The beauty of variegated floss


The napkins......embroidered by me on plain white cotton napkins
using different colors of variegated floss.
 I have been wanting to use some 
of the variegated floss I have had for so many years......but have always had a 
hard time deciding what design to use it with. This butterfly pattern is perfect. It used much 
of the different colors on each strand. 
The dinner plate pattern is Butterfly Botanical by Pfaltzgraff
I have been wanting to make a set of napkins to go with this set of dishes for some time now.
The table runner is  The Farmhouse by Rachel Ashwell.
I purchased it at Home Goods. 

It has a beautiful zinnia print in muted colors.......perfect to 
go with the variegated butterfly napkins.
The silverware is vintage Queen Bess II

I am hoping this finds your summer days full of lovely butterflies and flowers.
