Today, thanks to Country Bumpkin, I’m giving away two 2013 William Morris Appliqué calendars. For those of you who like quilts, who like Things-Morris, who are into textiles – you’ll love this calendar decorated with beautiful pictures from the William Morris in Appliqué collection from Michele Hill’s William Morris in Appliqué books. It’s the perfect calendar to hang in your sewing area, or anywhere else for that matter!
Comments are closed for this give-away! Thanks for participating!
The calendar is large and colorful. It’s the kind of calendar that hangs from a hole, so that the picture is above the monthly grid.
Every year, I use a hanging calendar like this to write appointments on it, check dates, and keep a clear, easy-to-find log of upcoming events, birthdays, and the like within reach. I can’t imagine living without a calendar of some sort, and it’s always a kind of ritual, finding just the right calendar to see me through the upcoming year.
The William Morris Calendar for 2013 definitely fulfills all the requirements that I look for in a calendar. I like a calendar that’s appealing to the eye, colorful, that induces daydreams, inspires me, or makes me laugh. There has to be something about the yearly calendar that speaks to me – after all, I have to live with it for 12 months!
Of course, the quilts and finished projects in this calendar are more than just appealing! I want them all! I want them hanging on my walls, covering my beds, folded on the sofa….
… but since it isn’t likely that this particular wish will ever come true, I will revel, instead, in the gorgeous photography that graces this calendar!
And there’s enough space on each monthly grid to make appointment notes, to mark birthdays and special events, and so forth.
The William Morris Appliqué calendar will make a perfect gift for yourself, for your sewing or quilting friends, for you needlework buddy or fellow guild members! And today, you have the opportunity to win one of two that I’m giving away.
