January Just Nan 2014 SAL Update

Here is my progress on Just Nan's Patience Sampler. I expected to complete the first band and I probably would have, if I hadn't miscounted the positioning of the centre piece after the first rose! So after some frogging, here it is.
I'm stitching on the recommended 30ct Liberty fabric and I'm still undecided as to whether I like it or not. I feel that the fabric holes are 'big' compared to 32ct. Silly I know, but as I usually stitch on 28ct or 32ct linen, it just feels different. Still love what I have managed to stitch though.

  1. So pretty! You seem to be doing lovely work on the 30 ct. maybe you will get used to stitching on it. I love JN's samplers and this one is on my list of the one's I'd like to stitch sometime.

  2. Beautiful. I don't think I've ever seen this one stitched up, so I'm looking forward to following your progress :)

    Give the fabric more chance. It may be because you don't usually stitch on it so are not used to it? It LOOKS good to me so far!

  9. Gorgeous start! The roses are so pretty :) The fabric does seem a little open to me but it lends a lovely vintage look to your stitching!
