Finally Fully-Finishing Fun for March

Hosted by Rachel the Ten Hour Stitcher

This new SAL is designed to motivate us all to do something with that box of Finishes pieces instead of just storing them under the bed.  We will all be linking up on Rachel's blog on or after the 10th of each month (10 Hour Stitcher - 10th of the month).

Once again, I have been focusing on my scrapbooking.  You're going to see a LOT of scrapbook finishes for this SAL over the year!  I had the Christmas Ornament from February and some Just Nan smalls which were waiting for the perfect paper.


Ink Circles Poinsettia from Just Cross Stitch 2008



Just Nan Noah's Rainbow


I splashed out and bought the official charm for this one!



Just Nan Butterfly Bouquet


Just Nan Butterfly Rose



Just Nan Thanks a Bunch



That was a satisfying way to spend an afternoon; cutting and sticking.  I do enjoy going through my papers and finding the right background for each piece.  By February all the calendars at work have been reduced to 75% off so that is the perfect time to grab a bargain, 12 pages for only £2.50.  You may recognise the artwork of Monet for several of my Just Nan designs.

Finally, Easter is rather late this year but I will be running my usual Easter Blog Hop where we all Hop around like Easter Bunnies to find the mystery phrase.  Supply your own chocolate!  I will be doing a sign-up post soon with full details of the Hopping fun.

Rachel said...

Thank you for joining in and ensuring there are now less UFOs stashed away under your bed!
All of your Just Nan pieces are lovely (of course) and have definitely been shown off effectively. I've said it before, but the pastel colour palettes are gorgeous, and the charms make such a difference. Keep up the good work! :)

Wonderful collection of pages you created after an afternoons playtime.

Sheryl said...

What very pretty designs Jo, I like all of them, difficult to pinpoint one in particular, maybe the poinsettia is my favourite.

Katie said...

They all look fantastic and match their backgrounds wonderfully. Congrats on finishing them up. Mark me down for the blog hop. That's the day we leave on our vacation but we are supposed to have Wifi on the train so hopefully I can play along hopping while on the route. I'll set my post to post that morning early so that won't be a problem. Now to find a little piece to stitch up.

Love how you are finishing your pieces. What a great idea!

Leonore Winterer said...

Great scrapbooking again - they are all so pretty with their little charms. I can see why you had to get the original one for Noah, it would be quite difficult to find an adequate replacement I think.

Christine said...

Lovely finishes Jo

What a perfect scrapbook, they look great! Is the book all Just Nans?

Mary H said...

You must have so much fun matching scrapbook papers to your stitching! That in itself is a talent! I love seeing the parade of Nans-you always have some I have never seen before!
