Stitching Away

SO excited to have received this book for my belated birthday!!  I LOVE it!  And Elle is just as happy! She's already gone through the whole book, deciding which letter she wants to substitute for which. You'd be surprised. For example, she wants the boys' T for Tornado instead of the girls' T for Tiara. There were a few different letters here and there. So apparently I'm making her a quilt.... She's pretty excited.

This is what I've come up with for the girl version. What do you think? I've substituted the peach for the pink, but that's it. I haven't got all the thread yet. And the author uses Cosmo embroidery thread, which I'd love to try, but it's cost prohibitive. But DMC will work just fine, I'm sure.

By the way, that solid fabric really is peachy, not tan, dang iPad.


  1. I love this! I used DMC, because I don't know where to buy Cosmo, and it turned out great! I would love to try the Cosmo though.

  2. The peach is so so pretty! I love the picture, so I know I'm just gonna love the quilt!

  3. Also tiara for tornado? Hilarious!
