    Now this took some time to construct but I'm so happy with the results! I cannot believe that we're heading into April so quickly as it feels like we all just stopped stitching Christmas.

    I created this calendar EARLY so I could have a design to give as gifts this Christmas for 2012. I love it's beauty. This subject is quilting and I want to make a few more in different themes. What do you suggest?

    Awestruck! That is really pretty! The kitty and quilt theme is purrfect!

    What other themes are you doing? If you don't mind me asking?

    Just to throw out a couple of theme ideas out there:

    Wedding or baby themes would make a nice keepsake for a wedding/shower gift. Any kind of milestone for keepsakes.

    I personally would like to see a fishing theme. We fish for walleye and perch from April thru October. Are you selling these?

    From the designing up to the test completion, it took 30 days. It takes about a week to stitch the entire calendar from the ground up. (Day time working hours). Thank you much for your kind words! It truly is fun to stitch.

    YAY!! Some ideas for a creative blocked artist. LOL!! I've been caring for my elderly parents one of which has cancer, and I've just got back to the designing I love. To make a wedding one for the first year of marriage would be a treat! Same for a baby...

    On my profile is a link to my website. I want to create as many different calendars as I can. These take about one week to stitch but I'm so hooked! Ha!

    What a fantastic idea!

    It's amazing how many people love combining quilting and embroidery, and you've shown a wonderful way to think about both at the same time! Love it!

    Thank you! I've grown to believe, in my quilting, that ME (Machine Embroidery) is a must for a great embellished piece.

    I Love the Calendar. Did you design and digitize it all yourself? You did a VERY creative/professional job. I love to quilt and embroider as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Jill! Pleased to meet you. Yes. I am a 35 year graphic artist and illustrator. I take my designs and digitize them for machine embroidery. All the work you will see is original from my hand.

    Thank you! I cannot stitch in my studio without my 3 kitties getting involved. It's been a HOOT through the years and that's why my firm is named "Kitty Kitty Designs".
