January Just Nan SAL Check In

First of all, thank you for all the well wishes on the weather here! Two inches of snow doesn't usually shut down the city, but two inches of ice almost certainly will. I've had many people who lived for years in the North tell me that they can't deal with ice, either, LOL! =)


Today is the first check in for the Just Nan Stitch Along, hosted by Zeb at Keep Calm and Cross Stitch. I thought I had a lot of Just Nan pieces hanging out in my stash, but you should see some of the lists of the others participating! Makes me feel quite sensible for once. ;) You can see a lot of eye candy by visiting this month's check-in page here. Zeb is kindly hosting all the blogless stitchers' check-ins.

As for me, I mentioned earlier that it felt like a victory just FINDING Lady Scarlet's Journey and all her pieces-parts that were scattered all over. So, I didn't get that much stitching done on Part II.

But it seems my own "journey" to track down all the supplies is not over, since the first color I wanted to stitch with wasn't to be found in the container with the other threads! If only I'd leave myself a note when I steal from one project to stitch another....

LOL for all the effort to do this design, it's coming along wonderfully. :)

I just adore this era of Nan's designs! But don't adore how hard they are to find so kudos to you!

I have a whole bin full of JN class pieces and other JN pieces in various stages of completion - I should have joined this SAL - Oh what a "journey" thru the past it would be to crack that bin open. Cheers and I'm glad you and DH are safe! Enjoy your weekend - mel

I have this one too. I already stitched the Christmas companion piece.
The JN SAL group has really gone bananas with the collecting fever LOL.
