We've been using cloth napkins
since the establishment of our family in 1979.
Instead of napkin rings, we use clothespins.
Friends and family write their names on the pins
and reuse their napkins until laundry time.
When folks are away for a bit,
their clothespin goes out to the clothesline
to remind me of them as I peg out the washing.
Now that it's just two of us at most meals,
I decided that Batman and I need some funky, fresh napkins.
I raided my fabric stash and found some off beat fat quarters.
Put two right sides together,
trimmed to square with a rotary cutter,
stitched 1/4 seam allowance,
turned right side out, whip stitched the opening, pressed
and top stitched around the edges.
Cats, Day of the Dead and knitting, all in one fabric line.
Did some fabric designer read my blog profile?
Dang, it feels good to be sitting at my machine again!
Hunkering in for whatever "Danny" brings.....
What are you up to?
