Alphabet Club B = Detention for Me!

I'm so late with this post, I'm due for a major detention!

B is for many BEAUTIFUL charts
such as the BOO Club Series by Lizzie Kate.
I currently have four of them as WIPs: Creepy, Spooky, Eek, Fright, and Treats.

And I've finished three: Pumpkin, Brew and Monster.

B is also for Brigitte of At Brigitte's Place, who had the wonderful idea of showing charts in her stash for each letter. She was kind enough to let me borrow the idea.
Here are some B's from my stash that are at the top of my To Stitch list:

Cherished Teddies BEARS
I have a lot of these as I collect them. I think I have close to 20 designs started but haven't worked on them lately so no update pics. Instead, here are more I'd like to start!
Carousel, The Spirit of America, and Gardening Angels, all by Gloria and Pat

BABY Samplers
Although my first cross stitch finish was a baby sampler for my niece, I have yet to make them for my two girls. I like these two the best: Baby Girl Birth Sampler from One Nice Thing After Another by Gloria and Pat, and Noah's Ark For Baby by Leisure Arts.

Also in the B file, I have a BERENSTAIN BEAR leaflet by Country Cross Stitch adapted for Paragon Needlecraft,
BIRDHOUSE Welcome by Dimensions, BINGO by C & L Crafts and Co, and Main Street by BUCKEYE Designs.

Of course, I couldn't forget the designer, BROOKE Nolan, of BROOKE'S BOOKS. I recently discovered her and love a lot of her designs. She has tons of adorable freebies over at her website. You can join her Yahoo Group to access some free charts. She also has an Etsy shop
where she sells her designs. I bought the Little Women set; I think when I start these, I'll stitch them on one piece of fabric rather than four.

Thanks for reading and looking. Hopefully I'll be on time next month!
Blessings :-)


  1. I love Berenstain Bears! When my sons were little I bought loads of their books and I think I enjoyed them more than the boys did.

  2. Hi Kate,
    You amaze me with all of your crafting.
    Enjoy the rest of the week.

  3. That is a HUGE 'B' file! Love the Halloween finishes. TOO cute!

  4. Huge stashing B! I love those Boo club charts.

  5. Great progress on the Boo Club pieces Kate. Love all of your soon to be new starts.


  6. Love all the B projects. What fun to share with us!

  7. Great B post! You had me ogling those lovely B stash, your Carousel teddies and Berenstain bears are my fave.

  8. Loved the Halloween finishes. Such a lot of projects on the go.

  9. You have not just four Halloween words, but five on the go. I have that same Noah's Ark pattern. Love any kind of sampler. Will have to check out Brooke's site. I really should start stitching again.

  10. Your Halloween word stitchwork looks very nice. You're always so busy - you amaze me. :)

  11. Absolutely LOVE the LK Halloween charts!!!

  12. Love seeing all your "B" stash! And the Bernstein Bears... goodness haven't heard their name mentioned for many a year!
    Love the LK stitching... :o)
    Great post :o)
    Hugs xx

  13. Great B post, definitely worth a B+ for content.
    Love the Boo charts and the Brooke Nolan too. I also used Brigritte as one of my favourite B blogs.

  14. Kate, how great to see your B post. I'm a bit behind with blog reading so it's a nice surprise to see my blog here in this post. I was hoping that you would show some of your B designers as I love to see other people's stash. And you haven't deceived me, lol. My favourite would be Main Street - I have always been fascinated by this kind of charts showing street scenes. And my second favourite is Birdhouse Welcome. I think I have a similar one in my stash as well.

  15. Nice article great post comment information thanks for sharing
