ABC's Stitcheries!

I decided to carry the ABC theme in a few pieces to group together.
My bad angles make things look more warped than they really are, lol.
This wall needs to be painted, so I just stuck them up there for now, but everything needs to come down soon, so will redo the decorations on that wall again.



Here is a closer look at the K is for Kitty.
The stitcheries are done from old illustrations.



Here is the pillow I made to go with them. I might do some more, it is fun doing the alphabet. I might try some with color, like an old children's book. I also have been collecting ones I find with animals and kids and some play ones. I would like to do them into a quilt.

I adore these! I have a ton of old illustrations I've saved to turn into stitcheries. I need more hands and more hours!

The kitty and child would look great on a quilt Debbie. Trouble is depends on large the quilt. :-) Bed size and everyone thinks they can sit on it when you are quilting :-) :-) :-) x x x
