It a busy workshop here in my house for us elves. I have finished three gifts and wrapped them. One gift is for my quilt group Christmas party.

What is it about alphabets and stitching? An alphabet makes any chart so wonderful. Even a simple chart with just A, B, C is charming. This sampler has three alphabets on it and I am really enjoying stitching them.
