It was an unexpectedly busy and fun weekend and it all started with this one little wallet and pictures.
A few weeks ago I asked Ashley if she was up for a photo shoot. I had a few items that I wanted to photograph and she always throws her full self into a photo shoot, which is why I love it when she has time to do one with me. She was busy last weekend, but offered to come home to take pictures this weekend as she wanted to see my parents and little Asher.
A while back when she was home at Christmas she showed me the very dirty state of the wallet that I had made for her about 3 years ago. Oh my goodness it was in such a sorry state that I told her to go pick out a few fabrics from my not too small stash and told her I would make her a new one. She chose the fabrics above and truly I never would have put these 2 fabrics together, along with the turquoise zipper, but I love how it came out and they suit her perfectly!
Knowing that she was making the effort to drive an hour home, I thought it would be a kind gesture to get this done for her. She was very excited.
So I spent Saturday morning getting a bunch of yarn re-skeined and out to the post office and then I settled in to prepared for Sunday's company, that quickly grew into a family gathering of the best kind. Homemade chili (thanks for the recipe Jeff!), quacamole and lemon custard squares to quiet my parent's sweet tooth...ha!
Little Asher spent a good part of the afternoon entertaining us with his antics, as you can see here in this video that Hannah took. I love that both of my grandsons really love the dogs here.
How darn cute is this??
(Oh...and the hamper isn't usually in the kitchen, but that is another long story for another day.)
