My great-gran had a whole set of these mugs when I was a wee one, all hung off hooks along one wall of her kitchen.  I'm currently trying to find out more about them so I can collect the whole set (I think they were some sort of magazine thing where you order one a month or something), and I also want to make some complimentary stuff for the kitchen to go with.

I'd love to embroider some teatowels, wall hangings and other stuff to go in our kitchen with the images from these - has anyone seen the images printed flat on anything?  It'd make it way easier to work from, I could directly trace the images instead of trying to hand-draw my own (inevitably flawed) versions.  Also, a flat image would let me convert to a x-stitch pattern to get the required thread colours.

I'd appreciate any help you guys could offer...

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I've seen ones similar that are on those linen year wall hangings that used to be popular in the 60's and 70's. Maybe check ebay or etsy for vintage calendar wall hanging and see what it brings up. Good luck!

Ooh, I've never heard of that!  I'll give that a try, thanks!
