A new obsession
It all started in the "free" pile at Celebration of Needlework this past spring....
...where I picked up this.
Just Nan "Gypsy Rose"
part of the "Glorious Wings" collection
It was originally sold as a kit, but had been used, so I have just the pattern. Still, I love it. I'm not a fan of angel-themed designs, but I like how this one is - in my mind, anyway - more butterfly/fairy than angel. And I'm not crazy about the pink fabric, so the un-kittedness of it doesn't bother me!
This past weekend I snapped up this one on eBay. (For pretty cheap, too! Under $10 including the shipping, and this one IS the full kit.)
Just Nan "Tiffany"
So I went to Just Nan's website, hoping to find out more about the series. No luck. Boooo. I hate when designers completely remove the patterns they've "discontinued." But a quick Google search seems to indicate that there are at least 6 little designs like these. I'm not loving "Glory" or "Holly," but wouldn't mind getting my hands on "Crystal" or "Amber"...
