Theme-a-licious 2013 - Jardin January - Final



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

Hello again, old and new stitching friends! I'm back for the final Jardin January Theme-a-licious 2013 check in. I decided to just keep plugging away at Miss Adia here. She's now, well, a slightly larger yellow blob.



I did get some metallics in there (the coppery strands going from wing to dress; see below for closer look), and I am purposely trying to avoid doing the white just yet. Especially since I use a hoop, I don't want the white to get dingy as I work on the rest. I (hopefully) won't save absolutely all of the white until the end, but I do think it is a wise move at this early stage of the game.  Here's a close up:



And a full comparison shot, so you can see that I really did make some progress.



I'm going to try and post these final updates before the very last day of each month, partly to space out my monthly items, and partly to encourage me to NOT wait until the last minute, er, few days to participate each month. Thank you for visiting!

Excellent progress! I bet you'll beat the amount of progress I make on Autumn Queen this month!
