Family Mosaic Quilt – Fabric Printing

As age and wisdom sneaks in each year, my sentiments towards gift-giving are becoming hard-core ‘Sheldon‘ous. Sans registries (a concept which I appreciate in theory but am wistfully thankful is not prevalent in India), on most occasions – I have absolutely NO clue what to gift anyone anymore.

Terrible at adopting newer technologies historically, I have always appreciated the convenience they bring. I love a Kindle with its light cover over actual books.
