Year in Stitches 2014 Calendar Kit

Year in Stitches Calendar Kit
2013 has been flying by quickly, so it doesn’t seem crazy to start thinking about 2014 calendars. While I usually fall into the camp that uses a simple (but HUGE) plain calendar from Staples (more space for writing), I always fall for these small design-oriented calendars that have interesting details and fun themes. This sweet calendar from Heather Lins was inspired by cross stitch samplers. She’s arranged the letters for each month so that the user can stitch something new onto the actual calendar paper every time it’s time to turn a page. All you do is poke through the paper with the needle provided and stitch away to decorate that month’s page- no sewing experience needed. I love the idea of using these as a little warm-up practice for learning to cross-stitch. Each page becomes a little sampler and would be so sweet to frame as a celebration of your new skill.
