Yesterday as I was cruising fairly rapidly around the supermarket I noticed these! Serviettes ( or paper napkins or table napkins ) with New Zealand Pohutukawa, our Christmas flowering tree . Hadn't seen those before. Had to get some. I'll keep them till next Christmas. In my deep table linen drawer I already keep a stash of special use serviettes. ( not every day ones ) Some are here in this photo. There are some beautiful ones available now. I think it might have been Dale who used similar as the background or starting point for embellishing over. Do any of you enjoy finding these table setting beautifiers? As a little girl one of my jobs was to set the table and along with cutlery, cruet and glasses was always table napkins; fabric ones that were ironed( good to learn on) and kept in serviette rings. I still have some of those ones but don't use them ....these tissue paper ones are prettier and easier. Good restaurants still use linen ones.
Now the blue fabric you asked about Helen. It is Pottery by The Erlanger Group Ltd. Patt#2888. and I purchased it at Barnhouse and Embroidery in Tauranga.
