Another week another make has been completed.
I don’t know about you but I have got into the habit of carrying a little craft project in my handbag so that whenever I’m waiting somewhere (and this mama does a lot of waiting) I can just take out the cross stitch/crochet and do a little bit. This weekend I completed a little cross stitch.
It was one of those freebies that came with The World of Cross Stitching magazine a while back.
What put me off doing it was the horrible plastic gold frame that came with it – urgg! Then I thought that it was the perfect size for a coaster. I sent husbandy off to the craft shop and he came back with this 4×4″ perspex coaster.
I had hoped to put some fabric onto the rear of the cross stitch to hide the stitches at the back of it however there wasn’t enough room between the perspex layers as it is designed to snap together.
So here we are, the finished coaster all ready for a mug of tea 🙂
If anyone is interested check out all the crocheted hexagons that Crochetime received this week for her ‘Crochet for Kidneys’ campaign – so many pretty colours, the blankets are going to look amazing!
Have a great week.
