Busy day!

Hello everybody,

I hope you all had a great Easter break.  We do not have any family in Canada, so we are more low keyed than most other families.  My husband watched the Masters, my mother did her thing, my daughter had a friend over and I had loads of time in my craftroom.  My nirvana, hence my blog name Michele's Nirvana, get it right!

So I got out my cute fabrics I bought last week and started sewing some new napkins.  I am trying to get into doing the tablescapes, and I needed more table linens to work with, hence the sewing going on.

I love the blue and yellows together!

In my previous post I showed you how I made my own napkin rings.  So, today I have changed them out to match my napkins.  These I started by punching heart shapes out of cardstock.  I then cut out hearts from the same fabric as the napkins.  I attached this to the cardstock heart with glue.  The tiny heart wreath shapes I have had forever do not even remember where I got them from.  The flowers were white paper roses, I sprayed them with a mist and attached them to the hearts.  I attached the velcro to the back of the hearts and now they  can be attached to the rings.  New NAPKIN RINGS!

The mugs used in my little set up today, I have had forever, and honestly I have no idea where I got them.  They are handmade and are beautiful.

Here are my two sets of napkins I have made with their matching napkin rings.

I hope you all enjoy this post and I would love to hear from you.

Have a wonderful day!
