Unfortunately I was not able to spend my BFF’s birthday with her this year. Last year Hubby and I surprised Summer by setting up a surprise visit with her hubby and driving to North Carolina from DC for her birthday weekend. This year Hubby and I moved to California a few weeks before her birthday so I thought a great birthday present would be a hand-made one. I decided to make her a table/dresser/cabinet runner (could be used on any of these furniture pieces) and to use asian inspired fabrics in it. We met a few years ago when we all lived in Okinawa, Japan and I wanted that time represented in the runner. I designed the runner based on the size of the panels I used. Below you can see pics of the runner as it was being made and then the finished product. It turned out just the way I imagined it would! Summer received her gift today and called with excitement and a huge thank you. Happy belated birthday Summer! I Luv Ya!!
