12 Days of Christmas - Day 6

Fabulous Fabric Packs
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 6 of the 12 Days of Christmas is all about those Six Geese A-Laying. Six geese, while lovely to look at, would probably ruin your backyard in no time flat. Instead, we've got bundles of six fun fat quarters at Super Holiday Savings. Our Fabulous Fabric Packs are great for stocking up your stash. All fabrics are 100%, high quality cotton. If you order more than one fabric packet in the same colorway, we'll make sure you get packets containing different prints. These are definitely a fun treat for yourself or a gift for your favorite quilter, fabric artist, or crafter! To order, click here.

12 Days of Christmas Fun Fact:  One way to interpret the lyrics of this song is that on each new day, all of the gifts that were previously given by "my true love" are given again! This would make the total number of gifts (counting 12 partridges, 22 turtle doves, etc.) equal to 364 gifts in all, one fewer than the number of days in a full year. However, there are 376 gifts total if you count the pear tree as a separate gift aside from the partridge itself. It is interesting to note that 184 of the gifts are birds.

Six geese a-laying, according to the 2013 PNC Christmas index, will cost you $35 each, for a total of $210 in all.

Christmas Quote:  "My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?" < Bob Hope, Comedian/Entertainer, 1903-2003 >
