Theme – a – licious catch up

Time to catch up on how theme-a-licious went for January. January’s theme was to work on something with flowers and or gardens in. I chose to work on English Garden and apart from the start I made on it for the crazy challenge I’m afraid I didn’t go back to it this month. I did however put in the garden on my Mrs Darcy Sampler. It seems I worked on a totally different piece than I decided on at the start lol and I forgot a mid month update so here are some pictures before the garden going in and after.

For February the theme is Fangirl February.

Fangirl February

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

For this month my fangirl goes to Jane Austen and the book Pride and Prejudice (I hear you all gasp in shock …not ! lol)

I WILL (note the determination) be working on getting more done on Mrs Darcy’s Sampler as it has one of my favourite quotes from the book …
” I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.”

and the other piece is that oh so famous line by Mr Darcy…

“You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you “
Now you can’t tell me that wouldn’t make any girl swoon šŸ™‚

So with both these in mind now I set off to start šŸ™‚
I did forget to add that both my Pride and Prejudice pieces are from The Sampler Girl.

Remember if you want to join in you can check out the theme-a-licious blog HERE and I’m looking forward to checking in with everybody.

I will be back tomorrow with an update on January’s goals and how they went and I will be setting out February’s goals.

Happy stitching,

    I haven't seen the Mrs. Darcy pattern before. I love it. Lovely work. I, too am P&P fan. I'll be watching your progress. I think I should follow your suit and stitch a little Jane.

    Oh how I love them all! Mrs Darcy sampler looks awesome. I love Pride and Prejudice (my second favourite of Jane Austin after Sense and Sensibility) but since I read them translated, I think it's actually the first time I see those quotes in English, and the Darcy one so got me melting on the floor ā¤

    Oh my goodness! Your needles (knitting too) are fast & the finishes & progress are lovely, Ruth. You add energy to my stitching mojo…thank you. Looking forward to your Feb. stitching.
