Carriage House Samplings Quaker Alphabet WIP

Finally decided late last night what floss I was going to use for Quaker Alphabet. I chose the Threadworx 1082 Cabbage floss and DMC 3866 for the big motif at the bottom. I may change the DMC at a later date, however, that is what I have pulled for the big motif at the bottom. I am liking how it's turning out so far. This is a really quick and easy stitch, and I can see doing this again, but changing the floss and fabric to fit the seasons. I have no idea why I chose this pattern, as I am not really a fan of Quakers and samplers in general, however, for whatever reason, this one spoke to me, so here I am. Go figure, eh? :)

At any rate, here are the stitchy notes and picture! :)
