I was almost ready to settle on buying them something "unique", like lotion. (I know, I know...how creative.) But my mother-in-law had recently bought a brand new Bernina activa 230 - Patchwork Edition and she was willing to let me take it for a spin. I fell in love with the stability of the machine and the smoothness of every stitch. She has it on a roomy sewing table with attachable extensions and can lower the machine to be flush with the tabletop. Very nice! She said I could use it ANY time I wanted...so my gears started turning. What can I make in only a few days? Here's what I came up with...a spring table runner!
Here are some pics of one of them:
Welp...Happy Mother's Day! May God bless all the mom's out there!
