This week's sewing
We like cloth napkins and were getting short on them. When I looked through my fabric scraps, I found this tablecloth checked remnants. There were 2 pieces of the blue that were big enough to cut into 15 or so inch squares for a large dinner napkin size- I made 8 like that.
I also had more blue scraps as well as green and red scraps. They were all cut in about 13 inch squares. That size is a little smaller than we prefer but the fabric is just perfect for cloth napkins.
So, I just pinned them together and made double faced napkins, more a cocktail size.
The small ones are reversible and I think they look very cheerful.
This was fabric from my stash- not anything I went out and bought. I have a pretty big stash, mostly given to me. Some is stuff my mom bought, some is from the thrift store and a lot of the recent stuff is bargains my dad finds at yard sales.
I am really thankful to have it.
My husband says that when I get ready to make something, I can usually find what I need in the craft room and he is right.
I've also been sewing up 2 tops for me - maybe they will be finished soon and I can show you next week.
Baked Zucchini Chips

Another Pinterest recipe I tried this week- very good way to serve zucchini or squash.
I use Panko bread crumbs but I think saltine cracker crumbs would be great too.
I followed the recipe and had twice as much breading as would fit on my 3 squash.
