Something for the weekend

It's Bank Holiday weekend and the sun is shining! makes a change in my neck of the woods.
I loved these cute coasters as soon as I saw them and couldn't wait to make some.



Of course I shouldn't digress I should finish the wips I have on the go but I couldn't resist


The reason being I was expecting a few visitors and I hadn't got enough coasters!


 I managed to hook a few before the visitors arrived and one of my friends took three of them with her when she left, 'I need coasters for my caravan and these are just the right colour for my décor!' Of course I was happy to let them go I love making things for my friends.


Which meant of course I had to hook some more.  Quick and easy the perfect Bank holiday weekend project.

Thank you Ana for the pattern and inspiration.

These little coasters weigh in at  7 grams each 

made from the cotton stash





Have a great weekend everyone and for those of you in England make the most of the sunshine while it lasts!

  15. I love them! So pretty. Dammit, Linda! Something else I HAVE to make and put everything else on hold. Ha-ha! Crochet just makes you do that sort of thing. I really like the brown ones. I must make myself a set in browns immediately!
