Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people. Eleanor Roosevelt

I mostly finished my linen. The linen came with 4 napkins. They looked as if they had never been used. They were a different color than the linen and the small flowers are a bit brighter that the big flowers on the linen. The linen is also faded and stained in several places. But I have this miracle wash that I will soak it in when I'm done. But even if the stains don't come out, it will still be lovely.

I put 1 napkin in the middle of the quilt and the other 3 are just the right size to go on the end. The circle quilting is not perfect by any means, but I've found that I like lots of quilting. I've also learned that washing and drying a quilt will make small mistakes disappear. Isn't there an old saying " it'll come out in the wash"? It doesn't come out, it just disguises it. I still am trying to come up with a plan for the middle napkin. I quilted the main flowers onto it, but it needs lots more. Also there are those 3 other napkins to quilt.

Well we know what I'll be working on.

Take care, Brandie
