Quilted Gifts for a Friend’s 70th!

DH and I are off to our Friend’s 70th Birthday Celebration in a little while where we will be having Afternoon Tea.  Of course she has said she wants no presents but donations can be made to Guide Dogs for the Blind as she and her husband are Guide Dog Puppy Walkers.  However she is also a Quilter, so I just had to make her something for her sewing room.

I got this lovely fabric a month ago when I was on the hunt for some particular bright white material and saw it in the quilt shop and just loved it.  It has a sewing theme but also a county theme too and I loved the colours.

This is a sewing kit which she can use at her Quilt group.

You always need a new pin cushion.

This is a quilted mat for under her sewing machine.

Of course you always need more containers for you to keep things in so I made this material bag/bucket below:

Everything fits nicely inside, although I have wrapped them individually in tissue paper and then put it all in a gift bag.   I still have some of the material left so am thinking of making myself something for the sewing room, possibly the bag!!!!

I am hoping to get some pictures of the Afternoon Tea and will show you these later or tomorrow if I can persuade Treacle to let me have some time on her day!!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone.

Hugs, Susie xx
