9 Lovely Needlework Calendars

, , Leave a comment

Needlework calendars have a beauty and permanence that paper calendars rarely achieve. Whether it’s cross-stitch, quilting, or embroidery, it’s difficult to throw away needlework, especially if the pattern is complex and painstakingly crafted.  Hence, if you expect a year to be wonderful, or if the past year was already wonderful,  stitching together a calendar can be a lovely way to memorialize it.
