Start with 2 10" squares layered right sides together for a napkin that finishes at 9.5". Sew around with a 1/4" seam leaving an opening to turn and then edge stitch after turning. So for a set of four napkins I cut 8 squares from 5/8 yd. Did you notice the rooster pin cushion? It's cast iron with wool insert for pins. Isn't it the cutest? It was a gift so it's one of a kind as far as I know. Aren't I the lucky one!
And, here is another quilt I quilted, this one was made by my sister-in-law. Her piecing is unbelievable! It is so precise and lays so flat. I think she called this one Chinese Candy Corn. I used a pantograph called Froth and Bubble on it with a thread color called Wheat.
Finally, who can resist this shot of Lucy, my father's pup, sitting on the hearth taken at my Dad's house. He lives in a house built in the 1870's. That is not a typo, it is almost 150 yrs old. This is one of four of the original fireplaces. I'll have to share more of this historic house some time. And I'll double check the date but I think I remembered it correctly.
If you are where it is snowing again I hope you stay warm inside and have time to work on one of your UFO's! I pulled out a knitting UFO to work on this evening. Let's get those projects done!
