Just Nan's Summer Wings

Today is a beautiful spring day. The sky is blue, the sun is out, my mini-daffodils are blooming... I love spring! I even sat outside for a while in the sunshine.

My Just Nan Summer Wings isn't too far away from being finished. A little more stitching, a little beading and then made up into it's final form (a humbug).

Nearly there with my Just Nan Summer Wings humbug

Once that is finished I will get cracking on my Christmas ornament exchanges. I have six to make. I have had out all my JCS Christmas magazines and other Christmas charts out deciding what to stitch. I am looking forward to it.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend wherever you might be.

Love your JN project - the colours are really lovely and bright. Funnily enough, I'm working on the Hootzi Owl humbug myself right now too :) I have a feeling yours will be finished before mine :P

Hello, I hope you don't mind me popping in- I came via Nicky at Farm Girl Stitching and noticed you said you were in Upper Hutt - I stayed there for a couple of weeks last year as my brother lives there.... a beautiful area and I enjoyed trips to around....
I love your stitching and had a laugh at your UFO's.... they look so pretty even if unfinished!
