Sew the Perfect Gift goes to…. Kathy in NC! Congratulations Kathy! I hope you enjoy the very cute projects in the book.

The first time I heard the following, I laughed so hard. Then I kind of got used to it as it happened a few more times. Passersby, especially men it seems, would look at a little quilt that I hang in my booth and say, “Hmm… Baked Potatoes.”

This is what they’re looking at:

Baked Potatoes or Plum Pudding: the Great Debate.

Baked Potatoes or Plum Pudding:
The Great Debate.

At my last show I heard a new one. A teenaged girl looked at one of my quilts and said, “Oh, Prairie Dogs.”

You be the judge.

You be the judge.

Until next time,
By Kay Mackenzie

    Congratulations to Kathy!
    Well, considering it has holly on it, I would assume plum pudding;) And if that does not look like a scotty dog, I don’t know what does, lol.

    I have no idea what Plum Pudding is supposed to look like. I have wondered for a long time.
