I got my order from Silver Needle yesterday. It is going to be such a fun stitch. It is the new Just Nan Humbug.
Of course I had to start it. The big job was to go looking for the called for threads. I was looking for the right threads for the Rose needleroll too. Just Nan uses really bright colors. They are ones I wouldn't naturally choose but I've done lots of Just Nan and I trust her choices (well, up to a point!).
The first Just Nan I stitched I was crazed by all the color changes. Stitch two stitches then change color. I am now much more used to how her designs are and I love them. This humbug looks like it uses a motif from another Just Nan design. Queen of the Needle, I think. I love blue and white pottery so this is right up my alley. I've got one of the flower pots almost all done. I told myself that I had to finish the "fugitive" scales of Mermaid Treasures before I could go back to the humbug. So that is what I did this morning. The next set of scales, which is the last five scales are a blue color called "Deadly". So the plan today is the work on Deadly scales and the humbug. What fun!
