September 2008 Calendar

Here is my finish of September 2008 Calendar.  I chose to use coloured fabric for the background instead of stitching all of it and I think it looks good.  Of course, my camera, being what it does, did not pick up the colour of the cloth which is a couple of shades lighter than the DMC 964 stitched for the bottom blue stitches.  Also I had to change all the colours of the design into DMC, since I only have a small assortment of Anchor threads, mostly for Tatty Teddy designs.  I really enjoyed stitching this little cute hedgehog and am starting October already which I am doing on a yellow aida for the background.  It really does quicken the finish.  Some day, after completing I hope to make the whole calendar into a quilt.   :)
