Done, made, finished! Well...kind of... I can see plenty of adding, removing, changing... but that's the sort of thing I like. An outgoing process, ever changing, never quite finished.
I used the lovely wool felt that gentlytiptoegave me ages ago, a Linum table runner (which was the inspiration for the color scheme), some vintage fabric (Thanks to my great local charity shops) and old buttons (some lovely glass ones are some of my favourites). Did I mention I started it last year? I certainly did and it was going to be quite different to how's turned out, but I'm kind of pleased. Here are some close-ups:
And this is the entire calendar. Sorry about the flamenco dancer, nothing to do with it. She just happens to live there the rest of the year.
By the way, the filled pockets ( a mixture of tiny toys, cute finds and sweets) had to be emptied as a certain very impatient little girl couldn't cope with the day to day waiting when she first saw it.
This is the first time I've seen Ana drawing anything vaguely human so I was very excited to catch her doing it. When asked she said it was a "prinsenita" which it's her own Spanish word for "princess". Princesses are a big theme around here at the moment. Not one I would go for myself but she is totally obsessed by them. Don't know where this comes from as she's never read or watched anything about them with us. I blame those young carers at the nursery!
