A lovely flowery alphabet I've used to celebrate the feminine side of the family!
Each letter can be stitched with the name of a flower - and I have charted an option for each letter - or with the name of a flower you have in the family!
The example in the photograph has my sisters and my daughters, my mother and mother-in-law, aunt and grandmother! It is interesting how many family names are also names of flowers. Yours is bound to be different but will be very personal and very pretty.
The border is the female relationships which encircle us all
I provide the full flower sampler as well as the working alphabet for you to chart your family names. There is certainly space to add more than one name for each letter if your relatives share the same initial! Alternatively you could keep the garden flowers and add the names of your family flowers too.
I have worked my sampler on pale blue 28 count evenweave. You also have the option to choose 14 count aida also in pale blue but either way the kit includes plenty of thread - allowing you to add more than one relative at each letter - and a lovely gold needle.
This is a very satisfying project and, as I've said before, there is love in every stitch!
If you would like me to chart your own flower family sampler for you, please email me and I'll see what I can do!
If you would prefer to use your own fabric and threads the chart is available at £10.50
