Admitting it is the first step, right? You see, I made these 26 napkins at the height of summertime from a fabric collection called “Elsie’s Kitchen.” I loved them for their fun, retro look. I still love them for that, and we use them exclusively – I haven’t bought paper napkins in months. They feel so nice and soft, having been through several washes now.
But there is a problem. While I slather cream cheese on my pumpkin muffin and slurp up my hot apple cider, I am finding it “jarring” to dab my lips with a napkin devoted to lemonade, cherries, and summertime fun. Shoot. When I made these, I didn’t think of them as seasonal at all. But then, when I made these, I wasn’t watching leaves flutter by the windows or listening to acorns hit the roof.
I’m going to have to face it – I need Fall napkins. And I need them in a fun fabric collection with the same “vibe” as these. How hard could that be to find, right? And you know what’s coming next, don’t you? Clearly I’m going to need Christmas napkins. And maybe just general Winter napkins, too. sigh.
I imagine Neil is planning an intervention for me as we speak…
I should be asking if anyone knows of a good 12-step program, but instead I think I’m going to ask: does anybody know of any fun seasonal fabric collections that will also make good napkins? Leave a comment, if you do
