More JN Progess and......

Yesterday was Petra's birthday - she had a great day from all accounts & I'm so glad she did. I sent her this "Homepsun Heart" pincushion & matching fob along with the "Love" scissors. It was fun to make & hopefully she'll find it useful.
Here is the next "weekly update" on my Just Nan's Common Ground. As you can see, it's getting there, but I haven't stitched much at all since Sunday. Hopefully I'll get to stitch on it this weekend. After much looking & thinking, I've decided not to send this one to Jill Rensel. I think the border is "mat" enough for it & custom designed mats might be a bit much. That's okay... my list for Jill is as long as your arm, so I won't do without! I already have a SB kit that I want to stitch that I think I'll start soon & just order the mats for those instead! See, easy and wonderful! :-)


My floor stand still hasn't shown up :-( but maybe today. The qsnaps do seem to be helping with the pain some, hope it continues and that the floor stand helps even more. Only one way to find out!
Thanks for stopping by.... happy stitching!

You are absolutely incredible! Common Ground is just appearing before our eyes, so quickly and you are in pain?? Gad Zooks! How fast could you stitch without pain?

Beautiful work, Amy.
