Wed Letter Day

Before calligraphy took over, I used to cross-stitch, needlepoint, and a bit of crewel work. Thought it might be fun to include a needlework letter. Found the pattern at Tiny Bird Organics Colors were changed as I didn't have the suggested colors. Stitched on 14 count Aida using DMC Floss.

The pattern worked up quickly, in an hour and a half. I had forgotten how relaxing needlework could be. I used to stitch lots of gifts and for a time, stitched up samples for a woman who owned a needle shop in town. I'd get to choose the pattern and she'd supply the materials. Might have to dig out some of the old pattern books and work another small project. Have you gone back to an old past time?


  1. I loved cross-stitch at one time! This is so cute!

  2. Love the letter! I loved to x-stitch but haven't done any for awhile.

  3. I didn't do cross stitch but I made a lot of needlepoint and petitpoint gifts. Maybe that's why my eyes are so bad!! I do a fair bit of knitting in the winter time or whenever I need new dishcloths.
