Image of Abel the Stitch Explorer Sampler Pattern
Not my stitching!!

I wanted to make a start on some embroidery, a nice sampler so I could learn some more stitches but love when I'd finished it. I knew I found the perfect one when I saw Nicole's gorgeous Abel the Stitch Explorer. It's so cute and available at her shop Follow The White Bunny, along with other gorgeous patterns (I'm eyeing up this one) and some amazing value bundles.

The pattern is not only super cute but comes with really clear and well thought out instructions, honestly I think she should charge more so go get one before she realises! ;)
Also if you like embroidery I strongly suggest following her blog, she has great tips and some lovely giveaways!

I have traced the pattern, while my daughter traced a monster onto paper at the same time!

I'm in no hurry to get this done, I will take my time learning the stitches and it'll be a nice project to have to hand when the baby comes.

p.s. I bought this pattern from Nicole's shop, she doesn't know I was writing this post and I hope she doesn't mind me using her embroidery picture!
