Prairie Schooler ABC Bee Blog

I have joined my first group! It's the Prairie Schooler ABC Bee. We're all stitching the PS ABC charts. The group was inspired by the photo above. Some brilliant stitcher somewhere had stitched all the ABCs on one piece of fabric - over one thread! Isn't it gorgeous? I haven't decided yet what I'm going to do. I will probably make some minor design changes - hope that doesn't make my fellow bees mad at me. And I know for sure I will substitute overdyed threads for the DMC. My quandry at this point is whether I stitch them all on one piece or do them individually. Vonna has a beautiful ornament tree tutorial on her blog the Twisted Stitcher. It's gotten me to thinking how nice the ABCs would look as ornaments on that tree. I have a small buffet in the bay window in my dining room and that tree with those ABCs would look really pretty there. I will definitely stitch them all; and probably over one. I need to sit down and do the math (it makes my head hurt so I'm putting it off) to figure that part out. You can go to the PSABCBee Blog by clicking on the name. Or, go to the Prairie Schooler ABC chart pics here - ABC - DEF - GHI - JKL - MNO - PQR - STU - VWX - Y&Z so you can see what we're all so jazzed about. Most of all, I'm excited to get to know stitchers from across the country and around the world who share a fondness for Prairie Schooler designs and a love of stitching.
