Theme-a-licious Wrap Up - Jardin January


My goals for 'Jardin January' were to work on The Drawn Threads 'Alpine Garden' and Forget Me Nots in Stitches 'Glastonbury Garden' 

I'm really loving working on Alpine Garden, it's turning out to be so pretty.

Here's a closer view of the section I've done, I particularly love the violets

On Glastonbury Garden I thought I was finished with the big pocket but then realised I'd missed the final bit of the tracery pattern

The next theme is 'Figural February'  
'Who are the people in your neighborhood...your WIP neighborhood, that is? Give your people-populated projects some face time this month.'

I don't have any wips that particularly fit this theme so I'm going to have to be a bit creative!  I've decided to work on With My Needle's 'Fruits of the Vine' as the Hussif sampler has a 'Joshua and Caleb' motif on it.   Not that I expect to get to working on the sampler this month mind!  Otherwise I'm going to continue with Alpine Garden, I'm cautiously optimistic that I might be able to finish it...
