So this was this months theme...
The holidays were a little stressful...let's relax in a nice garden. Work on any piece with flowers or gardens.My original thoughts...
I have the perfect project for this - the poppy biscornu that I want to stitch to finish off my basket of biscornu challenge. The blackwork sampler I want to start also has flowers in it too.
I'm so glad it was an easy theme for me to get started on. As I showed you in the check in, I did the poppy biscornu and thank you for all of your lovely comments. I've tried to reply to as many of you as I can by email. Apologies to those who don't get a response, It's because you're a no-reply blogger and when I get my email notifications I don't get your email address. (You can change it in your settings if you want to to show email)
Crikey that was quite some tangent. So here is where I was when I last posted on the blackwork sampler
and here is the latest bit I've done. I've not stitched on it for a couple of days, hopefully it'll get an outing tonight as I've almost hit the half way point.
and the big picture, not the best picture, the light was almost gone when I got in from work this afternoon.
In case you were wondering the design is by Jane Greenoff and was featured in an ancient WOXS from back in 2006 (issue 114)
The optional christmas ornament SAL theme was tree or wreath so I'll claim the Christmas biscornu as that. Result!
Here is February's theme and my thoughts again...
Who are the people in your neighborhood...your WIP neighborhood, that is? Give your people-populated projects some face time this month.This has got to be my Big Bang Theory chart!
I've got a couple of other February projects lined up, if I think very hard I can twist the theme to fit too!!!
