Jan/Feb Theme-a-licious Update

Jardin January

I’m calling January a success…

First, a finish January 12 (there’s a flower or two):


A Good Marriage
Lizzie * Kate
Smokey White Belfast
Started Dec 25, 2011
Finished Jan 12, 2012

Next, progress on three WIPocalypse pieces:

CCN Liberty Lane (flowers on the ends there…)

Mirabilia Lilac (wings are 100% braid.  They were such a joy to stitch [a little sarcasm there] and I added more green on the bottom)

And finally, Long Dog’s Rosemarkie (reminds me of an English garden)

Now… on to a new month…

Fangirl February

Send a Valentine to your favorite designer…or at least work on his or her designs for the month!

I have far too many favorites to limit to just one for the entire month.  And how convenient that all the pieces on my WIPocalypse list are by favorite designers….

Planned:

  • L’Epoch Nouveau – Dimples Designs
  • Toy Shoppe – Mill Hill
  • Stroke of Midnight – Teresa Wentzler
  • …and then, dare I hope, a finish when I start back to Liberty Lane?

Stay tuned!

January WIPocalypse

Welcome to the first WIPocalypse update!

I had hoped to have a finish, but sadly, it is not quite there yet…

Three words left and the bottom band.  Definitely a finish this month, just not quite in time for the full moon 😉
