Whoops

I got a bad attack of itchy fingers over the weekend and succumbed to the urge to start some new projects. I've been trying to fight it off for a while but could resist no longer after Chris mentioned that she was going to start 4 Wishes as her 'Just Nan Sunday' project. This reminded me just how much I'd wanted to stitch this design when I bought it so I dug it out and kitted it up.

Stitched in the the recommended DMC on a piece of Sugar Maple Fabrics Putty Lugana. I'm planning on joining Chris in stitching this on Sundays.

Thinking about this made me decide to have a Saturday project as well and I've decided to focus on Drawn Thread designs as along with Just Nan these designs comprise the largest part of my stash with two folders full each. The design I've decided to start with is Forget Me Not

Stitched using the NPI silks provided in the chart pack on Lakeside Linens 36 count Vintage Light Exampler
