I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Will Ewe Bee Mine? Multi-motif Monograms with Matching Borders & Frames


Amazon Books

Howdy-ho and a Happy (and I mean Happy Happy Happy!) Wednesday!

Why so happy, you might wonder? Especially on a Wednesday??

Well, I finally finished this ebook and I can’t wait to show it to you!

It’s titled Will Ewe Bee Mine?

…because I just can’t resist dumb puns.

And, besides – it fits!

Will Ewe Bee Mine? Monograms for Embroidery

I’ve been sneak-peeking some of the embroidery on these letters over the last many months. I think the first one showed up back in February or thereabouts.

Would you believe I’ve been working on them since last November? I’ve had so much fun stitching the samples for this particular collection, but (I admit it) I’m pretty happy the ebook is finally finished!

I love, love, love these little letters – the motifs are fun and versatile, the stitching is as easy or as complicated as you want to make it (lots of room for interpretation!), and the outcome is pretty cute!

Will Ewe Bee Mine? features complete alphabet patterns with three different motifs – bees and hives, hearts, and a sheep – plus borders and frames to match. There’s a round frame, a square frame, corner borders, and straight line borders (horizontal and vertical) in each alphabet.

You can stitch these up on household linens, on quilt squares, on clothes and accessories – anywhere you want to add a border or a letter (or both!) to personalize something with some hand stitching!

Will Ewe Bee Mine? Monograms for Embroidery

The projects are suitable for beginners and beyond. You’re taken step-by-step through stitching each sample, and the stitches are illustrated step-by-step as well. There’s nothing difficult about these particular designs – they’re fun and easy to stitch, using basic stitches for a stunning outcome.

And of course, you’re always welcome to mix things up and interpret them with your own stitches, in your own way!

What’s In It?

The ebook comes to you as a 40-page PDF via a download link to the email address you use when purchasing.

Inside, you’ll find materials lists, techniques for stitching the letters and motifs in step-by-step photos, all the patterns (3 complete alphabets, each with 5 borders & frames), a photo stitch dictionary, and a resource page for finding supplies.

You’ll also find plenty of stitch tips to help you out along the way, that can be applied to any stitching project.

One of my favorite aspects of PDFs is that you can really zoom in on the photos while viewing on your computer, tablet, or mobile device. You can see crisp, clear detail unlike any you’d ever see in a printed book, which is very helpful when you’re working a project.

And one of my favorite aspects about these types of monograms and decorative bits? Not only are they fun to stitch, but they work up pretty quickly so that you can enjoy the satisfaction of completing a project in a short time.

They’re the perfect “I need a Stitch Fix” project!

And, because they’re small, they’re also easy to transport, so they make for great stitching on the go!

  1. Thanks, Mary! What a fun-looking ebook! Your stuff is always great quality. I can’t wait to take a peek… I just downloaded it. Wahoo!

    1. Mary…I did buy your book and have spent some time this afternoon enjoying the ideas, descriptions, patterns, and stitches. Nice job! And, I am already designing a book cover for my 9 year old niece and I thank ewe for this inspiration!

  2. Dear Mary

    Just purchased the ‘Will Ewe Be Mine’ (I love the pun) e-book and just had a good browse all full of wonderful embroidery delights, my favourite is the beehive and the sheep and I really like the added borders they make the monogram so much prettier. I like the stitches you have chosen as they are easy and look lovely. Thanks for comprising the e-book and for sharing it with us, it just gets better and better.

    Regards Anita Simmance

  3. WOW! I didn’t think I could love an alphabet more than your flower one of a couple of years ago (which I used!), but I love, love this one. So fun! I will be downloading for sure.

  4. Another great ebook, Mary! Many thanks for sharing your lovely designs with us, I’m really looking forward to having a go 🙂

  5. Ewe r so talented, beyond belief. I so love all the things you show and do! This is a very delightful idea and I can’t wait to purchase it. Wow you are the Queen of Thread….lol. Love love ❤️ it.

  6. Your needlework is so beautiful, I find it a treat just looking at all the photos and the video above. I’ve been learning a lot from your website. Thanks so much for the great tutorials.

  7. Congratulations on your wonderful new ebook! And thank you for it, too. I have given it only a very quick scan, but have already picked up a super-useful tip — and, should it need to be said, your designs are beautiful and your directions a model of clarity.

    1. Hurray!! With six grandkids, you’ll find plenty of uses! 🙂 Glad you like the video, Katherine – I’m always a bit hesitant to do little promo videos because my video-making skills are not exactly stellar. But they’re fun to make, anyway!

  8. Hi Mary,
    The ebook looks absolutely adorable. Quick question…
    Is it one alphabet or 3 alphabets?
    Many thanks in advance.

    1. Hi, Eva – Thanks! It’s one style of alphabet, with three motifs, and patterns for all three alphabets with the three different motifs are given, so that you don’t have to worry about transferring part of the letter, and then fitting in the motif, etc. Some of the frames have slight variations in them, and there are five frames and borders with each alphabet. Hope that helps!
