Finally Fully Finishing Fun for June
Hosted by Rachel the Ten Hour Stitcher
This SAL is designed to motivate us all to do something with that box of Finished 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).
It's been a framing festival this last month.
First of all, a professional frame job. I wanted Snowfire Christmas by Just Nan to coordinate with another sampler I had in my collection so I took the original to my framer and asked her to match it.
Here's the other sampler for reference:
Elizabeth Designs - Joyeous Noel
To make up for the expense, the next two are charity shop frames!
Just Nan - Morning Meadow
A 2020 finish
One of the members of the JN FB group always stitches the name of the sampler at the bottom and I thought this was a brilliant idea and will do it from now on.
This is a recent finish and FFO'd within the same month too!
Just Nan - Nan's Garden
In the JN FB group we have started choosing a sampler to SAL every two-three months. Nan's Garden was the choice for Spring and we allowed ourselves two months to stitch it, a band or two each week,
Here are some close ups of the bands:
I managed to get a copy of the chart which included the embellishment pack and the cute frog charm
The chart also came with a Just Nan charm which I fitted inbetween the hedgehogs.
The fabric is actually a nice reed green 28 count linen which is very hard to photograph. There is so much natural light at the moment everything is bleached out.
Our current sampler is Follow the Needle and I have stitched Band 1 so far:

Finally, I'm going to be taking sign-ups for my Summer Blog Hop on the same theme as last year - Stitching Friends are Friends Who Count. Have a look at this post for last year and let me know if you'd like to take part this year.
