September Just Nan SAL

Just Nan SAL
Just Nan SAL is hosted by Zeb of Keep Calm and Cross Stitch

Unfortunately Zeb is no longer updating the SAL on her blog but that's no reason to stop stitching and posting!  So here is my monthly update.

This month I finished the third design in the Moon Riders leaflet.  This is Jinx the Witch:

And here are all three together:

I stitched these on 32 count lavender evenweave using the DMC conversion provided. I changed the moons to DMC 4090 one of the variegated threads and also made the borders stripy.

Having stitched them all on one piece I am now undecided as to whether to frame them in a long thin frame (which I don't have and haven't seen) or whether to scrap book them individually on one page.

Short post today so I will include this story -
I'm a bit of a fan of Mr. X Stitch and his blog, there's often something unusual and alternative going on.  This post is a Battle of the Needles between stitching and knitting.  Which will win?

Deadly Knitshade vs Mr X Stitch

Finally, I am having an impromptu Blog Hop to celebrate my 500 Followers, all details on the previous post.
