Peppermints and Peacocks Oh My

It is a big decision to select something from Just Nan's many beautiful designs. I decided on Peacock Cypher.
I am going to stitch it for The Just Nan Stitch A Long 2014 instead of stitching some of the smaller designs.
I do have some problems with some of the specialty stitches.
My patient wore kind of thin on Christmas Roses so I am avoiding that issue for now.
Just Nan Peacock Cypher
Progress 2/10/2014
I think I am going to like it and I have been wanting to stitch some peacocks. I am sure it would be prettier if I could use the silks (I wanted to get started on it and didn't feel like searching) so I am using DMC 3808 and 3809 on 28 count linen.
I am going to stitch on it Tuesdays and Thursdays.

That takes care of the Peacocks now on to the Peppermints.
I finished Peppermint Lane By Country Cottage Needle Works. It was one of my oldest UFO's. I don't remember when I started it actually but I know it has been several years. I am so happy with it and I really enjoyed stitching with the pretty Crescent Colors. I don't know why it stayed hidden so long.I am looking and trying to decide which will be my next UFO to finish.I am thinking on a Lizzie Kate Easter Sampler as I am thinking Spring. I am so wanting winter to be over.
I am off to stitch on a little Valentine freebie.

Have a great day and thanks for visiting

I think the Peacock Cypher will be very pretty. It's on my wishlist, but have joined the Stitch From Stash SAL this year,so will have to wait a little longer.
Your Peppermint Lane finish is lovely.

You have a great start on your Peacock Cypher. Good luck stitching on it. Peppermint Lane is very pretty. Congratulations!

The pic of you on the profile is lovely Bonnie, nice to 'see' you. I haven't noticed that before.

You've chosen a lovely design and made a great start on it too, JN's are so addictive aren't they. I have quite a few in my stash, perhaps one will make an appearance this year?

Peppermint is a super finish, well done. So pretty.

Lovely start on Peacock Cypher. Peppermint Lane is sweet, will you frame it or do a pillow finish?
Stay safe and warm.

I want to find a frame for Peppermint Lane. I am thinking on taking it to the framer. We are expecting bad weather for the next 2 days. Freezing rain and ice. Hope we keep our power.
