Handmade Calendar

I'm so excited to share my latest project...



It's a handmade calendar made out of wool felt, different fabric scraps and hand embroidery. The actual calendar lines are done with a machine. I've completed four months so far. Each month hangs separately and can be framed afterwards. It's a slow project but I'm so happy with how it's turning out. Sometimes, I get so frustrated because what I set out to do isn't exactly what I end up with and never sees the light of day - but this one is definitely going well.


February: Valentines Day


November: Thanksgiving (turkey leg and cranberries)


April: Earth Day


March: First day of Spring

I'm hoping to get more than one set done, but unless I strap myself to my craft chair 24/7 or hire little santa elves - I'm not sure it's going to happen (at least before January 2008). Unless, my crafter-in-crime decides to hop on board and help me ;-)

Gotta go and work on the next month!
