This alphabet is another old project. I finished this when Kellen was a baby (he’s 15 now). It’s in pretty bad shape. The frame is coming apart too. It seems teenage boys like this chart. I can’t tell you how many times the kids’ friends have stood in front of this saying the name of each object, they always struggle a bit with the O and the X. There is a slice in the fabric by the S (one of my favorite letters on the sampler) and I think the K looks like miss Ophelia.
Here are a few of the projects that may be in my 2011 line-up. I get distracted by new things so of course nothing is set in stone. I saw a blog promoting starting a new project every day for the first 15 days of 2011 and then working to get those done by the end of the year. I love the idea but should probably only start 5 new projects and finish 10 old ones.
I’ve made a teensy bit of progress on the border of my Red House Sampler – a very big project for me. I think I just might see this one on my wall in 2011.
