I got this embroidery pattern in a trade with a girl on t'internet and thought it would be perfect for my friend's engagement present.  The material for the napkins later caused a bit of contention in the family because my gran gave it to me and my mum later recognised it as a rather expensive tablecloth she gave my gran for their 30th wedding anniversary!  In my defence, it was cut into pieces when I got it so I'm staying well out of this one!

Anyway, here they are...







I'm quite chuffed with them though one of them is upside down and on the last one I ran out of yellow thread for the writing and ended up using white instead.  It's not that noticeable though!  Or so I tell myself....

Thanks guys!  I think I might be becoming slightly addicted to embroidery, at the tender age of 21 I feel this is maybe a bit sad ...*hangs head*...
