    I have already made her several quilts, she wouldn't use mug rugs, or the bow tucks purse so that's out.

    I also embroider. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    Good suggestions everyone, thanks.

    Well, she is a widow, & doesn't really cook anymore. She has several quilts of different sizes I have made. I made her some dish towels but says they are too pretty to mess up.

    I don't know about the hankies, and doesn't have any animals.

    She does go to the gym and is in the pool a lot there, so maybe an embroidered gym towel???

    I also thought of pillows for her couch.

    Since she goes to the gym, how about a nice quilted bag? Your idea of a embroidered towel is also a nice idea.

    How about a potholder saying "I only have a kitchen because it came with the house"?
