swap it out!

I can't believe it's almost April the 15th...are your taxes and napkins both finished?  I mailed my napkins off this morning. (and my honey took care of the taxes a while ago! so I'm good to go!) Thanks to everyone who participated in the Napkin Swap.  It turned out to be a lot of fun!  I've been seeing some napkin sets popping up here and there around blogland. 
 It's so fun to see what everyone chose for their fabrics.  Courtney set up a flickr group so everyone can see everyone's napkins...isn't she clever?!  Thanks Courtney!  Just click on the words flickr group and it'll take you straight to the group, you can sign in and upload your napkin swap photos to share! 
I've also added Mr. Linky...if you've blogged about your napkin swap, feel free to add your link below.  Make sure the post you link to is the specific post where you blogged about your napkins, not your main blog url.  Simply copy the url from your post and add it to the Mr. Linky that way everyone can see all the homemade goodness that's being shared!  Feel free to add your link even if you wrote it last week or for that matter, when you get to it next week....no worries.  I'll leave the Mr. Linky up so we can all see the fantastic napkins from the swap!  Just come back to this post to add your napkin love. 
Special thanks again to Courtney for all her help with the Napkin Swap! I couldn't have done it without all of her help! And thanks to Kristyn for the Mr. Linky idea and for allowing me to bounce ideas off of her before going 'public'!  So, go ahead and link up to the flickr group and the Mr. Linky so we can see what you and your swap partner swapped out!

Hello, I'm a new reader of your blog, I found it last week and have been devouring it ever since. It is such a beautiful, inspiring place! I already have gotten several project ideas. :)

I just had to comment to tell you that my grandmother has not only the exact same silverware, but that plate set as well. :) Your napkins look lovely, I can't wait to make some for my family!

Love the fabric you chose for your napkins, they look great, especially all bundled in ribbon!

Okay -- I tried my link to Beth's wonderful napkins (that are getting quite the work-out, I must say). I've got to go back and make sure it works before I declare success. Thanks so much for coordinating this with the wonderful Courtney.

Oooooh -- I love the linky thing! What fun to have quick access to everyone's blogs.

The napkins you created are just wonderful!

Love the linky thing... just added mine. And I can't wait to see all the napkins on the Flickr! We've been using the napkins Courtney made and we just LOVE them! The napkins you've made, Lisa are sooo pretty--love the red, so festive and cheerful. I have to say, this was one of the very best swaps I've been a part of. I really like that we swapped something not only just beautiful, but very useful and eco-friendly too. Brilliant! Thanks, Lisa :o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

I'll be all over Mr. Linky as soon as I'm done! I'm waiting on my fabric to arrive. Nothing like the last minute, is there?

Christina said...

What pretty napkins! I'm wishing now that I had done the napkins swap...it looks like such fun. Maybe you can do it again next year so that I can join the fun. : )

Larissa said...

Love the cheery fabric on your napkins! And your woven placemats - so wonderful for spring! I'm finishing up my napkins - and my taxes since my husband prefers to leave them to me. i don't really like to leave everything to the last minute but i do find that tasks tend to expand to fill the time allotted so if i allot very little time i should get everything done lickety-split! (ha ha)

Kristyn Knits said...

love the fabrics you chose for your blessed friends! I'm sewing mine up and sending them off, so will link up soon. THANKS for being the chief napkin maker and inspiring all of us to join along!

Leah said...

My napkins are done! Just waiting for my partner's mailing address. I'm headed to the flickr group to see all the beautiful napkins! :)

Ruth said...

I sent my napkins along but with my excitement for getting them done and off I forgot to take a picture. Hopefully, Chris will take one when she gets them. I do hope she likes them.

This was such a fun swap to see take place. Thanks for doing Mr. Linky so all of us can see the napkins. I knew this would be fun for all of you. :)

Hey, let me know if you decide to part with your brown stemware! That is so funny that you have those like I found!
