….the order of the alphabet when you’re trying to use minimal aida!

Hello! It’s been a long time since I’ve felt as productive as I have in the last week.  Designing the alphabet frieze and posting older projects to instagram has really made me miss having goals other than getting the next washing load done and keeping the toddler dressed and entertained.

I’ve started stitching some of the letters and pictures and I’m quite happy with the way it looks so far. But there’s a lot of brown. My husband’s made the point that there’s a lot of brown in nature, so that’s bound to be reflected in a sewing featuring animals.  I’m still worried it won’t be bright and colourful enough for an infant. Anyway, we can but see when there are a few more letters on the board (or old t-shirt in this case). The actual frieze will be done on aida and framed, but while I’m working out the sizes of the pictures and which letters will go on which lines, pinning them to old fabric is working quite well. 

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, D is going to be a doctor. The rabbit will have a syringe and some other medical equipment!
