Just Nan's "Sparkling Iris" is finished and framed!


I was hoping to get this done yesterday but today is fine...at least it's done! Whew! I did a so-so job framing it but it works for me. LOL! It is stitched over two on 32 count Zweigart Periwinkle Prism Belfast Linen. I used plain ol' DMC floss and beads supplied in the chart pack. There are enough of the small white alabaster beads if someone wanted to stitch it again without the Swarovski crystals, soooooooo...I'm giving away the chart and leftover beads. If you're interested, just say so in your comment and leave your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win. Only comments on this post will be considered. I will draw a name on Wednesday, June 17, 2009, at 7 PM Central Time.

Hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday. Happy stitching! :-)

Oh Lori - this is so pretty. I haven't 'given in' on that particular Just Nan so I would love to have it gently used.

That is beautiful LoriRay! Did the frame come with it as an LNS kit or did you purchase it separate? Yea...enter my name. I just love the way this turned out.
Thanks!

Kim - Thanks! :) The frame and linen were purchased separately but that frame was meant to go with that design. The beads and Swarovski crystals were the only things included with the chart.

Good luck in the drawing to all who are entering. Don't forget to mention if you are interested in being in the drawing and be sure to include your e-mail address. :)
