My Favorite Things



My favorite thing this week is a set of 8 cloth napkins that I embroidered for my friend, Su. She gave these as a bridal shower gift. She said there is an old-fashioned tradition of giving a new bride a set of cloth napkins with her first name embroidered somewhere on each napkin. Of course, these used to be hand embroidered. Su had me machine embroider them on my Babylock professional embroidery machine.

I think these make an elegant, thoughtful, and very personal gift. Su said the bride, Alice, loved them!
