Lisa and I started Just Nan Winter Heart Humbug last week and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed stitching this piece. I just love everything about it especially those Rhodes Hearts in the middle of the snowflakes. They are so pretty in GAST Jasmine. The making up was very easy too although I did read and re-read the instructions and keep checking as I was stitching it up just to make doubly sure! So here it is, front and back view:) I think I may have overstuffed it as it doesn't quite sit right but I do love this.

I will be back later in the week with my WIPs and maybe another finish. BRD Peppermint Twist is close to being finished so I'm going to get that out again tomorrow then once that's finished I'll stitch on JN 4 Wishes for a couple of nights until that is finished. Then I can have some new starts!! Lol! And you will not believe what had been out today! Lisa was saying she was doing 10 stitches a day on her personalised sampler and I asked if I could join her in doing 10 a day on............... wait for it................ no Julie, sorry it's not the Christmas mystery......................... it's Chatelaine Spring Morning!! I dutifully popped 10 stitches in today but carried on and did a few more but, woe is me, I discovered a mistake I'd made the last time I stitched on it ( nearly 2 years ago!!!!) and ended up frogging all I'd put in today and more! Lol! However I did put at least 10 back in so that's OK!!
I had a wonderful start to Monday as I discovered I'd won a giveaway on Robin's blog. I am so excited to be one of the lucky winners and it certainly cleared that Monday morning feeling! Thank you Robin!
