Just Nan May Update





Time to post  my Just Nan piece for May. I started Lady Scarlet's Journey this month. This is a 3 part piece, but I decided to stitch 1 part each month.
Sorry for a dark pic.

Smalls SAL -May

It's time for the May update of the Small's SAL. This month I stitched a biscornu by Ink Circles, a chart I've had in my stash for quite some time. It is titled Pretty Little Dust Collector.

I stitched this with the recommended threads and used 28ct. Wedgewood Blue and Luguana Baby Pink. I haven't found the right button for it yet.

May Stitch from Stash

It's time to post about the SFS SAL for  May. I had a carry over of $83.00 plus the allowed monthly amount of $25.00 which brings the total to $108.00
 I spent $1.60 again for floss that I ran out of. Having two boxes of extra floss has not been helping, seems I run out of something I don't have.
 I started a Mystery SAL by Donna from By the Bay Needlearts, its almost complete. I started stitching on my Just Nan SAL and also did my Smalls SAL. Will post those pics later.
Also continued on with some wips pieces.
That's about it for now.
Thanks everyone!

Crazy Quilt Block

I recently took a beginner crazy quilt class from Kathy. I have always wanted to learn to make one, so this came at the right time. I hesitated because I'm not really good at sewing. I've been a cross stitcher for a number of years, but decided why not.
I really loved it and learned alot. Kathy gave us some great information. I'm hoping to be able to do another class with her when she offers one again.   
Ribbon embroidery is something I haven't done before, and have been wanting to. Something else on the list of things to learn. Anyway, some of it came easy , some I had a little difficulty with. All in all I'm very happy with the way it turned out.
Now I just need to figure out how to finish it off, backing, edging , etc. I have never quilted before so this is entirely new.
