Imagine this.  It's afternoon.  Your child is bored.  You place on the table this adorable chalkboard placemat that you just made.  Beside it you set several pieces of chalk.  You then tell your child to sit down and you will get him some milk and cookies.  Your child smiles with delight.  His eyes light up.  His chubby little fingers wrap around the white stick of chalk as he sits down and goes to work.

Silence fills the room.  No more whining.  No more getting into mischief.  No more talking at the top of his lungs.  There is only the light scratch of chalk against fabric as your child becomes creative.

You stand in the kitchen and watch as your child draws on his chalkboard placemat.  "That's a cow." he says.

Secretly  you are thrilled he told you and didn't ask.  You take a deep soothing breath and your stress level lowers.  Now you can get some things done while your child eats a cookie and makes chalk drawings on his new chalkboard placemat.

You can get this chalkboard fabric at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Make one for each of your children or grand children. What a great idea.  What a joy it will be for them to receive an unexpected gift.

There are a multitude of things you can do with this new chalkboard fabric.  Treat yourself  TODAY and get your mind off these rainy days.  Go shopping at the Attic Window Quilt Shop!
