We had some great suggestions for new themes for 2016 and as ever it was quite hard to choose. The favourites from this year are Black Cats, Pumpkins and Ghosts so they will all feature next year. I also amalgamated some categories into one (Bats and Owls have become Winged Creatures). I have included two free months so you can stitch your choice even if it didn't make the list this year.
So here are the themes for 2016:
(Bats, Owls, Crows and Ravens etc)
April - Ghosts
May - Spiders and Bugs
June - Free Choice
July - Witches' Accessories
(things like brooms, hats, boots, cauldrons etc)
August - Spooky Words
September - Bad Fairies and Wicked Queens
October - Black Cats
November - Skeletons and Skulls
(including Sugar Skulls and Day of the Dead themes)
December - Free Choice
I also have a larger piece which features many of the themes so I'll be showing that too.
Lisa had a great idea of theming the months according to the alphabet. We thought this would fit in very well with The Alphabet Club posts. I have done A-D so far and December's will be E. So if you have any spooky stitching which fits in with the letter E please email me a picture before the 1st December. It could be a designer beginning with E or a design title beginning with E or an E feautured in the design (Spooky Elephant anyone?).
Just to finish off a wordy post, here is Trixie The Hallowe'en Witch from Brooke's Books looking very elegant:
