I haven't shown my paperdoll quilt that I am making for my BFF. A bit unprofessional? Ahhhh, yes. I am finding more and more difficult to applique each day. I have locking finger joints on my ring and middle fingers on both may have heard of "trigger finger" before. It really sucks to try and do most needlework, I have to stop and pop the finger out....take aspirin or tylenol for pain, do some more applique. Whining over, here are some pics...I know she will love it.


What are you working on?

The coolest Christmas gift ever!

My friend, BeeBee, in Louisiana, sent me some really cute napkins~~
     She found the tutorial on sometime back. Very cute, very simple.

A green and red fabric circle.

It appears they are sewn right sides together, with a small slit, clipped, turned and pressed.

                                                                               They are pressed nicely, but, if you notice, there are pressing marks in the fabric. And the circle is folded with @ 1/2" of the red showing.                                                            

Now, can you see the fold marks in the circle? I so love short and sweet.



I plan on a few more of these dinner napkins. Wouldn't this make a great last minute gift?

Pop on over to BeeBee's blog and check out her new "babies." One takes electricity and the other makes you smile~~

Merry Christmas, Elaine

As a sidenote, I know not who came up with this pattern, but since it was on, I am going to assume it's public domain.
