! I started this project mid-January 2015.  It takes me about one month to stitch a block.



I am stitching it on 36ct Belfast linen in a raw colour.  I am using mostly the recommended DMC threads in 2 over 2.  It is a devine project. I cannot wait to start the next row.  I will be stitching J is for Jack O'Lantern over Halloween which is perfect timing.



I hope you enjoy my photos. How are your alphabets going out there fellow readers?

Hi Jan, I am in awe of your beautiful work. The colors simply pop when stitched alphabet next to the other. One row down is incentive to complete the next. Have fun through the winter months! Thanks for sharing. Elizabeth

Jan, I am just getting started on the alphabet and am not sure how far to space each design to make them come out even. I am stitching 3 rows of each. Thanks, Tammie
