the Calendar

Look what's hanging on my wall!

on my wall!

The new year is almost here, so I figured there's no harm in switching out my old calendar for this shiny new one.  January is one of my favorite photos ever!  And now is the time of year where I pack away our Christmas quilt and pull out beloved Colorbrick, my very first quilt, for our couch.  Said couch, which by the way, I've realized really needs some new cushions.  Where is my list of 2013 projects?  Best start that soon.

As promised, here are some photos of the actual calendar.  I decided I like the one with the bowl of pearl on the cover the best.  But, both versions are available for order at Redbubble.

I took a few shots at my table.

And just generally enjoying the view.

If you find yourself sadly lacking in the calendar department, I can definitely recommend the Redbubble ones.  I loved the way the dates are directly below the image, with the wire ring at top for sturdy hanging.  It works real well!  The paper and print quality are delightful.  You can visit Redbubble to see all the images inside and the pretty collage on back.

Happy New Year!

  1. Love the calendar. Where do you get your pearl thread? Do you mind telling?

    1. I get some of mine from a local yarn shop and some via Anna Maria Horner's boxed sets. But, I can recommend a few spots online: Pink Castle Fabrics, Sew Modern and Mad About Patchwork in Canada.

  6. I bought one of these calendars as well. Great quality. However, I wish I knew they put the file names of the photos on the lower right of the dates so I could have named properly. Also, too bad you can't add memos on the dates, but I hear they are working on it! The pictures you chose are wonderful!
