As a designer for the DMC Corp.,the embroidery thread company, I occasionally receive a “surprise” package from them. Today’s mail brought me an especially beautiful calendar along with Christmas greetings from the members of the staff I most often work with. One small problem…the entire calendar is written in French. Thanks to Google, I’ve had my mini French lesson for the day. ONE IDEA PER MONTH. Each month’s page features a project complete with instructions….all in French. So, if I can translate a couple of sentences per day, by the time next year’s calendar comes out, I’ll have this year’s all figured out. However, anyone who has ever held a needle and thread will totally enjoy the eye candy. Gorgeous needlework on every page.
