Just Nan SAL February

Time for the February Just Nan SAL update!

This SAL is hosted by the lovely Zeb over at Keep Calm and Cross Stitch. You can find details of the SAL here.

I have been working on a sampler design called Queen of the Needle.
I'm really pleased with the amount of progress I have made this month - I've stitched six bands!

I was able to learn some new stitches this month which was a lot of fun! This is partly how I managed to get so much done - I love to learn!
Here we have satin stitch, Smyrna Cross, Daisy Satin, large 3-colour rose, heart darning stitch and fan vault.
The empty space in the middle is where I will attach a large charm at the end.

Here is how the sampler is looking as a whole so far...

The next band is quite a large one and is all cross-stitch and back-stitch so I am going to concentrate on completing that as March's Just Nan goal.


The February SAL check-in can be found here where you can see what all the other participants have been working on this month ^^
