Bridal Shower Gifts...

Sunday was the Bridal Shower
for my nephew's fiance.
I had a previous commitment
so I could not attend.

My daughter-in-law went and she graciously offered to take my gift along for the Bride-to-be.

These were purchased pillow cases that I machine embroidered the couples names on.
Then I attached some very pretty cluny lace to the cuff edge.

To match the other pillow cases I made these.
The color theme for their linens was white and silver so I stuck with those colors.
These came out so cute (the photos are poor)!
They have the inside flap that covers the pillow completely on the open end.
I really like making the pillow cases like this and have perfected my pattern...finally!

I also machine embroidered some flour sack towels for them...
Don't worry, I didn't forget the weekend!

The entire gift was wrapped in a beautiful decorative box I purchased in Michael's.
Forgot to take a picture of it.  The theme on the box was Paris to match the theme of the shower invite.

I put a gift card in a frame that matched the theme.
Very cute!

The other commitment...

Black Belt Promotions (2 days of testing) at our Karate Dojo!
This was a very special promotion because it was the first Black Belt testing
for the Uchi Te Ryu Association under the direction of my husband Hanshi Seiken Takamine.

The weekend was fantastic and the students did a great job!

Still sewing strong!

Hi Colleen,
I can now read your blog whereas I couldn't before. Don't know what you changed, but it worked for me. Thanks
