August Wallpaper

Happy August!

We just wrapped up a Beach Craft-Along so I had swimming on the brain – and decided I needed to make a water buffalo for this month’s Ami Club pattern.

A water buffalo who can’t swim yet, so he needs a swim ring. πŸ™‚

I was so tickled with the results that I decided to make him this month’s calendar. πŸ™‚

(I named my water buffalo Walter after my grandfather. That’s why he has the super high-waisted swim trunks. That was the fashion in my grandpa’s day. πŸ™‚ You can, of course, switch to buffalo-colored yarn a few rows before I did if you want your buffalo to look a little more contemporary.)

Download your wallpaper below – there are options both with and without the August calendar.

If you want the Walter the Water Buffalo pattern, join Ami Club here. It’s just $4 a month and you’ll get immediate access to download the pattern.

Have a great month!

July 2019 Wallpaper

Happy July!

I had to use the Funny Faces Block of the Month pattern again this month because I just can’t get enough of that frog and his fabulous fly-catching tongue! He makes me smile every time I see him and that’s exactly what I want on my computer screen. πŸ™‚

June 2019 Wallpaper

Happy June!

I think this horse is my favorite version of this month’s Funny Faces Quilt Block of the Month Club pattern. He’s a horse of a different color! So, of course, I had to make him my calendar for this month.

April Wallpaper

free penguin calendar April 2019

Happy April!

I made a cute pink penguin for this month’s calendar. πŸ™‚

The pattern is Paxton Penguin – the current Funny Faces Quilt Block of the Month Club pattern.

The color palette is the Pretty Pinks fabric bundle. I like the colors so much that I think I’m going to use it for every month’s block pattern. I’ll end up with a pretty pink quilt with lots of different funny faces. πŸ™‚
