Just Nan SAL.

It's that time again, to update you all with what I've been up to. I didn't get chance last month to post my progress as I was at the Mirabilia UK retreat. It's the first I've ever been to and I had a great time stitching and making new friends that I'd only spoke to on Facebook before.
I've been stitching again on Motif Mystique and have been some progress. I have however made a mistake on the flowers on the top part and can't quite bring myself to unpick it at the moment.
Well Blogger is acting up and won't let me post any more pictures, so I'll see you all next time.

Help needed!

Hi there, I'm on the look out for a chart! Does anyone one have 'Crimson Fire Sampler' by Victoria Sampler that they would be willing to part with. I've missed a few on e-bay and have come up empty handed when looking online. I am of course willing to pay and cover any costs that are involved. Thanks in advance for your help.

Just Nan SAL!

Well it's that time again, time to show what Just Nan I've been working on.
I decided this month I would do one of the small limited edition ornament, 'Oakley Owlet'.
This is the beginning of it, I have actually finished the stitching but I'm struggling a bit trying to put it together, finishing is not one of my strong points! Unfortunately I don't have a more current photo as it's night here now and I can't get a decent one, hopefully I'll be able to show you him finished next month.

Just Nan SAL.

Hello, long time, no see! I hope your all doing well and those of you who are suffering from the Winter Vortex are managing to stay safe and warm.
I decided to join Zeb's Just Nan SAL. I've a lot of Just Nan patterns in my stash and thought that not only might I finally finish a few it might help me to blog a bit more regular! My first choice is 'Motif Mystique'. I'm stitching it on 32ct Raw Belfast with the recommended silks, Soie D'Alger. It's the first time I've stitched with these silks but I must say they are beautiful to work with.

I'm not to sure how long it's going to take me to finish, but hopefully I can get it done in a couple of months. I'll be back next month with another update.
