Every year, around Thanksgiving, I start dog-earring the various pages of the quilting catalogs I receive. My hubby knows he can just grab one (or more) of the catalogs and order anything from the pages that are dog-earred and items that are marked. He decides how much to spend. The only thing this year, he kind of ordered late, so I haven't gotten my present yet. But, it's coming! Since I selected the items, I know it's something I'll need and use.
Happy New Year!
