Here is where the piece was last month:
I have completed another Just Nan ornie as part of my 30-a-day stitching challenge. This was a quick one, a mere 18 days for the stitching. I will finish it as an ornie next weekend:

I stitched 60 stitches on it when I started it back in March so I have a head start with 90 stitches already on Day 2. It's a pretty one, all in greens and pinks.
Finally, the competition on the Blogger of the Week is finished and I have published all the comments. I will announce the winner on Friday. So stay tuned for that!
