I couldnt think of a fun nickname or theme for Feb lol, Guilt-Free January was the only one I paid attention to, though I think there was a Mirabilia May way back when. So here's a bouquet of roses from my garden, from me to you for Valentines :)
But to recap, my GFJ starts were HAEDs "QS Lovers", "Gloaming", and "Nocturne". So it was a BAP theme too lol. But with those on the go and others waiting, it looks to be a very pretty stitchy 2012. I've ordered some patterns for ''smalls" and hopefully will order some more HAEDs before the sale is done. I do love smalls but outside the Nessessaire and the Chatelaine ones I dont have any others. So it's been fun to cruise the net to see what's out there. On Bikegirl's blog she had posted a book of the coolest little set, designed to look like an english cottage and it is too lovely to resist! So I didnt! It reminds me of Jane Austen of whom I'm a huge fan, in particular the little cottage in Sense & Sensiblity. I just wish there were some ladies in the set but maybe I can figure something out to that affect... Or maybe there is already & I just havent seen it yet. 2012 is to be the year I broaden my horizions in the stitching and try new things and new styles and designers I've admired but never attempted. And so far it's been wonderful getting the mojo back.
