Just Nan Stitch Along 2014

Thank you for your kind comments on my Just Nan's Berry Pin Keep.  I was asked what DMC flower thread I substituted for the DMC Medici Thread.  This is what I used - Medicis Wool to DMC flower Thread: 8120 to 2841, 8501 - 2842, 8502 to 2644 and 8839 to 2640. 

My Just Nan check in piece is Memory Stocking from the 1999 Just Cross Stitch Magazine Christmas Ornaments Collection.  It's not very big,  3" wide by 4.5 inches tall.  I hope to have the finishing completed for the February check in :)  Not sure about the pearl button,  just a thought for now.

  10. Hello

    Thank you for your kind comments on my blog.
    This piece is beautiful and I love your Berry finish too.
    Have a good week.

  11. Lovely stitching progress! I think the button is a really pretty idea, maybe a little gold one might pick up on the metallic beads inside the rose on the toe?
