However, I have been seeing some of the gorgeous work that you all have been doing - well done, all of you! Keeping the Christmas tinsel glittering!
Anyway, I thought that maybe it was time to think about themes for next year - 2019!
I am proposing three themes for next year - so that there are lots of chances for people to dip in and out and be as flexible as possible.
My three themes are:
Theme One: The Twelve Days of Christmas (this has been such a big hit the last few years that I am loath to let it go.
Theme Two: Christmas Carols again - although I am looking for lots of suggestions for which ones to include this year, please.
... and a new theme, based on the fact that I have just found this whilst cleaning out my Girl's Nest....
Theme Three: Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Magazine 2001 to 2010.
What I am proposing is that if you want to stitch Theme Three, you stitch an ornament from each Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Magazine from 2001 to 2010, with two free choice months (in June and December) when you stitch a design from any other JCS Christmas Ornament magazine that you like.
I will generate a random order of years for the other ten months.
(Of course, if you don't have any of these mags - which for some of you I would find hard to believe, lol! - you can just choose either Theme 1 or 2 - easy peasy).
I hope that you like the three themes but do please let me know by the end of September if there is a Christmas Carol you would like included for 2019.
HO! HO! HO!
