The get together my son and DIL hosted yesterday for both extended families was fun.
The weather yesterday was perfect. A cold front came through with the rain the day before so the temps were like I remember the weather in my childhood being. I loved it.
My DIL is the best at picking out gifts for people. Her gifts are always perfect for the person she is buying them for and she generally gets them at a good bargain to boot. I wish I had that knack.
Someone gave me a good sized selection of decorator fabric samples years ago. I have considered making some kind of purses or something out of them, but they are too small to make anything very big. I found a pattern online, and free no less, for an organizer/wristlet/clutch with some pockets and several slots for credit cards. The outside uses two different materials. I found that it was the perfect size to fit the deco fabrics. I found enough that coordinated to make 7 and I had enough fabrics for the card slots and lining for all of them that coordinates beautifully. Can't wait to get started tomorrow.
