I have spent these days going through my fabrics
and cutting out new dinner napkins.
The present dinner napkins are looking very tired and worn.
With the help of my vintage sewing machine,
and my supervisor, Taboo, watching over me,
I am able to quickly get the linens sewn and
finished in a day.
Hand stitching these would have taken forever.
However, I do like to hand stitch a decorative blanket stitch on my napkins.
They look prettier and the stitching keeps the edges lasting longer.
I managed to get a good amount of table napkins to last
They are perfect for mix and match
either on new dishes
or with a table set with vintage dishes.
Vintage plates seem to go with any fabric chosen
for a napkin.
I also crocheted new dishcloths........these
get very tired after a while of dish scrubbing.
It is also a great way to use up all of my scrap yarn.
Wanting to try something new,
I crocheted, soft, cotton wash cloths
These will be perfect with a pretty bar of soap
tucked into a basket for a gift for a friend.
I think I am at the phase in life where
gift giving is not important.
I would rather have a chat/visit,
an email to catch up, over a gift any day.
Sharing and catching up with friends over a table set with pretty dishes and linens
and the warmth of friendship
"Come, Sit, Stay"
