My niece is getting married soon. We are having a shower here for her but she lives in California so will need to get all the gifts back home with her. We will either pack an additional suitcase for her and pay the fee or ship the gifts to her. When thinking about the weight and packing issues I decided that table/kitchen linens would be a fun and appropriate gift. I bought some placemats and kitchen towels and will make napkins and hot pads. The napkins are still in the works but I tried a different type of pot holder and am really pleased with the way they turned out. I think they will be practical, they are colorful and they were fun to make. I can see making more of this type soon!
