Hummingbirds Are Back!

I love fall but it comes at a cost. My favorite part of summer is watching hummingbirds darting around, swooping and screeching, hovering and sipping, glittering jewels on wings. I'm always sad to see them leave as summer fades into fall but I love the way my heart jumps at the first sighting of their return in the spring.

I have long wanted to design a hummingbird alphabet, something easy and quick to stitch, not a lot of color changes and backstitching, etc. I finally took some time to get it done, I hope other hummingbird lovers will find uses for it, too. I think it is very versatile, and can look very different with color changes, additional backstitching, beads, metallics, etc. Today's chart is just the upper case letters. I have also charted the lower case and numbers, but will post them another day.



The .pdf file is in Landscape format so you will want to set your printer accordingly.

Sorry I think I saw the word gummers as my comment flew by. Typo. Hummingbirds obviously. Thanks again for your lovely alphabet.

Hi, I just wanted to say a big thank you for your generosity in sharing so many beautiful charts. I adore the hummingbirds - sadly we don't get them in the UK - and also the rabbits. I'll share a picture when I've finished stitching. Best, CrossedPawsDesign
