just stitchin’ again….

On a trip back home to my folks, my mom, who has an eye for vintage, showed me a vintage alphabet tapestry she had picked up at a car boot. It was such a lovely piece and it got me thinking about its history – who made it, who was it for, where it had been and if it had become a family heirloom passed down through the generations.

Being pregnant at the time, I decide to create a little bit of family history by stitching a modern-day alphabet tapestry for our little baba’s room.

When searching for a pattern I came across wee little stitches selling contemporary cross stitch patterns. Their superhero alphabet was exactly the kind of pattern I was looking for!

Unlike ‘give me work‘ the superhero alphabet only came as a pattern. As I had already worked with Appleton Crewel wool on ‘give me work’ I decided to stick to what I was used to! I purchased my wool and canvas from sew exciting, an online haberdashery. They have been brilliant and so willing to help when I rang for advice.

So, I had my pattern, canvas and wool and got stitchin’…..
