Napkin Project and Birthday Books

20th August 2013

I arrived home last night to a mountain of washing and an empty fridge, the joys of having a son at home!!
This morning was spent shopping, washing and collecting Jack from his holiday hotel who gave me a rapturous welcome and we enjoyed a long walk.

My son then presented me with 2 books he had bought me for my birthday. I was really thrilled by his choice and forgave him the washing and empty fridge!!!



These are my other birthday books giving me lots of ideas!!





Spent a couple of hours sitting in the garden looking at my new books. 

Then I finished my napkin decoration for the Napkin Project.



This was a plain white napkin and I decided to use only red thread. The edges are blanket stitch, the corners have a spider web 3D flower, the centre has a free machined Whip Stitch flower and I used programmed stitches around the edge. I do hope the dementia residents enjoy using my napkin!
