A gift idea for Christmas


A friend of ours will be hosting a Christmas party this year and she has asked me to make her something with grapes since her kitchen is wine themed. I made her this gift set which includes a small runner, a towel and a cathedral windows trivet.
I would have loved to make her some coasters but this fabric came in a scrap bag and when I went to the store to buy some yardage it was no longer available.

She will love this. So pretty and useful, or too pretty to use?
