Nancy Molka from New York stitched her Alphabet Samplings Book back in 2005 when it was first published in Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly. (It's also now available as a separate retail chart.) I think Nancy's book was the first one I saw completed.
There is lots and lots of stitching on this book! Didn't Nancy do a fantastic job? Thanks, Nancy, for sharing photos of your wonderful work!
The inspiration for the book is an antique stitched book I own. It was stitched on canvas using wool threads. I stitched my adaptation on linen using silk threads.
Did you notice on the book pages that, when the original stitcher ran out of room on a page, she just ended the alphabet? Then she stitched the remaining letters on another page where she had some extra room. Isn't that whimsical? I love the charm it adds to the book.
The stitched book can be a great addition to your needlework basket--just look at all the wonderful alphabets you'll have handy.
