    Surprise For My Favorite Brother-in-Law

    Jim's younger brother Chris has given us so many cute Halloween and Christmas decorations over the years. Next time I go home for a visit, he wants to take me to Sleepy Hollow. I am going to spring this on him when I get there. It is all batiks, front and back. 78 1/2 X 61 1/2 inches. I hand quilted a simple leaf and vine pattern. Cannot wait to see his face when I give it to him. Don't mind the cat hairs. It will get washed before I give it to him.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
