Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

Theme-a-licous 2013

New year.. time for new themes from my dear geeky friend Heather! (I discovered Dr. Who this year, catching up on all the “reboot” seasons over the summer, so this graphic is just SO PERFECT!)

While I don’t think I hit every theme in 2012 (or didn’t post about it), I’m definitely in for another round.

I will be skipping the optional “ornament” rider, though.

Jardin January

The holidays were a little stressful…let’s relax in a nice garden. Work on any piece with flowers or gardens.

Given that I’m starting Jardin Prive’s Sampler Aux Bouquets tomorrow, I’ve got the first month covered!  Woot!


Figural February

Who are the people in your neighborhood…your WIP neighborhood, that is? Give your people-populated projects some face time this month.

March Madness

Work on something different every day…it’s madness…of the funnest possible kind.

Amazon April

Dip your needle into the vast swath of fabric dedicated to your BIGGEST projects!

Monochrome May

Pick a color, any color, then stitch only on projects that contain that color for the month!

Jumanji June

Is it a jungle out there in your stash? Give some love to the projects with animals or birds.

Jubilee July

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.

Airborne August

What’s that soaring through the air with the greatest of ease? It’s the things with wings on your WIPs!

Sampler September

Whether you’re stitching the alphabet over and over (and over), starting your own band (sampler), or marking some spots, this is your month!

Opulent October

It’s time to don your tiaras and bring the bling! Stitch on projects with sparkly fibers, beads or charms.

No-Xs November

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!

Detritus December

It’s the end of the year…are there some projects you thought you’d have done by now? Let’s take a walk down memory lane and start the new year with a clean plate.

  1. Wow, you only got into the reboot this year? Where have you been? 😉 I’m considering joining in the theme fun this coming year, but maybe not. I know I want to focus on stitching from my stash and stop accumulating more!
