Hi Everyone, Just got back from almost 3 weeks on Cape Cod and now have
get down to work. While away, I found some very pretty cotton fabric
with an all an over Hydrangea design. I want to use it make some napkins
to go with place mats I bought for DD's new kitchen. They have
Hydrangeas on them. I seem to remember someone saying to use woolly
nylon in the upper looper for rolled hems. Am I correct in that memory?

Yes you are!  :) That makes a really nice rolled hem.  Normal thread in the
needle.  Woolly nylon in the loopers for a 3 thread rolled hem.

Thanks Sharon, I'll get to it tomorrow. they should be very pretty. OF
course I'm a Hydrangea freak and very partial to the fabric. On the OT
side of Hydrangeas, we had people stop and take pictures of the ones in
from of our cottage. They are a vivid blue. If anyone loves them the way
we do they might be interested to know that we get them to look so
pretty. DH feeds them with left over coffee watered down and spreads the
used coffee grounds under the plants. HE does a different one each day.

Oh how funny!!  I would never think they were caffeine junkies.  ;)  Our
next door neighbor has a gorgeous hydrangea this year.  For some reason,
it's never done this before and they've not done anything different to it,
it is blooming half blue half purple.  It's really pretty, but somewhat
surprising.  ;)

Since hydrangeas get their color from iron and acid it must be the way
the roots are taking up the 2 or they have split personality. lol

Sharon, Thanks again. I just did the napkins and they came outlooking
very good. I think my DD will be happy with them. I'll find out tomorrow.
