This month I created the very first page of the calendar - May! I had the initial idea in January, but Spring really kick started the plan, so I will be stitching in real time from May 2019 - April 2020, doing a page per month. Hence why it's a 2021 calendar!
I am very slowly working towards a hand embroidered calendar for 2021, creating each page month-by-month in real time. Not only will each page be filled with hand embroidered illustrations of the wild flowers in season that month, it will also show information on sunrise and sunset times, the moon phases, and other details of seasonal change. My hope is to photograph each hand embroidered page to eventually produce a printed version of the calendar that can be hung on your wall, your fridge or the back of a door to prompt mindfulness of your surroundings and maybe encourage us all to put our phones down and go outside.
