Description: A fat-quarter-sized calendar for 2012 with each month bordered by celtic knotwork. A fat-quarter-sized calendar for 2012 with each month bordered by celtic knotwork. On the wider fabric widths, eg sateen, knit and linen, you also get celtic knotwork numerals for the year at the top of the calendar.

The days of the week are marked with their astrological/alchemical planetary symbols, as per their Greek / Roman / Norse mythology names, rather than initial letters or words applicable to just one European language. The highlighted holidays (ie holy days) are currently set as the 2 solstices, the 2 equinoxes and the other 4 primary celebration days in the 8-fold pagan calendar.

In this version, only a single design of knotwork is used for every month but the colours of its strands and the tiny decoration details embedded within it both vary with (rather eurocentric) seasonal vegetation, weather and assorted holidays from multiple traditions. Snowflakes fall in January; February is marked with symbolic hearts; March holds both daffodils and shamrocks; April hides the Easter eggs; May is full of apple / cherry / bramble / hawthorn blossom; June owns the solstice sun; dolphins cavort around in July; the grape harvest (lammas) is in August; leaves start to fall in September; skulls for halloween or the day of the dead are in October; bats flit between the bare branches of November; December (yule) features holly and ivy.

sef says: The rest of the tiny images embedded in the knotwork (and a few of the extra ones I stuck on the file to test) came out really well on the whole (and I've adjusted the ones where the colour was too pale to show up on that scale). Spoonflower's printing resolution is pretty good on the quilting cotton. The big weekday symbols were always going to work and the knotwork itself had been pre-tested.

sef says: There's less I can do about the months, since they no longer match up with the astrological zodiac ones. Though I did consider putting the closest ancient constellation symbol as the decoration in each of those, eg Aries is predominantly in April despite currently starting at the end of March.
