Theme-a-licious 2013 - Jardin January - Mid Month



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



Ta-da!

Wait, what do you mean "that doesn't look like a garden"? Um, it's not. But I figured it was okay to work on something, and especially to start something new, if it actually has the word "garden" in the name. Right?!



This is Mirabilia's Aida the Garden Fairy. I know, she doesn't look much like a fairy yet, either. Give me a break, that's only 5-7 hours of work. I didn't even get started on her until around January 12 (too much going on!). This is my first new large start in forever (possibly since before Luke was born in 2004). I have to say, after spending years only starting things that would fit on fabric the size of a piece of paper (or smaller!), staring down at that blank fat quarter was rather intimidating! But I have this lovely, um, blob now, so it will be okay. Hopefully, there will be either a little more to show you at the end of the month, or I'll pick up something that has actual for real flowers on it (but I wouldn't hold my breath).

This is my very first time participating in Theme-a-licious. Thanks for visiting!

WOO HOO!!! New start! New start! Totally, completely in theme. I have to say, I kind of feel exhausted even looking at all that gridding! I never would have got through it.
