Quilter's Shirtless Man and Spicy Burrito 2013 Calendar
I was procrastinating getting a calendar like I always do, but finally ordered one yesterday. This summer I stumbled across a calendar that Megan at The Bitchy Stitcher put together in 2012 to raise funds to help her brother's family with some medical bills accrued from her brother fighting brain cancer. So the reason this is in existence is sad and touching, and the calendar itself is silly and awesome. She put together another one for 2013, many quilters were kind enough to send in pictures of the men in their lives posing shirtless with quilts and burritos (that's right, take a good look at your husband, could he be the next Mr. October?). I can't think of a better choice for keeping track of sew and quilt alongs! I like quilts, I like men, and I am rather partial to burritos (though not on the spicy side).
My purchase was through her link to lulu.com, but I see that Equilter.com also carries it, which means there's probably some other fabric stores to buy it from too. Gives you an excuse to buy some fabric while you're at it. Anyway, I can't wait to get my copy, and if you have a quilter on your Christmas list and need a last minute gift, I'm not sure you can go wrong with this!
note: My husband and I use different calendars, so he wont be forced to stare at bare chests all day. Although now that I think about it, it would be pretty funny for him to have to look up his dentist appointments on this ;)
