I have been invited to a 4th of July charity barbecue but unfortunately, I can’t attend because I will be fabric hunting…..More on that later. The barbecue is organized by a friend of mine who operates a foundation, and this year the funds are being raised to help children of broken families with good grades to finish high school. I was asked to bring an item for the auction, specifically a table mat, not too big not too small. The invitation sat on my Facebook messages for 2 weeks and I just read it 24 hours ago. I panicked! Even if I can’t go, I know my friend will expect the table mat. After all, it is a good cause.
