Portofino placemats & napkins
My great-niece is getting married in Florida soon, so we Michigan aunts are giving her a shower, for which she is flying in.
I "shopped" for fabrics to make placemats and napkins in the stash Nancy has given me from her travels in South Carolina and Michigan. The bride and groom have chosen red accents for their kitchen. Their taste is elegant and traditional.
My love affair with printed linens like this deepens. It's like a toile, but is it?
I thought it would make magnificent napkins.
And I think I was right.
We'll see if I make it with these and the chicken salad to the shower tomorrow since I came down with a hum dinger of a cold last night. Don's chicken soup (from the chicken for the salad, yes) is soothing my raw throat. In fact, he is helping with all the prep and will even drive the stuff across the state in the morning if I am not up to going.
I hope Emma has chosen as much of a winner as I did nearly 36 years ago.
