Fair Trade Napkins



Sewing is almost fun when you've got a seamstress for company!

She pinned, I sewed, and in no time at all I had the set of Liberty tana lawn afternoon tea napkins that I'd envisaged.

They're not perfect, but I love them nonetheless. I'm so glad I used the beautiful fabric sooner rather than later, because now I will see it and admire it much more frequently than if it were folded in the cupboard.

Love the napkins - what a great use of the lovely fabric. However, my eye is drawn to the skeins of yarn in the background.....
