7 a is for...


acquiring new skills!  I've made a little progress on my Daisychain ABCs crewel sampler from Posie Gets Cozy.  
I had never chain stitched or made french knots before this.  Or used crewel wool for any sort of embroidery.  The instructions that came with this kit are great, and french knots aren't nearly as scary as I thought they were!  
 Moving onto letter B now!


  1. This is going to be quite lovely:) Beautifully done!

  2. Oh my goodness, you are just feeding my want to get back into needlework. I used to cross stitch ALL the time before I had kiddos, and I've been wanting to pick up some embroidery lately. I'm off to visit Alicia now and check out what she's got to offer!!
    I love your A! So cute.

  3. ok, this is going to be the cutest thing ever. LOVE it.

  4. Super cute! I've had this pinned, but didn't think to try yet another new thing.
    Is crewel different from regular embroidery, other than the wool and different needle? How's it going for you?

  5. Lovely! I have my kit just need to make time!

  6. So pretty! I'm going to have to live vicariously through because this is something I would SO love to be working on! I like the color you chose for your background.
