A special gift for a special friend on her wedding day...

Okay so Gabby shouldn't be reading here today, she's getting married in about 5 hours. So i figure it's safe to post pictures of what I have made for her. I hope she loves it.
First up is a table runner to match her kitchen theme of grapes. It's extremely hard to photograph a long table runner, i could have done it outside had it not been raining the day i wanted to take the picture.

Then i made a couple hot pads (with the special insulating batting) for the table, could also be used as pot holders.

This is a casserole carrier, the pictures show it with my own casserole dish, i got her a new one for it though :-) I also included a special flip book of my favorite casserole recipes (i forgot to take a picture of that before i wrapped everything up). I printed a bunch of recipes on card stock, laminated them, made a cover and put it on a ring for easy flipping. The pattern for the carrier came from my friend Tracy who saw it in a magazine recently. I really think it's cute. It also has the special insulating batting to keep your dishes hot or cold.

Finally my absolute favorite item i made, and it's not sewn but it's still crafty. I bought a big picture frame and special mat. I decoupaged it with many papers that match her kitchen theme. I created a special center panel to mark their special day and left the other two areas blank for photos of the wedding. I really am thrilled with how it turned out.

Let me know what you think. Hope you love them Gabby!
