These might look familiar

It may have taken a little longer than planned (thanks a lot, covid-19!) but 2021 calendars are finally available!

I didn't depart too far from past designs with this one. A floral theme was used for these and I tried to create flower designs that are broken up into smaller areas/pieces. That way they are easier to fill in with stitches (in my opinion). Of course, for those who would prefer to cover a larger area with whatever fill stitch they have chosen, it's always possible to just stitch right over those smaller details. As with any project I take on, I love to have lots of options so I can really customize it. So, I try to create kits that have that feature too.

This year, there are three colors available. I stitched up my example in a monochrome color scheme which I loved! For someone who is a little anxious about matching up colors and developing palettes, monochrome is the way to go!😀 Admittedly though, I could not help but be extremely curious about how a more dynamic color combination might look. Not to mention how these might look with the addition of beads or fancy flosses/threads. My hope is that customers will share some photos of some of their bold color and stitch choices. It's always so fun to see what everyone comes up with and I am always amazed at the creativity and skill shown in the finished projects.

As in past years, these kits come with a color and stitch guide (plus a link to additional content) and two skeins of DMC embroidery floss. The color of the floss matches the printed color on the calendar. Deciding what floss to include was tough this year. I know people are going to go in all kinds of different directions with these (which is great!) but I knew I could not realistically keep all the different possible combinations in stock.

You can check these kits out here and if you have any questions about these please don't hesitate to let me know, I am happy to help!
