Wrap-up day for Theme-a-licious is the 31st, but again, I'm posting this a little early so everyone can check in while it's still the 31st for them. And also to give those of you who may have forgotten a chance to whip a post together. =) By the way, should we be doing these posts on the first instead of the last day of the month? What do you think? Leave me a comment if you have a strong opinion. Or even a weak one. ;)
So let's recap my plan for Jardin January:
- Shakespeare's Garden
- Convents Herbal Garden
- Rose Red Hat
Sanctuary fared much better thanks to IHSW! (Really, mainly due to Burn Notice and its vice-like grip over my spouse. =)
And for good measure, I worked on Les Rubans. Because it totally has flower-like things on it. See how this works? It's all up to you how strictly (or loosely) you apply the theme. ;)
Now it's time to talk about...
Send a Valentine to your favorite designer...or at least work on his or her designs for the month!
I'm having a little bit of a hard time making up my mind here. I have so many favorites! But I think I'm going to concentrate on three: Teresa Wentzler, Moss Creek Designs (Rae Iverson) and Mirabilia. Here's what I'm going to do:
- Teresa Wentzler: Peacock Tapestry. It's in progress, but just barely, and is a great candidate for the upcoming Amazon April
- Moss Creek Designs: Blackwork Band Sampler...or maybe Ye Shall Prosper. They're both on my WIPocalypse list!
- Mirabilia: I should be good and work on Autumn Queen (in progress AND on the WIPocalypse list). But what I really want to do is start Dancer, since Dasher needs company. And since it's my birthday this month, that's probably what I'm going to do. =)
So how did your Jardin January go? What are your plans for Fangirl February? Please add your link below (to your wrap-up post). And despite what Mister Linky says, you don't need to comment after linking, though of course I'll always appreciate it. =) Our next check-in post will be on the 15th, when we'll share how Fangirl February is going! And don't worry if you haven't posted before...just jump in whenever.
