It is so great that we pass gradually through the well-worn cliche and the standard imitation. The home warmth, the coziness, the small delights and the good family traditions have come just at the right moment. And this is possible with help of needlework, or your skillful hands and your fantasy.

Dear Galina,

Another incredible calendar! Between your motherís artwork and your granddaughter compiling the 2019 edition, you must be so proud. As I read the poetry, it made me realize how the seasons transition so differently in your homeland.

Thank you so much.

Dear Galina,

Thank you for your wishes, holiday card and wonderful calendar, which arrived here 2 days ago. What a great idea to commemorate Pushkin's 220 birthday anniversary. It is hard to believe that you are creating those calendars for over 10 years already. As the previous ones,  this one too presents your Mom's beautiful artwork, which is complimented with great poetry. These special calendars are truly wonderful gifts that I enjoy a lot.

Dearest Galina,

Once again thank you for exquisite 2018 calendar. The needlework so perfectly complements the poetry of Osip Mandelstam. Know that I will spend time each month lost in thought about each!

Dear Galina,

Your calendar arrived here on Saturday. As always, it is beautiful and thank you very much for such dear gift. Your Mom's art work is so special and beautiful. The verses of poet Osip Mandelstam complement your Mom's art so perfectly. One expresses his feelings and beauty in words the other in her embroideries. I do not know if your Mom has ever met the poet but to me they are artists/soulmates.

You select such great/perfect verses and poets to create wonderful calendars in memory of your Mom. 2018 calendar with one poet only but how perfectly his verses are matching your Mom's art. And the poems in original language and English translations allow me to understand them better and practice my Russian too :-) Thank you my friend.
