Give me a "B"...

The Jolly Man...
has almost arrived! And I just slipped the last few stitches into this:

Prairie Schooler letter B

"B"
Designed by: the Prairie Schooler
stitched 1 over 1 on 25 ct. lugana
using DMC as charted

I issued a challege...
over on the Prairie Schooler ABC Stitching Bee to refresh and renew our pledge to stitch the ABC's and finish one block by the end of the year. I thought I was going to embarrass myself and not meet my own challenge. But thank goodness, I met the challenge and I still have a week to go before the end of the year! Hmmm...what is next?!

So here is my...
efforts to date. I am hopeful that by the end of 2012 I'll have a lot more blocks than these two sorry ones I have already.
Prairie Schooler letters A & B

These pictures...
honestly do not show the loveliness (nor the daintiness) of these piece. It is much more pretty in real life. Honestly its really is!

Until next time...
I hope you all are on the "nice" list...heaven forbid being on that "naughty" list!

Merry Christmas!

  14. I almost bit on your 2012 ABC challenge, but that is too huge for me to start. Look forward to seeing how yours progresses, though.

  28. Wonderful finish, Vonna! LOL at your fear of embarrassing yourself by not meeting your own challenge. Oh, how often I do that to myself!! It looks great--I think that's one of my favorite blocks.

  30. LOL. I had to chuckle about embarrassing yourself for not finishing your own challenge.
    It's quite lovely.

  31. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas celebration Vonna. I also want to get back to the PS ABC - I have been toying with getting my B is for Blackbird out and seeing your lovely finish has inspired me. I feel like I am getting too many irons in the fire but isn't that what stitchers do in January - have a big blowout with starting new WIP's - wooohoooo
    Enjoy! Melody

  33. Your B is for Blackbird is beautiful! I have always loved the Prairie Schooler designs, will have to pull mine out. I finally set up my blog now that the Christmas craziness has passed, www.juststitchingalong.blogspot.com --you were right, it was easier than I thought, thanks! Happy New Year, Vonna!
