My first project through the Frecked Nest’s on-line Home Ec course is making cloth napkins.  These are the coordinating fabrics I chose to make six napkins.  I ignored the Ric-rac edging as I’m not a Ric-rac kind of girl.

I bought my first sewing machine today: the Brother CE-5500PRW.  The reviews were great, and it is a top pic of consumer reports. The  course website starts posting projects Tuesday.  The machine  should arrive Wednesday, which is perfect for me since I work the next two days.

I can’t wait to get started!
