Prairie Schooler Alphabet progress...

Hello stitchers,

It is time to update you all on the Prairie Schooler Alphabet cross stitch.  It drapes over me like a "lap rug" as I stitch in hand. That is not a bad thing as it as we are heading towards winter at a rate of knots here in Tasmania. The stitched piece is a biggie. It is currently 90cm wide and 40cm deep. I have a little over two blocks left to stitch on the second row then I will start on the third and final row.

N is for Nest is now completed. Those baby birds are adorable. Tweet tweet.




O is for Owl is complete. The main owl's eyes pop out of the piece. This block has an autumnal feel.




P is for Parrot is almost complete. The parrot's colour combination is heavenly gorgeous.




So here is the whole piece to date...

Just amazing to have a piece that large. Very pretty stitching, I have a few of these charts and my favorite is the R is for Rabbit one.

This is so much fun to see! I just started this project as one large sampler on January 1, 2015. I am stitching it using 1 thread over 1 on 25-ct Lugana in a color called Mushroom. I am stitching it 3 across and 9 down so it will be long and narrow. I think when I'm finished stitching it, the design area will be about 8 1/2 inches wide and about 36 inches long!

I started stitching this project in the center so the first letter I stitched was the letter "N", then I stitched the "O" and moved up stitching "L", "I", "F" & "C". I am currently stitching "K" next to the "L".

It's fun to see that you have changed some of the color choices - I'm using all the suggested colors. Some of them do seem a bit dark and don't stand out too much but it's a lot of fun to work on, isn't it?

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful work on your blog. I don't have a blog but I really enjoy reading them and it's great to see what others are working on too.

I look forward to your updates on your PS ABC progress - it really is beautiful!!

I cannot imagine stitching this in hand. Isn't it heavy?

The K for Kitty is my favorite but this whole piece will be amazing.

The whole alphabet together will make an amazing finished piece. I would be so worried I hadn't calculated my sizes right, or had missed/added a stitch somewhere.
