Stitching the new designs for May has been a delight because they are all very different and I really enjoying using different textures with both stitches and lace...
The theme for May is *beauty* because each of the embroideries convey beauty in a unique way.
From the layers of lace in the "Linen & Lace" vase to the little bee embellished hexies in "The Summer House" each of the five designs has something of beauty to display.

It's really that easy.
Now that I've finished stitching the May designs I can take a little break to play in my sewing room with these vintage napkins.
My plan is to centre two over the top of plain quilted squares of fabric to make new beside table toppers...
...and perhaps use the other two in a bag? They'd be gorgeous as pockets,
I also have these sweet little coasters which could become lovely pincushions...
...but I still have my thinking cap on at the moment so that plan could alter as the days go by.
What would YOU make with these lovely vintage linens?
