This tote is a bound quilt that is folded in half and seamed up the sides by hand. Then you sew across the bottom corners to form a bottom of the bag, and I added a covered bottom piece attached with Velcro.
Here are a couple of my favorite shots from the weekend. The family patriarch once again volunteered to carve the turkey. Actually, two turkeys, deep-fried!
And there were lots of little ones running around this year. My dad gave my granddaughter Lily a sketch pad and some washable markers, and she had a mini-art lesson at the lap of the expert.
My father is staying with me until Wednesday, when he will travel to my sister's near Greensboro. He lived in nearby Cary for forty years until relocating to the North Carolina mountains, so he is enjoying some visits with former neighbors and friends today. And I am going to try to get my Christmas cards ready to mail.
And enjoy a quiet day. :)
