Lizzie Kate Summer Alphabet

I told myself I was going to finish this today & I did!!!! When I picked it up last Friday, I had the three top rows left to do. So, I did 15 blocks this week.
To refresh those of you who read regularly, this is the piece I rescued from a sale...the bottom row & a little of the next row was stitched when I got it.
It is stitched on 40 ct. linen. I have only stitched on linen once or twice before & NEVER on 40 ct. You know what thou......???? For the most part, I really enjoyed this!! I liked that it only used one strand of floss & the coverage is great.
I now have an empty container, so the kit that I reviewed a few weeks ago will go in it. I will be starting it real soon!
I hope everyone is safe tonight......there is some crazy weather going on. Prayers to the families in Southern Indiana....last I heard there were 8 tornado related deaths so far.
