I got another Country Calendar BOM block done! I still need to do March. I haven’t decided what background fabric to use yet, so I went ahead and did April’s.
I may get in over my head – I think I may just do ANOTHER BOM this year! And this second one surprises me, as it wouldn’t typically fall into a “me” style or category. January’s is just so cute, though!
I found this super cute BOM online. The girl that makes it is about my age and Dutch. Her blog is in both Dutch and English, and she makes super cute stuff. The instructions/patterns are in English. I’m using fusible for the applique but doing hand embroidery for each one.

I am going to use a little white in every month, so I can use white sashing to tie them together. That’ll also give me leeway to have fun with the background fabrics!
The January is done in orange floss that matches the nose. You can’t really see the detail on the buttons, but if you go look at the pattern you can see what it looks like there.
February. Outer heart stitched in pink, inner heart stitched in white.
