WOW = Thank You Lucia

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
 
What's the first thing you do when you see a calendar?
I always flip to my birthday month to see what the picture is!
 
Lucia Martins of Brazil kindly sent me this beautiful calendar which she and a group of ladies taking embrodiery class together, created to represent scenes of their city. It's a beautiful calendar and I'm very happy to have it hanging in my kitchen. Thank you Lucia for thinking of me!
 
I think photos of sewing, quilting and embroidery never do the real work justice, but this calendar shows up some stunning detail and I love the idea behind it too.
 
Lucia worked on April (her birthday)
 
 
and this is the November scene (my birthday)
 
 
Here's the back of the calendar:
 
What is it about receiving something in the post that makes it extra special?
 
What's Your WOW ?
