Lap quilt for the cold
A lap quilt is often used by people who are made fun of. Not because they are strange, but because they are cold. Those people who always have a blanket or another lying around in their house to put on their lap in those cold, drafty winter days. Those people who like to be comfortable and warm. Some people find that funny.
But I am not one of them! I completely understand the always cold people (I am one of you).
Maybe those people don’t laugh at us being cold, but at the blanket we are using?
Maybe the scorn of other people is understandable when the blanket we use is common, plain or boring?
Maybe the best thing to do is to make a lap quilt yourself so awesome and beautiful that those people will be jealous they are not cold!
Yes, this sounds like a good plan.
