Just Nan RR, Round 1

I put the last bead on tonight. I am so glad to have this done. This is Angi’s piece. She wanted a Christmas theme, and sent along all the silks, beads and metallics for us to use. This is my part. Band 1 is from Peacock Cypher (this one sort of reminds me of sugarplums), Band 2 is from Winter in the Square (I put beads in the center of each snowflake for some sparkle), Band 3 is from Nan’s Garden (thank you again, Carol, I knew this would come in handy!), Band 4 is from Baby Garden, and my signature line is just Rhodes Squares and the over-one alphabet from Yuletide Joy Stocking (Angi asked us to use this alphabet, and I think it looks great!).

Here’s the whole thing so far. Angi’s piece is going to be so beautiful once we’ve all stitched on it! What a fantastic holiday piece to hang.

I really hope Angi is pleased with it. Mailout is Monday, so I will be getting a new one in the mail soon. I hope to be able to get a little more stitching in on Eric’s stocking. I have no idea how I am going to get everything finished before the end of the month. Ack! And my book club is tomorrow night, and I still have a 100 or so pages to go before I am finished with the book. But, since we are talking about Just Nan today, I received email notice that her new Limited Edition WhimZi design is out – a Christmas design. So, I should see that in my mailbox soon as I am signed up for the automatic for these with Silver Needle. I signed up for the automatic last year after I missed her very cute WhimZi called (I think) the Night before Christmas. It has a sleigh with presents and is on a deep blue fabric. I am so kicking myself for missing out on that one. Oh well.

Thanks to everyone for your words of encouragement and warm thoughts. I appreciate all of my readers so very much! Ya’ll are great! And yes, please take a look at my poor weather pixie, she is tired of wearing tank tops in November – but it was like 87 degrees today…hello!! November!!

I am grateful for my Tacky Bob!
