ABC Needlebook

I just learned from Isabelle in France that she received the needlebook that I sent to her for the ABC exchange on the SBEBB.

I stitched a design from The Drawn Thread called "Too Tiny Samplers" and then did a buttonhole edge around the design so that I could easily finish it off. Using the letters from the alphabet, I stitched our names on the back. Turned out pretty good I think!

Here are some photos that I took, but be sure to stop by Isabelle's blog - her pictures are much better!




One of my favorite blogs to visit - she does the most amazing over one stitching!
