August 2012 Desktop Calendar

So about a week ago, Marija Vujcic, a fellow-EQ7-user posted that she'd designed a couple of wreath blocks in EQ and put them on her blog, Marija's Fabric Creations. I'm nosey, so I checked it out. Loved the wreath she made with them. And the other alternate design ideas were cute too. Then I noticed that they were basically log cabin-variations.

Ding-ding. Lightbulb moment! I could save myself some time and effort if I stole - I mean borrowed Marija's wreath quilt to use as my desktop calendar. Not that I mind the time it takes to work up my desktop calendar every month, and not that you're not worth the effort, but really, it's so much easier when someone else does the work!

So I emailed Marija and asked if it would be ok to use her design on the August calendar, and she graciously said yes. So here it is! I changed it up a little so I could at least pretend that I had some input. Yes, I may be prone to slackerhood, but I'm not a total slacker...
Click on the calendar to expand the image to full size, then right-click and choose Set as Wallpaper or Background. To really jazz up your desktop, right-click on your background and choose a color that coordinates with the calendar - or do like I do, and set your background color to black. It goes with everything and really makes the colors pop! And when your friends say, "Where did you get that?" Send them to see me!

And a big thank you to Marija and Marija's Fabric Creations!

Woo-hoo!! Feel so honored to be a part of your wonderful calendar series - thank you! :) The variation you made looks really beautiful! I am off to share this with my Guild (I am the co-editor of that blog too) and my Facebook friends...Thanks again!

You're not a slacker you just know how to spot a good thing when you see it and save valuable time. ;o)
