As I scooped up the last handfuls of fallen petals from my most beautiful ever tulip bouquet, I could not seem to convince myself that they were done blooming.   So i placed them into a favorite white ware bowl so as to honor them just a bit longer.  Then I happened to notice. . .they matched some napkins I had just made from scraps of fabric.

   Double-Sided, Mitered-Corner Napkins.   When I wanted to refresh my memory about the technique I learned some years ago, I did a search and found a great guide for making them and best of all, it told you how to adapt measurements to make your desired size.  This way I was able to use a larger piece and also the smaller pieces that were left over.  Stitching up utilitarian homey things was so fun.

Click on this blog,  QUILTED STRAIT,  for the very useful napkin tutorial.  Happy Stitching!

I can't believe I received all of these in one day!
Mommy and Daddy went for a short Sunday kayaking adventure on our one day of
90 degree weather.  They dropped off these little bundles at our house.
Sweet in their little sweaters.  Actually, this picture
was taken on Easter Sunday.
Look what Mama brought for ME!  Loved
their floppy little whimsical attitude.   
Couldn't decide where to put them.
Just so lovely.

My good friend Don came up with this idea.  He created the basics and I added the applique and little extras inside.  He is a big fan of woven cottons and wool.   And so am I.   These could also be made up in all cotton or linen.  The two sizes can be used as shown or for any ole thing in your life that you choose to organize or simplify.  The pattern is called Organize.  Click Here to travel to the information and ordering page on our website.
