On A Wonderful Day Like Today...

 We're invited to the home of friends for dinner this evening, so I
made a "thank you" gift to take along for our hostess. I've been 
making them each time we go to a new home for the first time.
I can tell you that this gift idea has been really appreciated each time.

I chose this soft botanical fabric for one side of these two-sided napkins.
 Because our host is a musician friend, I chose music-themed fabric that
coordinates with the fabric on the front. I'm happy with the way they look.

These napkins took a total of two hours to make from fabric choice to
completion. Making a set of six takes less than an afternoon, and they
really make a nice impression as a gift. I've sent them to friends and
family, too, so I frequently choose colors I already know they love.

Now, all I have to do is decide what I'll wear this evening. hmmmmm.
I'll be joining the girls at our Coffee Club this morning.
Last week was wild, as we all helped with the Going Out Of Business
Sale rather than hanging around drinking coffee and visiting. There was
not time to catch up or commiserate. I'm guessing there will be more of
the same this weekend. Kathy and Nora have had a crazy, busy week.

I'll have one stop after I leave there and then a quick trip to Venice so I
can go to the Venice Guild Quilt Show. I'll spend a couple of hours there
before going home so Handsome and I can go to dinner with friends.

As I think about my schedule today, I can't help but appreciate the blessings
in my life. Doesn't this sound like a wonderful way to spend a Saturday?
(Yup. I think so, too.)

Beautiful, love the fabric choice. The ferns and butterflies remind me a bit of Lenox Butterfly Meadow collection. Your napkins are wonderful, what a great gift. :)
