I have FINALLY finished my "advent" calendar. Inspired from the mini catalog, (p.36). It just took me tons and tons of hours, and 3 days of working on it. I did go through and write all of the instructions as I went so that I can offer these at my technique class on Friday. I found the frame at Michael's in packs of 3. They are 12 1/2 x12 1/2, so just a touch bigger than I needed, but I think it worked out well. I now have 7 spots available for this class that will be offered sometime in November.
