Another Birthday Gift

My friend, Maggy, is having a birthday on January 20th. Here is a little gift I made for her.

The pocket calendar pattern is from Drawn Thread and done on 32ct natural raw linen.

Happy Birthday, Maggy! May you be blessed in this New Year with Laughter and Joy.

Amities, Averyclaire

    What a sweet little gift. Those kind of calendars are probably not long for this all digital world. But I still like them and with that cover — priceless!

    What a delicate work. You are a cross stitching queen! And your final work is perfect. I love the choice of the inside fabric.

    What a lovely gift! I prefer to physically write down dates, rather than using a computer program, so I really like this idea.
