At the American Girl web site. Click here and then on Felicity's House, unscramble the word, and play :-)


Is it sad that I have done this tons of times before? And I am 25 years old? Hmmm...

How cute! Love your blog!!!

So fun! My daughter (and I) will have tons of fun with this.

I just thrifted some lace edged napkins and was planning on doing a little stitching this evening. Thanks for the inspiration!

So much fun!

You are truly inspiring, I look forward to your new fresh ideas. Thank you for sharing the link.

I would have thanked you sooner, but Maria and I have not been able to stop sampling!
Too much fun!!

This was so much fun! Thanks for sharing.

This is really neat! Thanks for sharing.

My unscramble word was "TAVERN". Who knew Felicity was a lush? I had to blog it...

Frannie and I play at the American Girl site all the time. I enjoy it as much as my 7 year old daughter.


Thanks! I had so much fun making mine. Now I'm going to see if I can whip up a little chart.

Cute! This is EXACTLY what I would do if I was working on a deadline! *wink*

Okay, I have just spent the last twenty minutes making samplers when I should be quilting.

When I looked at that site, it reminded me of a Canadian show called, "Road to Avonlea." It's like the Anne of Green Gables books, so it's set on Prince Edward Island, and was such a lovely show.

And interestingly enough, I just finished an embroidery project today!

you blog is beautiful, and has inspired me countless times.

thanks for sharing in the last entry. how you described the feeling of drawing makes it sound so beautiful. i think i'll have to stick to quilts for now ;)

This is so precious! I' m on my way to check it out...:)

oh how fun. i wonder if you can make it a wall paper? thanks for the link.

What fun! love it.

How fun, thanks for the link.

What a fun idea! Thanks for sharing!

That is so cute! I love it.

Okay... at 52 I can't believe I went over to American Girl's website... but I did...and I must say I made lots of samplers.

Thanks for sharing a great site.

I love seeing an old art used in a new way to inspire!!! And they said needlework was a dying art!

I really like the one you created. Very nice.
