The image must be related to that month or something that would work. I have some ideas, but I want to know what you would want in a Skinnie. Check out my existing Skinnies

have 3-5 images per Skinnie, OK?

    1. James-
      Thanks for the comment. I'm not able to put my link onto The Quilting Community blog. Would you please do so for me. your email is not listed. Thanks for your help.

  8. After talking with you today I thought of a witch for October and then see that you don't need October. How about a chalkboard for September with an apple. How about a moose or an apple pie for fall. There is always a surf board for summer, candy apples for fall. There, now you have 8 comments. Karlene

  9. August: A speed boat or other beachy stuff. (Although I really like the hot air balloon idea someone posted earlier)
    September: A school bus with fall leaves
    November: A turkey or a bear in pilgram clothing
