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"...

I have stitched Tiffany and Gypsy Rose. IN fact, they were probably one of the first pieces I ever stitched on linen or evenweave.

I wouldn't mind finding the others, too! :-) Good luck in your search!

Decision Made

After monkeying with the shells and beads some more, I decided to take them all off... ...and I think I like it best this way.  I did add...
