    Wedding Shower Gifts

    We are in the process of selling/showing our house & buying a new one & moving. I had to reorganize my sewing loft to make it more appealing to buyers, make it look more open. Since February I haven't had a chance to get up there & do anything. I was invited to a wedding shower this past weekend & decided to make my gift instead of buying something. I was so happy to get up there & sew & quilt for a few days! This is what I came up with- placemats, napkins, bread basket & liner, and a wine bottle vest. I was so pleased that she really liked them & sent them around the room for everyone to see. Then yesterday the sale of our house fell through so it's back to neat & tidy! Glad I got some sewing & quilting in when I had the. Chance!

    I feel for you, there is nothing harder than having your home look picture perfect all the time. Good luck, I hope your house sells soon.

    Those placemats, and matching items are so pretty. I will keep them in mind.

    Those are beautiful; ready like the wine bottle vest. Is there a pattern you can share? Good luck on the sale of your house.

    Very nice - I hate having to show a house - mine never stays neat and clean - I'm just a messy person and that is ok with me.

    Maggie, those are so pretty! My oldest granddaughter is getting married in November and I have been thinking of some things to make her for all the showers. Those are a great idea. Did you have a pattern, if so can you share it?

    We are on the same wave link, I am in the process of making Table Runner & Placemats for a gift... never thought of the breadbasket or wine bottle vest. Thanks for sharing your work with us.
