Afternoon Picnic blog tour

Afternoon Picnic blog tour

Hello friends,

It’s my stop at Afternood Picnic collection by Nancy Zieman Productions for Riley Blake designs.

As I personally didn’t know Nancy very well, I would like to share Cindy Cloward’s beautiful blog post,

Remembering Nancy Zieman.


I picked the floral prints and made two set of  placemats and napkins. I hope to make three more sets for all my family members.




You can find my free tutorial for how to sew this clean corners on




I also made a oven mit and let my husband use. I should make a matching apron for him, right?

I hope you enjoyed my projects.

Thanks for stopping by!
