First serious attempt at embroidery. These napkins were an anniversary gift for a very special couple.

    They are lovely.  Did you use a pattern or did you make it up as you went?

    Thank you! I sketched out my ideas using the embroidery on a peasant blouse pattern from Sew News magazine. That pattern was by Kate & Rose Patterns. They have some beautiful embroidery patterns in their online store: http://kate-and-rose.com/shop/. I used the flowers from the peasant blouse as a point of departure and improvised from there.

    Great way to adapt a pattern.  They turned out very well.
