Just Nan SAL .......

Today is our JN SAL posting date.  Zeb of Keep Calm and Cross Stitch is hosting this SAL.  You can click on the link at the top to take you to the rules of this SAL or on her link next to her name.

Well, I had started JN Pansy Basket small filigree packet while on vacation.  I got the MAJORITY of it done while on vacation but just ran out of time for completing the stitching and then finishing it into the box.  So.....I will just use that one for next month's JN SAL. 

When realizing I would not finish the Pansy Basket project, I pulled out JN Winter Heart Humbug.  It was all xstitched, and I just had to sew on the beads to finish it.  Then what did I do but stitch the outline in the WRONG COLOR last night.  So I had to rip that out despite my husband saying "Oh it will be fine with that color." wouldn't!  I explained to him the blue outline should have been stitched in 2 strands white for the finishing of the humbug.  He understood what I was talking about AFTER it was finished. 

This humbug was stitched in the thread colors called for and the suggested fabric.




I tried to take pictures all around it for you to see.  I JUST LOVE IT!!!!  IT'S SOOOO CUTE!!!!  My husband did ask if it had a "use" or was it for just decoration.  I just looked at him, grinned and said, "Decoration!"  hehe

I have the remaining Humbugs in this series so look for them to be stitched hopefully this year!!

Happy Stitching!


  1. I have never stitched Just Nan: they arent for me but I love seeing other people's finishes. They look so delicate and intricate and like yours, totally cute. Well done x

  2. What a really cute finished project! Congrats!

  3. How lovely. I have this one in my stash and I would love to stitch it this Winter. You have done a great finishing job here., I shall refer back when I come to do mine!

  4. Way to go on getting your humbug finished, Brenda! It turned out great.
