Making Gifts

The younger daughter of the Cousin-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named* had a birthday earlier this week. She's a special girl who manages to be both fearless and feminine, at the same time.

It's always a good day when we get to visit with her and her older sister. They have their mom's sweet spirit and their dad's wicked sense of humor.

So, clearly in need of a gift, I headed to my sewing room and found just enough of this adorable owl fabric to make a purse. I love how it turned out!

Originally, the party was going to be at my aunt's cabin, just down the road from us. However, it is hurricane season in the southeast, and the threat of high wind and heavy rain moved the party back to town. We didn't make it to the big city for the party, but I know the birthday girl had a great time, even without us.
