2016 Themes are here!

Hi everyone,

So sorry that I have been in absentia from this blog but I have been quite ill with the double whammy of tonsilitis and the flu!  It certainly knocks you out, that is for sure!

Anyway, I am back on deck now and I am going to try to catch up with all things bloggy!

So, to start with, I am announcing the themes for 2016.  Thanks for all of the great suggestions, I have tried to make them broad enough to incorporate everyone's preferences.

January - Music 

This could include carol singers, musical notes or musical words

February - Snow

Think snowflakes, snowmen or wintry scenes

March - Santa and his helpers

This includes Mrs Santa, elves, Rupert the red-nosed reindeer, whoever you like

April - Ornaments/decorations

Lots of options here: ornies, candy canes, baubles, snowglobes, wreaths, candles, flowers, poinsettias

May - Reindeer

A very popular option

June - Christmas animals/pets

Dogs, cats, mice,  (reindeer?- lol!)

July - Free Choice

Whatever takes your fancy!

August - Christmas clothing

Mittens, stockings, Santa hats, can you think of anything else?

September - Christmas Food

Yum yum!  Puddings, cakes, gingerbread men and houses, candy canes, mince pies

October - Toys and presents

Let your imagination go wild: nutcrackers, toy soldiers, beautifully wrapped presents, etc.

November - Oh Christmas Tree!

Self-explanatory really

December - Angels/Nativity

Most appropriate theme for the Christmas month!

So, we should all have lots of fun with these themes next year, I think!

hugs, Kaye

Great themes. I'll be rummaging through my JCS back issues to see what fits.

And where I can shoe horn dragons in! Glad you are feeling better now.

I have been a bit absent too. Hopefully I can get back into it. I have an ide for my Xmas gifts and this could work/help me get them done

Oh great, I think I should find something for each month. I'll create a new folder for this SAL :))

Excellent idea, Brigid.

I'm having fun picking out which ornament to stitch for each month. I'll probably change my mind through the course of the year though :-)

I am a bit late Kaye / sorry for that ! There is one question from me! Can I join this blog with my own designs? However,I'd like to be added within this SAL too!

Thanks in advance :)
