Nancy's Sewing Necessaries

As I reproduced the Nancy Alden sampler, I knew right away there was much more within the design she stitched. I've created seven different smalls, all from motifs within the sampler and using the same alphabets. She might have had similar things in her own sewing basket!

Note: The alphabets used throughout come from the sampler reproduction chartpak, available separately. It is assumed that you have already purchased that chartpak. If not, the alphabets are fairly common to those found in many other samplers and/or books you may already own.
