Memories


It may not look like much based on this photo, but I started Just Nan's new Memories tonight. I finished up all of the cross stitching on the biscornu for Laura's exchange group, and only have the assembly left to do. As a result, I decided to reward myself with a new small/medium start. It is really gorgeous in real life, but very difficult to photograph so far. I feel like I am going back to my roots a bit with this one. Years ago (~20 years now), when I was first getting really heavily into stitching, I was primarily stitching Just Nan and Shepherd's Bush projects. My local shop owner at that time called Just Nan "the cutting edge of cross stitch" back then... I think the same still holds true. This one is a real treat, and with luck, I shall have better photos to share soon.

Stitched on today: Stitched on biscornu (for Laura's exchange group), and Memories

It's a fantastic start - I love the colours on this one. I think one of my first projects involving specialty stitches was a Just Nan too - many years ago as well.

It's a very beautiful beginning, Carol. But I can't agree with the 'cutting edge' Just Nan comment! ;)

Another great start! You are getting more snow aren't you? Ours is nearly gone - we've had a couple of warm days.
