coffee cup coasters


i wrote up my coffee cup cosies pattern a few weeks ago
pat made a great variation, attached cup coasters
she has now even made a set for her grand kids
and taking up her inspiration
i have made myself a set
(i'd made my original full sized set as a birthday present)

a strange variegated green wool
it was 50% acrylic/50% wool
it was an appealing colour as a yarn
horrible texture to work with
but a great finish
thanks pat !

  4. Loveing this idea Lee, I am not a big tea/coffee drinker but I am always finding rings on the table/bench/computer table thanks to my caffiene addicted man, he may get one of these for his birthday I think.
