I LOVE these napkins! They are simply beautiful!
And your photos are stunning.
Thanks so much for hosting,

Lisa, just found you through Shirley....Lovely...I have always been a fan of embroidered linens and yearn for an embroidery sewing machine...the possibilities are endless as you have shown us with your exquisite examples here...going back now to read your older entries...N.xo

Oh my goodness Lisa, those napkins are just amazing!...When setting a table for a large group, I often find placing the silverware a bit cumbersome as their is not a lot of "room"..so I wrap the silver and napkin together..however, you have taken it to the many next levels...Just in awe of what you did!...I have so many things monogrammed and maybe should think about a machine...so I look forward to your post on this!!

LOVE the napkins!!! Have been wanting and embroidery machine for a long time, may just have to take the plunge>

The napkins are beautiful. Do you look for a certain type of fabric when shopping. And your photography is out of this world. I am still struggling along with learning my camera. What kind do you use and what are your favorite settings? I have a Husqvarna sewing machine -- the color is kind of sienna. That will tell you how old it is. I think I could do simple embroidery on it. I love monograms. BTW -- I also found you through KariAnne

Have just found you through Thistlewood Farm! Soooo, glad I did! Because of you I now own 12 new sets of napkins with mitered corners! OMG! you made it so easy.....I'm a napkin-making momma now!
just love your idea's.....will be visiting often...working on a quilt now along with seven other sewing projects for
Easter....will be sharing this on my blog!
Happy Monday...

Lisa, you inspired me several years ago to purchase an embroidery machine, which your beautiful monograms napkins. Like Thimbleanna, I bought a Husqvarna Viking and am so pleased with it. Love the flatware design!

I love them! They came out beautiful! Seriously, if I saw these in a store, I would buy them for sure!

Those are beautiful Lisa! And what a fun embroidery design -- perfect for the napkins.

I love my embroidery machine. I think you should just save yourself a lot of time and jump right to the punch line -- tell your readers to buy a Husqvarna Viking embroidery machine LOL!!! (Can you tell I'm an island in a sea of Bernina quilters? I always have to give them a hard time because they missed the boat!!!)
