Just Nan Sirens of the Sea Finish

Just Nan
Sirens of the Sea






This was a delightful stitch; very colorful and full of summertime fun. Makes you want to head to the beach. I did not stray too far from the chart. I only altered a couple of things. I changed some over 1 stitching to over 2 and used a couple of overdyed threads. The fabric is 28 count cotten candy opalescent jobelyn (or lugana, I forget) from Enchanted fabrics. I stitched this over 2 (mostly). I started it on June 18, 2009 and finished it today July 2, 2009.

    Gah I really want to get started on this, but must wait til I get paid before I can ordered the fabric for it.

    BEAUTIFUL finish Tracy! I utterly adore the shimmer of the fabric too :D

  3. Tracy it turned out beautiful. I'm going to do mine on 28 count ice blue cashel instead of what it called for.
