When I was in “The Christmas Shoppe” Booth at Road to California I came to an abrupt stop when I spotted this wee baby quilt!
I HAD to have the pattern! I was like a Grandma possessed…give me THAT pattern!!
Under normal circumstances I would have looked at that price and walked away… $16.00 was WAY too much…BUT factor in the POSSESSED Grandma syndrome…and I knew I had to have it..It was just too dang cute to leave behind!! And the small piece of chenille to make the little lamb in the centre of the quilt…was an additional $7…GIVE IT TO ME…please!! (Even possessed you have to be polite!)
So yesterday I got out the fabric that I have been collecting and started this wee quilt…I was shocked at finding only 4 sheets of papers inside the pattern (5 if you include the cover)…this quilt is so simple that you don’t NEED a pattern to make it…the instructions could have been written on a 5X 7 card… But remember I WAS a Grandma’ Possessed…I couldn’t help myself! And granted there is the copyright issue…
Did they factor in the cuteness element when pricing this pattern or were they simply preying on the emotions of a Grandma? I think $10 or under would have been an appropriate and fair price for this pattern. I feel so…used! But dang if it’s not going to be cute!!
My question to all grandmas out there…is this going to happen often??
Am I going to become a POSSESSED Grandma every time I see something cute and irresistibly delicious…and to heck with the cost? Geeze…I hope not!! Maybe this was just a weak moment…:o)
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P
