Stitch Groups

Did you know we have several stitch groups? There is a Wednesday night group that meets at 6:30pm and a Tuesday morning group that meets at 10:30am. Both get together on the 1st and 3rd weeks of the month. there is no charge just bring your current project and come and stitch,bitch and most importantly laugh.

We also have a Stitch a Long that is working on 'Mouline Rouge' by Long Dog Samplers

They meet the last Saturday of the month. It is taking them a little longer than expected to finish this piece but they are planning the next project so keeping checking here for updates on that, maybe you would like to join them?  I'll try to take some photos when next the group gets together.

Isn't it amazing how much stitchers have in common, we come from all different walks of life and yet when it comes to stitching we all are very similar. Is there one stitcher out there that doesn't have more patterns then they will ever stitch in there life? Do we all not go weak at the knees when we see new colors from our favorite thread companies? Can't we just spend hours just looking at our stash dreaming of the possibilities.

My consolation is that I am in very good company!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day

Just Nan

Hello All,

Today I wanted to highlight a couple of new Just Nan's limited edition pieces. The first is 'Minerva's Mouse' it is one of those wonderful enameled figurine boxes that Nan does every year.
Minerva's MouseMinerva is the goddess of wisdom, so it's a perfect name for this wise little owl.
Miss Mousie hides inside the box when she's not out chatting with Minerva

I love this piece not only because it is beautiful but my grandmother, who was one of my stitching mentors,  loved owls. She had quite a collection of owls and when she passed away a few years ago all the grandchildren received some of her pieces. This one is the first that I have added to my collection. 

Another of Just Nan's new limited editions is the 'Emma and Eliza' series. The first to be released is 'Emma & Eliza in the Garden. It is a wonderful band sampler, the photo does not do it justice, the colors are luscious, there is no other way to put it.
I can't wait to see the next release, it is a Halloween theme.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day
