Keeping Track

To mark my time away from home, I constructed this leaf calendar. It's just five different leaf designs printed randomly alternating autumn-like colored cardstock sewn onto another piece of cardstock. For the earliest days of autumn, I made the stitches very close together, so it's a bit of an effort to rip off each leaf day. But by the end of autumn, the stitches are further apart, so the the leaves can be plucked and fall much more effortlessly, since leaves fall faster/easier as the weather turns.
