We must not forget that there is still 6-7 weeks of 2015 (let's not wish our lives away...lol), but this list is for those of you who like to plan ahead....and it may also prove useful for giving hints to friends and family for 'yarn pressies' for Christmas. :))

Nature, gardens, the four seasons, etc.
2. February - Celebrating Africa - Bev
Madiba, flags/flag colours, animals, all things African.

Squares of any kind, with boys in mind.
4. April - Count me in - Anne

Please remember that 'Plain Jane' squares are so very important, as they can give a fabulous punch of colour or provide vital contrast in each and every blanket. In 2016 our aim is to brighten the lives of the children through our beautiful squares.....so let's COLOUR THEIR WORLD !!!

I wish to thank EVERYONE who put forward suggestions for 2016. I think we have incorporated, if not all, at least as many suggestions as we possibly could. Your suggestion may not be included in a theme title, but rather in the idea/s behind a theme.
Thanks Bev! What a terrific and exciting lineup for the coming year. xo
You're welcome, Susanne.....I hope we see some frogs....in January, perhaps?....or April?
I look forward to seeing your contributions to the themes. :))
