Alphabet UFO

The other day when I was looking for the chart for my blackwork Japanese lady, I came across my alphabet sampler, which hasn't seen the light of day for many years.

It's by The Cross Eyed Cricket.

I forgot to take a 'before' photo, but I finished stitching the 'H' and have started on the 'I'. I haven't done much, but I plan on sitting down tonight and stitching as much as I can.

I still haven't found the chart or one of the colours for my Japanese Lady, so it looks like I might have to purchase another kit so that I can complete it. When the kit arrives, I plan on stitching on her until she's finished, because she's half completed.


  1. That's horrible about your Japanese Lady! I did some "re-arranging" once and accidentally threw out a pattern for a needlecase kit that I have... so, to this day the kit is still sitting on my shelf, silk threads and all, with no pattern. I considered re-purchasing the kit, but I think it's out of print now and it was a bit expensive.

    You're UFO is great! It's awesome that you are working on it again. Do you still grid your fabric like that? I seem to be making a lot of counting errors lately... I think I'm stitching too much when I'm tired... and thought about gridding my fabric, but I've heard it's very time consuming.

  2. I bet you anything Karen, when I've purchased and received the new Japanese Lady kit, I will find it!!

    I only gridded this one because it was my very first attempt at using eveweave. Just seems to help me with this particular design though.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and for writing a comment, it is much appreciated :)
