I've followed monthly themes in the past, just for fun and to help me make my way through my diverse and vast stack of stash and WIPs. You can dedicate the whole month to the theme, or a week during the month, or weekends, or whatever you want! Just come join us and have fun...you can jump in whenever you like. We'll post on the first day of the month, to celebrate the past month's successes and share plans for the coming month. I'll host a Mr. Linky for that post so you can easily visit other Themers. Please use one of my banners on your posts, if you would, and link back to either this page or my current post.

This year things will work a little differently than in the past...only half the themes will be set at the beginning of the year, and the other months I will draw a theme that one of YOU has sent in! It's never too late to join or suggest a theme, so email me!
The holidays were a little stressful...let's relax in a nice garden. Work on any piece with flowers or gardens.
Fantastical Fiction February
What kind of fantasy creatures inhabit your Works in Progress? Or perhaps some fictional characters have leaped from the pages to your needles? Let's stitch on projects inspired by imagination.
Work on something different every day...it's madness...of the funnest possible kind.
What pieces can you find in your flood of WIPs that include water? Rivers, lakes, oceans, or rain (and anything that lives within).
Is it a zoo in your stack of WIPs? How many projects can you find that include animals or birds?
School's out for the summer! Let's work on things with sunshine in them or REALLY bright colors. Summer is here!
It's time to celebrate! What are you celebrating this year? Stitch on your holiday-related projects, OR find some WIPs you know you'll never finish and set them free.
Author! Author! August
The words are speaking this month! Hunt out those WIPs with a verse or two. It's time those projects with words and sentences grew.
Dip your needle into the vast swath of fabric dedicated to your BIGGEST projects!
Find a new-to-you designer and start a new project this month! Or maybe two...or three...
What can you make without making an X?? Blackwork, hardanger, embroidery, needlelace, and the list goes on! Don't panic...you can even backstitch for the month!
It's a Mystery...for now!
And now for the graphics!
The theme's afoot! Version:
Non-geeky, plain version (not that there's anything wrong with that):
