I finally made me a coaster for my desk at work. I got a new job...and I really need something to spruce of my area for now....it is a temporary desk situation while they renovate and get new ones. Very Blahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....so here is my new coaster...it should brighten things up:
And the back:
I was inspired by all the beauties I have seen on other blogs...like this one and this one. Hopefully soon enough I will be brave enough to try the second one.
I also made these place mats for my grandmother that loves roosters. I have a dilemma though. I really think they need to be quilted to hold their shape when washed....my dilemma is whether or not I can quilt them now that they are finished. If I pin them really good do you think it would do okay or get really wonky on me. The pattern called for you to sew right sides together and turn...hence no binding or raw edges. I think they look fine as is....I just worry about them getting really wonky in the wash.
Back with more soon.
