There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Many of my friends and I are users of cloth napkins for everyday, so I made these of a couple who's birthdays are both in the spring.  They have great senses of humor and are dog lovers.



I backed them with this green on green "Dinky Diamonds" by Michael Miller that looks a lot better with the Dogs in person than it does in these photos.  After doing 2 sets of napkins (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=236986.msg2598601#msg2598601) using backing fabric instead of hemming and mitering, I don't think I'll go back!



I used contrasting thread to top stitch, because it turned out so cute last time.  I was having a hard time finding something I liked in my stash, when I realized that this vintage rust colored stuff from my grandma's 1970s collection was the same color as their playing cards and drinks!  Eureka!



Pardon the cat hair!
