My sweetie is buying some groceries. I made him a list based on sale items and sent coupons with him.
In the afternoon I want to pay a little visit to my elderly neighbor across the road, who I know is lonely and could use a visit. She sits on her porch and sees all our comings and goings. I have some devotional books that I purchased at a library book sale with her in mind that I would like to deliver.
This is what the fabric looks like. The brown, orange and teal in it are great fall colors. This fabric is kind of stiff and thick which is great for a pocketbook. I don't know what the fabric content is, but it washed VERY well. It will definitely be a one of a kind pocketbook, although I have enough of the fabric to make two!

I plan to use quilt batting in the outer panels and machine quilt a grid design on them. The lining fabric is a matching brown and I plan to include an inner pocket made of the outer fabric. The top will have a button loop closure.
