House warming gift

My husband and I have been invited to dinner this Sunday. Some friends of ours have recently moved into a new home and we are to be their first dinner guests. I wanted to bring something special with me as a house warming gift. I cut the fabrics out this morning for a table runner that I hope to have finished before we go. Because I'm short on time, I choose a simple pattern that can be done on the machine but still look good. My husband and I have been helping them paint and move in. Which was helpful for knowing what color choices to pick for the table runner. Best of all I went shopping for the fabric in my very own stash!!! I had everything I will need for this particular project! :0)

  3. Speaking as an often relocated and new home owner, housewarming gifts are always appreciated. More so when they are home made. I am envious of your organized sewing room...
