Plod, plod, plod

I promised my mom that I would make her a calendar. It's now January 6, and it's still not done. Classes don't start for another two weeks and I'm already falling behind. Eeek! I'm looking for motivation- I usually can find it with Unity's Friends with Flair Fridays.

Luckily, I saw this sketch challenge at Chick Challenges. I don't normally combine challenges. Is there such a thing as challenge karma?



My daughter and I went to the Friends of the Library used book sale- she wanted reading material and I wanted some cheap books to destroy. The background and flower are Beatrix Potter's Tale of Peter Rabbit. I used this {ippity} stamp to paper piece it-it's awesome for piecing! The button is from Basic Grey, twine and cardstock are from PTI, and I used my Cricut to cut the letters.

Three months left. What to do, what to do?

I don't normally combine challenges either. Yep, I think there is karma. But, I also did it this time! Love the calendar idea!
