I LOVE SUMMER!! And I'm loving summer in our new house. I know it's not officially summer yet, but it sure is warm around here, and hubby's last day at school with the kids is today. He's so excited.
Hubby and I got brand new bikes to ride around our neighborhood and to the nearby lake. I'll have to show you pictures of mine - sooo cute!
Anyway, when I was brainstorming for a placemat swap I just participated in, I couldn't help but be drawn to the bright and sunny yellow. And I've always loved yellow and blue together, so I found this great yellow and blue floral to pair with a dark blue denim. I used my embroidery machine - yay! - to embroider some cute little cups on the placemat pockets (they're handy for holding napkins and silverware). I came up with this design when I was making Christmas presents this last year, and it just worked out so well.
I'm really happy with how these cute yellow and blue ones turned out - I wish I had made some for myself! They make me feel like I've brought a little bit of summer indoors. I really hope my partner enjoys them as much as I enjoyed making them!
I just love the little cups!
Hope you're enjoying some warm and sunny weather where you are!
