If anyone wants to add the letter "v" to the alphabet, I put information that I think will work here. Scan down until you see my name. Let me know what you think.

Yes, often "J" and "U" were missing on old samplers. "I" and "V" were used instead. You might enjoy reading this article about the "missing" letters.

  1. I REALLY enjoyed reading this article I knew about the I and V, but the bit about Ye being the Thorn I had NEVER heard a whisper of. So fascinating.

  2. Thanks for figuring out how to add it. Not sure if I'm going to stitch the alphabet or not yet but it's nice to know the "v" will fit if I want it to! Thanks!
