Today is the finale for my No words, just letters posts, except this one has more than just a credit to the designer. First of all, here is the letter Z.

Here is the finished sampler. I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

IMG_20170701_120416It’s made from a kit by Design Works called ABC Bears. I’ve had so much fun stitching this design because, as you’ve seen in previous posts, completing each letter meant I could celebrate lots of mini finishes. The quality of the kit is superb with a clear chart and there’s plenty of threads leftover to make more nice things.

    Only one word ……..Gorgeous. 🙂

  7. Wow, congrats on a lovely finish. I love how colourful it is and I quite agree about the satisfaction of mini-finishes 🙂

  8. Wonderful finish. It looks amazing!

  9. Congratulations on the finish! It looks amazing.

  10. I love it! So cheerful and bright. Good job on 27 finishes! (one for each letter and one for the whole. 🙂 )

    • Thanks for the extra finish! I only bought the kit because it was ridiculously cheap. I had plans to just use the fabric and threads for something else. So pleased I stitched the bears 🙂

      • Of course the extra finish! That was a lot of work! Funny how we wind up loving things we weren’t sure about at first!

  13. It is so beautiful! I actually love that there are only the letters and that almost each little thing for each letter starts with that letter, it’s so cool! Well done on the finish!

  14. I love it! The embroidery turned out beautiful when you see the whole picture! So great, congratulations to a finish 🙂 !!!!!!
