The ultimate plan is to have a nice setting for my own tea party.
I gathered my tools. I used my 14in square ruler. It was just the right size to cut 6 exact squares of linen.
I machine embroidered those linen squares.
I choose a backing fabric from the stash. I've had this piece of cotton for years.
I serge the embroidered linen square to the backing square,wrong sides together,all the way around, pressed,and now I have a set of six napkins for my tea party. ( I took a picture showing four,so that I could get this posted).
