This is one time the current SF tendency to print much lighter than what appears in their web-window is a boon. The reds are a nice bright Christmas red, and the greens are a nice pine-tree green, not the near-black of the SF screen view.

Sue Ellen this design is so festive, and I love the color of green you chose. I think the directions are great too! -Tara
Fantastically festive design with those, as I said before 'O, so neat mitres'!
Very nice! Great to have such clear instructions!
Thank you for your kind words, Isabella and Victoria!
Elegant and delicate, and the instructions work so well!!
The sweet pattern on the napkins is so lovely and festive and the graphic instructions you've included on the panel are fabulously helpful. Well done!
Thank you, Rhonda. Coming from a teacher, your comment on the instructions is doubly appreciated :-) I have to admit that these tiny florets have held a special place in my heart for many years; I'm glad you like them, too.
Your Christmas Edelweiss design has a sweet daintiness that is very appealing! Sue Ellen, I am incredibly impressed by your precise, detailed and well-illustrated instructions for stitching the mitred corners on the napkins!
Thank you, Angela! Miters were hard for me, too. I always felt like I had to have an extra set of hands to hold all the bits in the right place, and then yet another set to stitch it all down, and it was still lumpy. And then I learned about snipping across the corner first, and patiently pressing it all before stitching, and suddenly I could do it.
Lovely design and your instructions are impeccable- I can never master that miter corner!
Thanks, Rengal! Writing directions is always the hardest part for me, so this time I decided to do them with pictures. I still admire Craig Claiborne's ability to get the boning of a chicken into words; I don't think I could have done it, myself.
Thank you, Kathy. I just got the proof back, and I am pleased to say, this is one time the current SF tendency to print much lighter than what appears in their web-window is a boon. The reds are a nice bright Christmas red, and the greens are a nice pine-tree green, not the near-black of the SF screen view. The colors are a bit flat because of proofing on the Kona. With luck, I will get my scanner back running next week, and get some fabric images posted.
Lovely with great directions. I'm still at the planing stage.
Thank you for asking, Moira. I don't think I have a "lock" on how to do mitred corners, nor on "how-to" close-ups. Besides, we designers tend to be "visual learners," and pictures often work better than words. So, please, make it easy on our customers, and use the idea for your project. I look forward to seeing your illustrations.
Very festive and beautiful too. I love the instruction close-ups for the 'Oh, so neat' mitred corners. Would you mind if I use that idea for mine too?
This is the final step, short of a final pressing after finishing the hems. (Sorry these are listed as fabric images, but that seemed to fit better than project images!)

This is the third step.
This is the second step.
The instructions are hard to see on the monitor in the FQ view, so I have put them on Flick'r for those of us who enjoy larger print.
That looks neat - the way you've drawn the instructions! Looking at the FQ view although I can't actually read them I can see quite clearly how the corner mitre works - this is a very good idea! (I always find it easier to follow the pictures when sewing - when often I am too literal for the written instructions...)
