The Stitcher's Garden


JBW Designs Renee's French Alphabet

Per Designer: Renee’s French Alphabet has been adapted from an antique sampler with beautifully  formed graceful letters. The original sampler was worked in wool, and did not contain the  letters : J and W, which would have been common in France at the time it was stitched. I have added both of those letters to the chart, by adapting existing letters in an antique  format. A single letter could be worked over one thread to create a tiny pin keep or a  monogram could be stitched and finished as small pillow.
