Bev, you and the others did a wonderful job on this list.  Lots of inspiration for a beautiful year ahead.

Bev....a wonderful line up for 2018...thanks to Chris for creating the Love Umbrella.  :))

I love the picture you have used to illustrate the LOVE umbrella Bev. The line up of themes for 2018 looks great and it is so nice to see some new hosts :))

Bev, thank you for gathering all these wonderful themes and lining them up with hosts.  A great job well done!!  It will be another fun year with lots of warmth created with love for the children.

I love that umbrella, Chris.  So appropriate for the year and beyond ... xo

Thank you, Bev - a really inspiring list, and I love the 'illustrations.'  (Um ... September ... is it too soon to panic??)

Oh Lesley, you don't need to panic.  Have a great time creating your intro and coming up with ideas.  Once September arrives you will be having so much fun you won't remember to panic :)  ... xo

You're panicking, Lesley??? February is juuuuust around the corner and I have no thoughts thus far on what I will be doing.....lol. 

I hear you.......the anticipation/trepidation of a first time hosting can be a teeny weeny bit daunting (an understatement, perhaps?).......but just remember, we are here to assist if needed and we are very thankful to have you host.  :)) 

Thank you Ladies....I think its going to be a fun year!!

I already have my 'Christmas' yarn from the UK, with some yarn for two of the themes. Soooo hoping to have more time to knit next year.

Gloria, it's the thought of creating the intro that's causing the panic - I already have lots of ideas, just don't know how to put them together!

Gloria, it's the thought of creating the intro that's causing the panic - I have lots of ideas, just don't know how to put them together!

Bev, I'll certainly be asking for help!

Oops, don't know how I managed to post this twice - doesn't bode well for doing something more technically challenging :))

Lesley, I can assure you the mods will come to your rescue if you need help, just ask.  I have needed soooo much support with posting stuff on the forum, I think I've driven Linda, Sharon, Glo and others round the bend with my lack of techy skills.....lol.  

Thanks, Louise, that's reassuring - I think :))
