At one time you may have sung “No more pencils, no more books, no more teachers …” Remember? So, it is kind of crazy that years later we choose to decorate with those things that remind us of school days!
The September calendar starts with this sketch:
The month begins with a ruler twisted into the S. We used an adjusted irregular blanket stitch to make the ruler lines.
Now for the pencil tip – it’s not perfect, I know. But, seriously, if someone is looking that closely to the little pencil, there may be other issues we are dealing with. Know what I mean?
Everybody know that apples are required in every school room!
Here’s what you need for your September FLIP calendar:
Wool background: 8″ x 6″ dark green; also tan, yellow, red and brown – with a tiny triangle of white
Embroidery thread: tan, yellow, red
Embroidery stitches: stem, blanket
