Theme brainstorming

Post by Dunners » Mon Mar 29, 2010 8:34 pm

Thoughts?

Obviously Easter is an event for April, though we don't have to have it as a theme there are lots of opportunities for other craftyness (e.g. photos!)

Do we go for something else/as well, maybe a random one-word, like a colour (e.g. "blue")? or ?

I like the winter prep idea, but is it too limited to just making clothes? Oh and knitting I guess..
I'm happy to go with that anyway since I'll be doing it theme or not ;) I have 2 more merino tops cut ready to sew, and more merino on the way :oops: and me and my friend are having a trackpants making party next week lol, gonna make us some styling trackies based on our comfy pjs pants lol.
