    I was at Sam's today and got this for myself (I qualify, don't judge!) ;)

    It's a block and pattern-a-day calendar. It was $8.88. I though it was pretty neat.

    Had one of those on desk one year and it was fun to see all the blocks and patterns everyday.

    The trouble with those is that you can never throw them away!!!
    (at least not until the patterns have been tried)

    Wow I'd be judged to death if it was for buying for myself! I buy for myself all the time. I went Christmas shopping and came home with more presents for me then for those I went shopping for. DH does the same thing. Our kids have to settle for room, medical, education, transportation, and food. Poor kids. LOL.

    Fantastic. My husband bought me a 2009 calendar with a cross-stitch pattern a day...haven't done any for a while, but Barbara's right you can't possibly throw them away!

    We have a gift exchange with our Friendship Group and I was lucky enough to get one. I can't wait for January (yes I can but ask me on Boxing Day - the day after Christmas)

    Was that for just the calendar, the companion CD or what? Great price by the way. I couldn't find it any cheaper if it's just the calendar.

    The quilt block calendar I have does not have a year or day name so I have been using it for two years now. Still not tired of it so am going for the third!

    I got one of these last year - I'll have to dig it out to see if it has the day and year on it. If not, I could use it again! :P

    I love your hulahoop site. I did these sometime past and gave all my family two that were made in the wicker picnic plate holders and put loops on the back. I called them my calico pie hot pads. Everyone loveds them. I made a few more hoping to sell them but I never know for what to sell anything I make. When I see some of the crafts, they seem awfully expensive, but then you put a lot of labor in these things and they are divine. oh, yeah, Merry Christmas, everyone, hugz Ruthie

    All this talk about quilt calendars made me look for the quilt calendar I got so many years ago the pages are yellowed and crackly...I'm sure it's 30 years old if it's a day. I wasn't a quilter and didn't think I would ever care for the hobby but when I got it from a friend who was a quilter I think she KNEW that there was a quilter in me somewhere just screaming to be turned loose in a fabric store! I'm hooked! In looking at the patterns in the calendar, I find some I've done and many I think I might do. My friend is older now, can no longer quilt or sew but she still loves to haunt the fabric dept. at WalMart with me. Maybe I'll make a sampler quilt out of the blocks in the calendar and give it and the calendar back to her! Wish I had found this thread a little sooner, I'd of tried to get the quilt made for Christmas! Thanks for the ideas. Enjoy your calendars and the patterns.

    Special Sister gave me one a couple years ago. I thought I might make some, but have not. Not sure the patterns are clear and looks like cutting each piece = not wanting to do that - I have a trusty rotary cutter. Merry Christmas all!!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
