A group of friends and I had a surprise birthday party for a good friend. She is such a talented sew'er and quilter, so we decided to have a sewing theme. I used my quilted table runner and for napkins rings, just some old wooden spools tied on with yarn. We asked each person to bring a fat quarter for the birthday girl, I laid them out in long pieces, overlapping. I took a tall tin, wrapped the fabric around it, held it together with a rubber band and tided a ribbon over it.
My friend Kristin made embroidered dishtowels for the birthday girl. They looked perfect hanging over the back of each chair. Also another friend Mary, made charming place card holder with scrapbook paper, buttons and mini clothespins holding them up.
It all turned out wonderful, I think the birthday girl was very happy. Happy birthday Tracy, we all adore you xoxoxo
