Theme-a-licious – Mid-January 2012

Phew, midway through January and we’ve only just started to get snow (and rain). It isn’t exactly the kind of weather to make one think of gardens, but this month’s Theme-a-licious theme is bringing flowers and gardens into my life just the same.

One of my focus pieces for January is Egypt Garden by Chatelaine. (I really want to call it Egyptian Garden as that sounds so much nicer to my ears, but Egypt Garden is the name on the chart and on Martina’s website.)

Egypt Garden bu Chatelaine

As you can see, I have finally  made some progress. The lotuses are starting to come together. Hopefully they will be complete by the end of the month.

And, as much as I would love to finish the centre, I’ve decided to leave all of that beading to the end. I will probably do some of the other beading as I go along, but I’m worried about beads become loose if I do all that beading in the centre.

Next month’s theme is Fan Girl, which of course means I will be working on a TW piece. In the meantime, it’s back to work on Egypt Garden and Gingerbread House.

  3. Mmmm…all that blue! This would be very fun for me to stitch. And I agree…”Egyptian Garden” sounds better to me, too.
