Thanksgiving will be here in just about a week and a half . Once we devour turkey, mashed potatoes and all the Thanksgiving fixings it will time for the self-induced tryptophan coma. We eventually need to revive ourselves and return to reality which will have us joining the hustle and bustle of the December season. The month of December is about giving; giving gifts for teachers, family and friends. We spend endless hours searching and selecting that special item for all those on our list that expresses the sentiment “Happy Holidays, I have this well thought out gift for you”, and inwardly we have the thought of “Moreover, I am thrilled I didn’t break the bank finding the perfect gift”. We desperately try to make the holidays a win-win for both those giving and those receiving!
The internet has made it extremely easy to click a few buttons, fill your virtual cart and then in a mere minutes those on your “to buy for” list can be eliminated. However, being in the quilting world I know many of us out there are going full steam ahead trying to put the final touches on our homemade gifts to those we love.
So now that the clock is ticking and we will be, if we aren’t are already, hard pressed to get our holiday plans in order; I am intrigued to hear what your holiday gift giving items include. Are you still in the throes of finishing a quilting project to be wrapped as a christmas present? If you do enjoy sharing your quilting projects this time of year are they table top runners, tuffets or placemats? Or is there something else specific you create to share? Maybe you choose not to give anything related to quilting as a gift during this time of year? Please let me know, and trust me it is quite alright to leave a comment such as “Oh Lisa I haven’t even thought about the month of December”. It would nice to have someone relieve a little bit of my procrastinating guilt!
