OOOH, just gorgeous .... I would love to stitch a 'C' - I haven't done much applique/embroidery before and could very easily be tempted by these patterns - especially since they were designed with simple running stitch and blanket stitch .. looks so easy to do :)

Edi said...

You lucky, lucky girl. What a wonderful sneak-peak you've had. And what a fabulous fun weekend. Can't wait to see all the fun you were up to :)
My letter of choice - "E" of course :)

I would start with "V" as Violet is my youngest grand daughter's name and I know she would just love to have it framed on her dressing table. In violet of course to match her name.

Oh Wendy, I can't wait to read about your adventures at LGS. I am hoping I will make it in 2015 to Brissie.

I would try to stitch Rosedaisy D first for myself, but I expect I would end up stitching R first as I am really bad at making things for myself.

Melody said...

Fabulous to meet you on the weekend. I'm a huge fan of Jenny's designs and would stitch the M first, not for me but for my dear 84 year old friend, Mavis.

Sue B said...

Hi Wendy, I fell in love with these designs at LGS. I have two grand daughters Z for Ziva and P for Paige so they are the two that I would love to stitch first.
