Ok, I was gifted these really awesome calendars with huge pictures on them.  Vintage cats, awesome places in the world, birds and Japanese art.  I decided that this is what I wanted to do with them.

Fans made from the calendar pages.  The stiffener underneath is old record album covers and the edge is leftover yarn from some other person's projects (also gifted).

The front


the back


And my favorite, cypress trees somewhere in Florida


Hope you like them.

Great idea! I always wind up saving calendars with beautiful pics because I cannot bear to toss them.
I am also the queen of hot flashes, so this is a FAB project.
