It's time to show all the progress we made for this month's theme, Jardin January!
First of all, I did some work on my stumpwork piece, which I said would be referred to as Medieval Floral. But its proper name is "Corncockle and Dragonfly".
My IHSW was filled with garden pieces, but I haven't done any more work on either Spring Garden Gate...
I did do just a little bit more on Shakespeare's Garden.
I'm close to finishing the main part of Juneberry, a triangular lace shawl (N.B., has "berry" in the name, so totally fits in garden theme. ;)
I also got close to finishing my Mint Twist socks (You have mint in your garden, don't you?) I almost didn't post a picture of these, because I forgot to take a daylight shot, and they look really manky and completely the wrong color....
Now it's time to share our plans for THIS month, which is...
Fantastical Fiction February
What kind of fantasy creatures inhabit your Works in Progress? Or perhaps some fictional characters have leaped from the pages to your needles? Let's stitch on projects inspired by imagination.
Here are my plans for the month:
- Continue working on Shakespeare's Garden, since The Bard wrote all manner of fiction. =)
- Stitch on one of the characters from "A Visit from St. Nicholas"...you can probably guess which one
- Stitch the next Dragonlet, definitely a fantasy creature (two turtledoves)
- On the knitting front, start Katniss's cowl from Catching Fire! The cowl may not have been described in the book, but it's at least inspired by it.
- I am sure I'll come up with some more fantasy creatures...I'd love to start Mirabilia's Bluebell Fairy (she is all kitted up), but it seems like I should finish *something*....
So how was Jardin January? Was it a calm stroll through the garden? Hopefully no frogs invaded! What are your plans for Fantastical Fiction February? Please add your link below (to your latest Theme-a-licious post), and visit some other Themers if you can (everyone loves comments and encouragement!) Unlike last year, there will be no check-in post on the 15th, so our next post will be on March 1st. I'll post mid-February to remind you about March's theme. It's never too late to join in or send suggestions for future themes!
