Theme-a-licious 2012 January Update



It's time for a quick update on Jardin January. I've not managed to get as much done as I hoped so far this month because the eye infection put paid to doing much stitching last week. Fortunately it's cleared up now so I'll be able to crack on.

I had just picked up Anniversary Roses when the infection hit so there has only been a little bit of the over one in the centre rose done.

Once my eyes started recovering I decided that it might be wise to give the over one a rest and picked up 20 Flowers. Most of this has been stitched this month, apologies for the terrible photo

I'm planning on working on 20 Flowers for the rest of this week, then I'll pick Anniversary Roses back up.
