This is the Mama bag. My mother asked me to make her a purse. She wanted it to be big, with a closure at the top and with shoulder straps. It is quilted, has a quilted outer pocket, a magnetic snap closure and 4 inside pockets. The only question is, will she use it? She is sort of set in her ways and she has been using the same big black pocketbook for a long, long time. I will let you know if she actually uses it!
I like to have cloth napkins on hand and ever since we moved to the farmhouse my supply of cloth napkins has dwindled down to about four. Not sure what happened to them, unless I left them at the old house. Anyway, I made several from kitchen or food themed scraps.

Rhonda reminded me in THIS POST that its a good idea to put a stack of cloth napkins and dish towels in a basket near the paper towels as a reminder to use them instead of the paper towels, if possible:
I'm also still working on the Summer One a Day 9 Patch Challenge. I did get behind, but not too badly. Today is the 20th of July, which means I should have 50 done. I have 39, so if I do a couple a day I will be caught up in no time.
