Here we are – almost October. I love going to my local quilt shops and seeing all the latest patterns and holiday-related fabrics. I get all excited about upcoming family parties and friends getting together, and then I make a list of who I want to make things for.
There are people in my life that don’t like a craft-type gift and wouldn’t appreciate the work involved in making one. And lucky for me, I’ve got plenty that like handmade (or is it homemade) gifts. I always include a note card in their present that says ‘when I care enough, I make it myself’. I just keep my fingers crossed that they don’t share these special gift tags with the folks for whom I buy store bought gifts.
Looking through quilt shop websites seeing what new fall patterns and fabrics are introduced this year, I ran across this picture. I had to share it. It’s a combo of the ‘man chair’ and the ‘non-quilting shopper’ that tags along and waits and waits for us. In this case, they waited just a little too long. Or maybe it’s just a Halloween display.
