Embroidered napkins


I admit it... 

I've started thinking about Christmas and Christmas presents already!

I'm going to try and make as many presents as I can this year which means that I have to be organised (especially if I am to catch last post to Europe).

Tonight I embroidered these napkins. The design was taken from this collection of vintage embroidery transfers. My stitching is a bit rusty, but all in all I'm pleased with the result.
