Memories



Memories
by Just Nan

As you can see I've finished JN Memories, I just couldn't wait for Sunday. I started this on Sunday 22nd March, and stitched two bands on that day. Then two bands on 23rd, and 24th. No stitching on 25th. Then two bands on 26th and 27th, nothing on the 28th. Stitching the final two bands on Sunday 29th. I finally added the beads and the charm on Friday night-3rd April. There are some very pretty beads on this one, like little tear drops, and they really glow, I've tried to get you a picture, but this is the best I could get, if you look closely, you might just see something blue between the flowers on the bottom band.
Thanks for all the well wishes for my cold, I'm feeling a lot better now, but still need the tissues to go everywhere with me, and still coughing and spluttering. However, it was thanks to my cold that I got on quickly with Memories, as all I could do was sit in front of the fire and stitch, there was no blog reading, or emailing-so guess what I am miles behind - again!!

On Friday, I had arranged to meet up with Sally, I usually go there, but Sally surprised me, and got her dh to bring her to visit me as he was off work. Thanks Sally, I enjoyed looking at your finishes, and WIP's, looking forward to doing it again.

Another new start, this was something that called me yesterday, it's strange really, as I decided to start this the other week, but couldn't get past looking at it. This is Blackberries on Gingham, by The Sweetheart Tree. I really love the centre on this one.


Now, as it's Sunday today, it should be a Just Nan day, although not sure if I'll start a new JN today, you might have to wait until next Sunday, but I do know which JN will be my next one. Unless Sally manages to change my mind! - .......

I really LOVE the Blackberries on Gingham by The Sweetheart Tree which is really unusual as I usually don't like their designs but this one I LOVE and can't wait to see more of it. Your Memories has turned out beautifully. Patti xxx
