Some of my latest finishes

I have been a bit tardy in posting to this blog in the last twelve months and have completed far more Just Nan projects than it is possible to show here in one go.  These are my December 2012 ones.  All were stitched on the recommended fabric with DMC floss.

The Peppermint Snowflake Tree.  I have the other three trees in the series in my stash.

The Cardinal Tweet.

I have stitched all the other 2013 limited edition ornaments.

Here is Emma and Eliza's Christmas Hat.  Firstly the components, tree and tree skirt and then the finished hat.

If you want to see more of my Just Nan projects hop over to my blog here.

Happy stitching!

Hi guys,
if you missed out on the 2012 Gingerbread Mouse, you may already have heard that Just Nan is re-releasing it in limited quantities.

Most online shops should have it available on their sites. :)

Just Nan SAL

Hello all :)
I've noticed a serious lack of Just Nan stitching in the last few months. Here on this blog, out in the blogging world, and even my own stitching rotation.

With 2014 fast approaching, would anyone be interested in a Just Nan SAL? The aim would be to work on something Just Nan related, and at the end of the month post photos of what you've done?

If you're keen, I'll write up the details and post it on my blog. It would be awesome if we can share this far and wide, to bring more people into the world of Just Nan :)

Incentive to join (not that you need one right?): To add a little spice, excitement and motivation into the mix… I will do a give away each month. You are automatically entered if you’ve posted a photo that month. The give away will be Just Nan related. Of course! :)

Edit: The Just Nan 2014 SAL information can be found on this website. Sign up! :)

Santa Pinwheel by Just Nan for Needle Orts

Hi all,
following on from my last post, I receive the parcel and wanted to share what Santa Pinwheel looks like for those who, like me, had never heard of it before. There are so few images of it online, and all of them blurry, I hope this adds to the pool. It comes with the special whinzi frame and beads.

Information on some old Just Nan designs

I recently had the chance to purchase the following designs by Just Nan.

  • Santa Pinwheel, which was apparently an exclusive design for Needle Orts and came with a whimzi frame.
  • Silver Needle Sampler which came with a whimzi frame too.
  • Noah's Sampler Reborn.
I did a search on Google images and could only find one blurry image of the Santa Pinwheel, but no images for the Silver Needle Sampler. There were a couple of Silver Needle SAMPLERS, but nothing that looked like it would fit in a whimzi frame.

Was wondering if people knew more about these two designs and had photos to share, and anything more about Noah's Sampler Reborn?

Owl Winder Pocket

The Owl Winder Pocket has been one of my holiday stitching projects.

It was stitched on the recomende 28ct opalescent raw linen with DMC floss.  Here it is made up with the winder.

Would it be a copyright infringement if I offer to send my copy of a pattern to someone when I am done?

Williamsburg Stitcher's Case - not many left

Hi all,
just a head's up.

Paula from Haus Tirol has advised me that they only have 10 of the limited edition 30th Anniversary kits left, one of which has now become mine.

If you're interested in getting this but have been holding off, would recommend getting onto buying it asap. :)

More about it on Just Nan's site:

Williamsburg Stitcher's Case

Williamsburg Stitcher's Case
Vanilla Gold Legacy linen (30 count)
Stitched with GAST and DMC
Related posts on my blog

This was the Just Nan project I chose to stitch for the 2011 Crazy January Challenge. The case was designed to commemorate Haus Tirol's 30th anniversary. It's a similar finish to Octagonal Peacock, although the inside is a bit different. I especially like the brightly colored flower gardens.
