Theme-a-licious - January round up

Well the first month of Theme-a-licious has gone by.  I have posted my progress on my Theme-a-licious page so have a look!  The plan is to stitch on Mirabilia designs from my WIP pile for Fangirl February but really need to work on some others too.  I need to finish off the RR piece and I want to work on the wedding design for Helen and Kev who will have been married for 2 years in June - yikes!!

Apart from Theme-a-licious stitching, I have also stitched a little thank you card for my boss who was really understanding of my recent childcare issues and allowed me to finish early without docking my pay.  She is giraffe mad so hopefully likes this one.
Mouseloft kit
This is a clematis flower bud
We have actually got a clematis that never really died back last year and so never got cut back.  I was just having a bit of a wander round the back yesterday and we have a bud on one of the plants.  It shows how amazingly mild our winter has been so far as it shouldn't flower until June at the earliest.
One iris in bloom
another iris in bloom
We have actually got about 6 or 7 irises in bloom at the moment.  I am pretty sure they shouldn't be flowering until March.  It's bizarre.  I'm sure sooner or later we will pay for it being so mild.  Hopefully we will be able to get up the allotment and do a few bits over the next few weeks.

I'm sure there was something else I had to blog about but can't for the life of me remember what it is.  Oh well...

I love the little giraffe! I'm sure your boss will appreciate it. We have a couple trees here in full bloom; our Winter has been very mild, too (and I am NOT complaining!!)
