12 Days of Christmas - Day 10

Homeland Army Block of the Month
Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas at Grandma's Attic! Every day from now until Christmas we will feature a different item from our quilt shop. You'll want to check the posts each day from now through the 24th to see what Grandma has for you this holiday season!

Day 10 of the12 Days of Christmas features 10 Pipers Piping. Pipers puts us in a Patriotic Mood--and what could be more patriotic than the Homeland Army Block of the Month Club. Members of this Block of the Month Club discover how World War I changed everything for women, and that life is different today because of the contributions made by heroic men and women during this time period. In this club, you discover how world events nearly 100 years ago continue to shape our lives today. Each month, you receive the fabric you need to create a 12" quilt block, plus an informational magazine and omnibus booklet. This is one information-packed club!

Twelve Days of Christmas Fun Fact: In the Middle Ages, the Twelve Days of Christmas was a period of continuous feasting and merrymaking. Traditional Roles were relaxed so that masters waited on their servants, men dressed as women, and women were allowed to dress as men!

To hire Ten Pipers Piping will cost you $239.56 each, for a total of $2,395.60. (We want to know why it's only $72.80 for one hour of maids milking, but drummers and pipers cost you so much more!)

Christmas Quote: "Never worry about the size of your Christmas Tree. In the eyes of children, they are all thirty feet tall." < Larry Wilde, Author & Humorist, 1928- >
