Cross Stitch, Finishes, Just Nan

Winter in the Square

I finally managed to put the final stitches into Just Nan’s Winter in the Square tonight – and I am sooooo in love with this finish, it’s ever so pretty 😀

Even in the late hour of the night, the photos didn’t come out too badly – I’m so glad I decided to tea-dye the fabric, as it’s added just the right level of colour to the linen and makes the white thread stand out so much more.

The next slot in my rotation is supposed to be “Large/BAP Projects”, and I’m supposed to be started Mirabilia’s Enchanted Mermaid next, but I need to empty the scroll bars first, so I’m finishing up LHN’s Home of a Needleworker Too first up, as those are the scroll bars I need.  I managed to finish up the little spool of thread, and most of the letter “H”, but that’s all so I didn’t bother taking a progress piccie.  Fingers crossed this weekend I’ll be able to put a few more stitches into it and perhaps get that one finished off 😀

  1. Winter in the Square stitched up beautifully 🙂
    Isn’t it funny how its the small touches that really make a design pop? I finished Scream Girls but it didn’t really sing for me until I’d given the girls their lashes and eye highlights!

  2. Congrats on your finish! I love these designs myself, they’re on my …one day… list. Still waiting for that day to arrive 😉

  3. Congratulations on your JN finish. It is lovely. The colors are wonderful and I love the sheep button/treasure!
