Theme-a-licious January round up

Hi everyone,

 So here is my first Theme-a-licious round up of 2014. Heather sets a theme each month for us to shoehorn our stitching into. This month is...
Jardin January
The holidays were a little stressful...let's relax in a nice garden. Work on any piece with flowers or gardens.
 So this was an easy one for me as I started the traditional sampler on New Year's Day. I've had a couple of rotation weeks on it and I must say with mixed results. The design isn't hard or the chart hard to read, I've just been a rubbish stitcher on this one. So here is my progress up to the end of last week. As you can see there are 3 flowers that fit nicely into the theme! 

I also did the Needlecraft Haven January challenge which was this cute little sheep design. It has a tree so I'm claiming it fits in the theme!! 

I could add in the little heart and notebook cover too as they both had flowers on, but you've seen those ;-). I'm claiming this month as a definite win!! Next month the theme is fantasy fiction so I may have to eek my Game of Thrones. Stitch out one more day as I'm very, very close to a finish as I only have about 250 stitches left on it! I can't think of anything else in my WIP basket or to do pile that fits the bill. 
Next week is my smalls rotation week so lots planned for that. Sorry that the text is all over the place, blogger just feels like it and who am I to argue.

Thanks for reading my lovely crafty friends.
