I've been working on some super simple projects lately. I finished the mach
ine cover and now I'm working on new cloth napkins. We only use cloth ones,
 I prefer them. When I get feeling in a rut sewing I go to really easy thin
gs to get a jump start. I will probably go to a new Jeans skirt when I fini
sh this project. I love jeans skirts. They always look neat and are easy to
 make.

Oh goodness, I haven't worn a skirt since Adam was a lad!

Here's a link to the skirt. http://so-sew-easy.com/on-safari-skirt-pattern/
I like to use stretch fabrics for ease of wearing.My other one is black den
im and I have blue in my stash for my new one, I prefer skirts in the summe
r on long trips. They let in more air.
The napkins are a pale blue Paisly pattern I picked up at JoAnn's. No pictu
res, I'm sorry. They are 20 inch squares with a rolled hem. simple to make  
and look so pretty.

It's really comfofrtable . I wear it all the time. in winter I wear tights  
under it and in the warm weather with boat shoes, no stockings.

Forgot to say I was able t o get 10 napkins out of thee yardage I have. The
 best thing though is the  fabric is American made.
