Nearly Finished

Well, thank you to all my cheerleaders, I think I'm nearly done now:

I wasn't looking forward to doing these:  They all needed to be hooped in pretty much the same place to make all the embroideries appear in the same place.

Usually I hoop the item to be embroidered, but instead I hooped some sticky stuff, so that could stay in the hoop and I could stick the napkins to it.

I then drew a line to mark the placement of the napkin corner

And carefully lined up each napkin along the line

And stitched

Each embroidery took a chunk out of the sticky stabiliser which is why that looks at bit patchwork, but it all worked out fine, phew!
