ABC for April K.

I was informed that my  HOE ABC Exchange package to April K. was received at last. Unfortunately, it seems that the enclosed postcard was missing. The whole thing is very strange because I sealed that Priority Mail flat-rate box with good quality packing tape.

I think that I had sent her a special greeting card as well.

Anyway, here is a photo of the stitched piece on the cover of a hard-bound writing journal.  I sewed the journal cover in coordinating fabric and then appliqued the cross-stitched mini sampler onto it. I embroidered a green stem stitch border around it to disguise the edge.

The pattern is from an old Piecework magazine. I'll post the creator later.
