Sampler Saturday

Over the past few weeks I have making progress on my sampler stitching. I'm pleased to say that I have now completed Just Nan's Winter Blues sampler. By keeping to the proposed schedule that Jo of Serendipitous Stitching suggested for the Just Nan Junkies Facebook group I kept on track. My current plan is to complete this as a bell pull.

Winter Blues - Just Nan
Fabric: 28ct Zweigart White Cashel linen
Threads: Suggested DMC and Kreinik threads
Embellishment pack included with chart

I have now started the next sampler for Just Nan Junkies and it is Nan's Garden. I'm behind on the proposed schedule but I will catch up. So far one of the things I like about this design is the picket fence. The brick Florentine stitch works so well here.
Nan' s Garden - Just Nan
Fabric: 28ct Zweigart Platinum Cashel linen
Threads: Suggested DMC threads
Embellishments: To be sourced 

Finally, I have completed three of the seasons on 4 Wishes. There is now only Autumn left. This might take longer to complete as I plan to return to Alpine Seasons Garden before the end of the month. These brighter days have me wanting to take it out. I know it's just a notion I have but I prefer to work on it these days in brighter daylight.

Fabric: 28ct Zweigart Raw Cashel linen
Threads: Suggested DMC threads

  1. Congratulations on the Happy Dance for Winter Blues, I am glad the schedule helped. Nan's Garden is a little bit more ambitious some weeks! But I always leave room to catch up at some point. I loved the Florentine Stitch fence too. And those cute bees.
    Nice work on Four Wishes, I'd want to stitch each season at the relevant time of year!

  2. what wonderful Nans you have there! Well done on your finish and progress! It is always helpful to have a group to encourage you!

  3. What a beautiful finish, Mary! I love the shades of blue and the added embellishments. Wonderful progress on your other Just Nan pieces, too! Hope you have a wonderful week ahead ♥
