Today is the annual Christmas Tea here but I chose not to go. I guess it is a big event here for most of the ladies where they all dress up in their finest but it is not my 'thing'. I guess they get written up in the local newspaper. They will decorate the tables and use their finest china and eat lots of sweets and tiny sandwiches. Again, not my 'thing'. Nothing healthy on their menu that I would eat. Call me a Scrooge if you want but it is an event that I cannot attend. I am happier staying home. I will do my Christmas cards today and then work on the purse orders.
Yesterday I went shopping with Sam downstairs. She needed to buy fabric for a baby blanket so I took her to my friend's quilt shop and she helped us pick out the fabric and even gave Sam a 20% discount. She is also going to see if she can order the pattern for a purse that my friend made and gave me for Christmas a few years ago. I asked her if she would loan me the pattern, but no, she wouldn't. Maybe she isn't such a good friend? LoL Anyway, the purse is really neat. The body is like a gym bag with all kinds of pockets inside, then it folds up to a purse with more pockets on the outside. It can be carried as a backpack too. I want to make it in denim.. I guess it is a difficult pattern, but I have time to figure it out.
It's raining today and 36` this morning.
