Alphabets on Linen (146)

Today's Stroll piece is Alphabets on Linen by Cedar Hill. I have always loved this piece... a simple design using cross and eyelet stitches. When this chart came out we had a number of our customers at Twisted Threads stitch it with overdyed threads, each totally different and lovely. I stitched my version, in 1995,  on a 28 count linen with Caron Collection Wildflowers Fiesta (this is till one of my favorite colors) and double framed in an East Side Mouldings frame.

Thanks to Becky G. we have an answer about my little bird food jar. It appears the spout was  soldered on; she figured out the company name and I googled a photo. Somebody definitely was thinking back then. Now I Iove it even more!!! Thank you Becky--you are a master sleuth......stitching friends are the best!

We are leaving this morning for a visit to our daughter's in NC. I will try to continue "strolling" while gone but if the internet is persnickety, I'll catch up when I return.

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship.



  1. Stasti, enjoy your trip to NC. That was a great adaptation for the bird seed, pourable spout...very clever adaptation and great sleuthing job Becky!

    I love the double framing on your stitch. I wish I took up stitching many years ago.

  2. Oh Stasi, I love your stroll piece for today. What a neat fiber choice to go along with the ABCs! Have a safe journey to and from NC and enjoy your visit. Stitchers are the best; kudos to Becky on the sleuthing job.

  3. Enjoy your trip south! I miss seeing you, maybe at Jamboree? Hugs!

  4. Lovely finishing Stasi! I love the colors in the thread you used. Have a safe trip to North that part of the country. RJ @stitchingfriendsforever2
