I was looking on pinterest the other night and came across a pin of this pattern, Daisychain ABC's. Back when I first started blogging, I found a blog, Pretty by Hand, that I was following, and the blogger did this pattern in her own colors. You can see her version here, hers is very pretty! I had wanted to do this sampler when it was the "popular" project everyone in blog land seemed to be doing, but I was still working outside of the home, and knew I didn't need to add another project to my ever growing to do list. But, I now have more time, and I remembered seeing done in different colors, so I followed the link and bought the download pdf pattern. If interested, you can go here.
I chose a almost white linen to trace the pattern on, mainly because I like white better for my background, rather than using a color like the designer did.
The embroidery colors I chose to use are the same colors that I used in the "Birdie Stitches Quilt" (post can be found here). This way, when I am done, I will be able to hang it on the wall in the room where the quilt will be, which will be in the spare bedroom. A good way to tie in all different fabric, thread, and types of crafts together.
