It is that time again! Time to start thinking about our themes for next year, so if you have anything you are really keen to stitch, now is the time to suggest the theme.
I am thinking of running two alternate themes for next year.
I have been chatting to the lovely Jo, one of the stalwarts of this blog and my inspiration for starting it, with her Hallowe'en Ornie SAL. Anyway, we were having an email chat, as you do (since I live in Australia and she lives in England) and we were both saying how much we love stitching 1. Pieces with a theme and 2. The Twelve Days of Christmas. So, I said, how about we do that for a theme next year with an alternate set of themes for those of us who may not want to commit to a Twelve Days of Christmas stitch. And if you wish, you could dip in and out of either theme.
So, I am thinking we will have:
Theme One: THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS.....
- 4 Calling Birds
- 5 Gold Rings
- 6 Geese a-Laying
- 7 Swans a-Swimming
- 8 Maids a-Milking
- 9 Ladies Dancing
- 10 Lords a-Leaping
- 11 Pipers Piping
- 12 Drummers Drumming
- There are so many different designs out there on this theme - I just did a quick Google search and look at all of these:
Theme Two will be a variety, just as we had this year (and there is no reason we cannot use some of the same ideas again). So, get your Santa hats on and start sending through some choices to me!
If we have more than twelve ideas for Theme 2, then I will set up a little poll.
HO! HO! HO!
