Just Nan Exchange received

I received this wonderful package from Natasha for the HOE Just Nan exchange. Natasha must have been reading my blog - as you can see the extras are spot on for me. Pins, mints (Altoids tin for finishing), beads and threads, wow.

Now the exchange piece is JN Crystal Heart, and this is wonderful, a shame my photo doesn't do it justice. I haven't come across this JN design for me, so it was a perfect gift for me. My regular stitching readers will know that I love JN, and have lots and lots of JN charts.

Thank you Natasha.

This has been another busy week for me, I had hoped to blog more this week, but on Tuesday I had to work later, and was only home for 35mins before I had to go out to my stitching club meet. I can't remember what happened on Wed night but I'm sure something did. Then on Thursday it was my dd's birthday - 17, and there was an unplanned 'bit of a do', so it was a trip to the supermarket on the way home from work, and then food for her and her friends. Friday, we went shopping for the day, to get her a new mobile phone, this was planned for Thursday, as she was to meet me after work, but her friends descended at 1pm, and then stayed for food. So we had a good shopping day on Friday, I bought new home phones too, and then home for a quick bite to eat, and then to sis and bil's, as it was bil's birthday. So, as usual, I now have nearly 400 blog entries to read, and a bulging email box. Hope you're all well.

How utterly lovely! I adore how she finished the edge too with that selection of beads :)
Wonder if she used the original colour scheme for stitching it, or if she supplemented with her own colours?

Either way, yay!
