Take it Further February Colours / My Band Sampler 19 – Details 546 & 547 February 17th, 2008

Take it Further February ThreadsThe Box of threads on the right is my selection of The Take It Further February Colours.

The next thing that I have stitched on my Sampler is an Alphabet…The letters are easy enough to form on the spot but by having an alphabet to reference then it will be easier to space words for best visial effect.

My Band Sampler 19 - cup of tea

Simple Samplers BookThis Cross Stitch Alphabet is from Simple Samplers by Yvonne Mathieson…I adapted a few letters where I prefered a different shape…All Letters are stitched with Stranded Cotton Embroidery Floss but each colour is a different number of strands making some letters heavier than others.

A to E has 6 strands
F to J has 3 strands
K to P has 5 strands
Q to Z has 4 strands

Bottom row…the Cups and Saucers are from an Ondori Book Cross Stitch 300 Motifs I adapted there tea pot so that it is short and fat rather than tall and skinny and the jug is adapted from the cups…these are stitched with 4 Strands of cotton floss.
