As you know, I’ve jumped head first into this embroidery design thing with my BFF Katie Canavan over at our new site Red Letter Day Stitches. Today we launch our first paid for pattern, the 2014 calendar! It sets up all 12 of the designs we have lined up for holidays in 2014. I’m so excited to share it with you!

2014 Calendar: What better way to celebrate the new year than with a fresh calendar? This stitched calendar not only looks pretty, but it incorporates little peeks into our full year of designs for 2014! Sure, you’ll get a workout on those french knots, but the final result is a piece that can hang in your home for the whole year.

2014 Looking GOOD!
