Theme-a-licious January Round Up



Here is my round up of Jardin January. I only had two goals for the month I wanted to work on Just Nan's 20 Flowers and Forget Me Nots in Stitches Anniversary Roses. Because of succumbing to the eye infection I didn't get as much done as I hoped but I'm still pleased with the progress made.

On Anniversary Roses I'm still working on the band I started back in October but I have finally finished the all the over-one in the roses, now I'm onto the Montenegrin stitch...

To give you an idea of the size of this sampler when I finish this band I will be half way through!

On 20 Flowers I've made good progress on the front.

The theme for this month is 'Fan Girl February' and so I have decided that I am going to mainly concentrate on With thy Needle's Fruits of the Vine Hussif. I also need to work on a gift but I'm not going to be able to blog it until it's received but it's by Blackbird Designs so it fits the theme as well.
