December - Bits 'n' Pieces - End of year where we can use up all the scraps we have accumulated throughout the year and also finish off bits and pieces (projects/squares) that fell by the wayside during the year.
CoM - Red. Patricia
Please remember that PJ squares are so important when creating our blankets, so even if you think a theme is 'not for you' solid colour squares representative of that theme will ALWAYS be very much appreciated. Thank you.
Thank you, Patricia for putting up your hand for December, always a busy and challenging month to volunteer for.
Thank you, Glo for volunteering to host February. Which theme would you like to host?
Thank you, Amy, Karen and Rebecca for also volunteering to host. Please pick a month and theme, the list above is not in any monthly order, except December, Bits and Pieces.
We will have a few gaps to fill. If you have never hosted and feel you would like to, please feel free. We will support you in any queries you might have.
I love your lineup, Bev. Good job, well done!!! Thank you ❤
I was digging through my stash(es) the other day and realized that most of my yarn is variegated! So ... unless someone else has designs on it, I will choose Vivacious Varigateds, Stupendous Stripes, Dazzling Diagonals for February ... xo
I'm happy to do June as well as December (if needed) and my choice for that would be Like Night and Day, but if that's someone else's first choice I can change.
Thanks so much, Patricia....that would be brilliant!!
Hiya,...... I'll do March...... + Educate Me..... , Colour BLUE please. I could host a second time, but will hold back for now to see how other folk offer, Kx. Well done Bev ❤️
Just give me anything, any month... I will try to make it work.
With that attitude I think you're the member every committee everywhere would welcome with open arms, Amy! Such a trooper.
Thanks so much, Ladies, for your prompt replies. BIG thank you to Karen and Patricia offering to host two if needed....I may need to take you up on that. :))
Amy, how would May for Under an African Sky work for you? ....or On the Move?
May is fine...I can work anything now that stripes is taken. I am not so good with stripes.
I have hosted both themes before so I have a head start...
Thanks Amy. I picked those two, as I knew that you had hosted them before and thought familiarity might encourage your creative juices. :))
I might put you down for Under an African Sky, then??? Thank you. :))
