I am a calender Girl!!!......

Not that kind of Calendar, tut,tut!
.................................................
You may remember waaaayyyy back in January I had an email from an editor in America enquiring about using one of my tutorials in a sewing calender. I emailed her back, took some new pictures etc and then forgot about it.

Whilst changing our calendar from July to August I remembered the email and enquired if my tutorial had in fact been used. It has!!!!!

I have been sent a complimentary copy which arrived here on Saturday morning, a little bashed about but never mind.



The lid is held down with covered magnets built into the box edges. When you open it there are explanation pages and a contents section. There are over a 100 projects to choose from.

The editor saw my juggle bag tutorial on my blog and asked if it could be used. It appears in October 11th/12th/13th days. They used the newer pictures that I took which do look much better, lighter as I took these ones outside.

The lid folds round so that the box can sit up.

Each project has a sheet of instructions which opens up to 8.5" x 11" which I think is about A5. This certainly a calendar worth keeping during the year but also once the year has ended.

This is available on Amazon and I think at a reduced price at the moment. I do not get any finical gain from this project. There are several other bloggers whose work features too such as Amy @ Lucykatecrafts and Rachel @ rachelrabbit. There are other bloggers whose projects I recognise from surfing the Internet. An original idea and I have seen other calendars too, there is one for Knitting and Crochet too. Only my hubby knew about this being in the pipeline in case nothing came of it and I have been busting to tell!

WIP: I am cutting up loads of strips for the Christmas Swap Quilt Block that I have signed up for. A package arrived from one of my swap group members this morning so I had better get a move on. Hopefully I will have something to show you on this tomorrow as it is linked with a particular tutorial that you may like to try. I will include the link as well.

I will then move onto launching my Christmas Swap for this year, a different theme this time. Having problems with the swap button again but I will get there.

I have a friend calling in for lunch tomorrow so a bit of housework is called for....but maybe I could get that fabric cut up first....yes?

Bye xx
