BFF Birthday Gift Ideas


So, first, welcome to my little piece of the Blogosphere!  Happy you found me, and hope we can have a lot of fun with our spectacularly wonderful Husqvarna Viking sewing & embroidery machines!  I brought home a beautiful Husqvarna Viking Designer Diamond Royale around the holiday season:


And, I can’t wait to start my first project of the year with my new lovely – some pretty table runners for each of my BFF’s.  My gal pals really appreciate anything made by hand,  both being very talented ladies, themselves.  So, I want these table runners to be extra special.  I opted on table runners because both of my friends do a fair piece of entertaining (and I am my hubby are frequently the recipients of said entertaining), so I thought they’d enjoy something pretty and special for their respective dining rooms.  I had a lot of fun shopping for pretty fabrics for each of their beautiful homes, and thought I’d share some photos of the fabrics and designs for the first table runner.  A little fabric “eye candy” for you:

These scrumptious fabrics are designed by Jo Morton for Andover Fabrics. They are from the “Amelia” Collection“.

So, next time, I’ll post up my design for my table runner, created in EQ7!  Happy Sewing!
