Just Nan 2014 SAL October update

I didn't do any stitching in September but I returned to my Just Nan designs in October. I finally finished stitching 'True Blue Heart' but I have no idea yet what it will be made into. I didn't have the original embellishments for the design so I had to find alternatives. I'm happy with the Sapphire flowers that I bought but less so for the Amethyst Opal heart. It blends into the surrounding threads too much for my liking. I might change it later if I find something that I think is more suitable.

Stitched on 28ct White Cashel linen

I've made a start on Mitten Men as I wanted something small and quick. It's small but I'll need to come back to you as to whether I found it quick. All being well, this design will be finished by the end of November.

  1. Your Just Nan piece is looking lovely Mary. The saphire does make the piece pop - so I understand what you mean about the blending in. It's still a gorgeous piece!

  2. A fabulous JN project, a lovely finish.

  3. It looks stunning but I can see what you mean about the heart blending in.

  4. Love your Just Nan piece and your new start looks lovely.
