Theme-a-licious 2012 BEGINS!

Jardin January

The holidays were a little stressful...let's relax in a nice garden. Work on any piece with flowers or gardens.

Welcome to the first Theme-a-licious 2012 post!! I'm extremely excited, especially since we have this way shiny header graphic provided by Michael. I helped with the icons. =) If you visit the Theme-a-licious page, it will explain how to get this nifty banner on your posts. If you just grab it from here and upload it to Blogger, the animation will NOT work. There is also a non-Nathan version for those of you who are not fans. (WHAT?? =) That's OK, more Nathan for the rest of us. ;) I'd appreciate it if you link the banner either to the Theme-a-licious page or to this post (preferably this post, so it will be easy for people to use the Mr. Linky to visit others).

Anyway, next month this post will be filled with lots of pictures of all the stunning progress I'll make, as well as plans for Fangirl February. But I'm getting ahead of myself!

Here's what's on my list for Jardin January:
  • Shakespeare's Garden
  • Convents Herbal Garden
  • Sanctuary
  • Rose Red Hat
OK, so that last one doesn't technically have a flower on it, but it's named after one, so that's good enough for me. ;) Mine's going to be more of a silver rose, actually. I took the easy way out this month and just picked the projects on my WIPocalypse list that were gardens. =)

As for timing, I'll probably work on one of the stitchy gardens a week, then pick a favorite for the last week. I'll work on the hat throughout the month. I lost my favorite grey hat and it's getting cold! =( That is, as soon as I finish knitting a sweater for a certain tiny girl!

So join in the fun! Post about your plans...what are you working on? Do you have any goals you want to meet? Are you Themeing just on weekends, or the whole month? When you link your post below, please use the URL to your post rather than your blog, if you would. And please put a link back here in your post so people can easily find other Theme-a-licious participants! Thanks and let me know if you have any questions or problems. Did I mention I'm excited?? =)

Wow! This seems fun but without a LNS store nearby, nor the funds to buy stash... I may have to just watch all of you stitch like crazy!!
