My regular readers (all 9 of you) may be aware that I have participated in the QSMASBC (Quilter's Shirtless Men and a Spicy Burrito Calendar) since its inception.
In fact, Mark was not only "Mr. October", but also the calendar cover model for 2012. He is displaying a quilt that he designed and made.
Oh, the funny looks we got while shooting this! It's not every day there's a "naked" man holding a burrito and a quilt in a cornfield in Central Pennsylvania!
BUT, the October pose was so popular that at some quilt shops, it was repeated as a "costume" for Halloween! They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
In 2013, he became Mr. April. On display this year is a quilt that his mother made for him.
We're going for a THREE-peat this year.
If you'd like more details, perhaps even getting your sweetie to join in the fun, read the "rules" at The Bitchy Stitcher - Quilters Shirtless Men and a Spicy Burrito Calendar 2014
And, even if you don't participate in the calendar creation, please consider purchasing the calendar. There's lots of eye candy -- quilts, men and burritos (if that's your choice).
The calendars make great gifts!
