Recently I did some yarn shopping. I was not too happy with the colors though. I did not get many colors I had in mind. Still I did buy a bag full of yarn ;-)
Yesterday I took out the red and navy blue out of the lot and started making circles.
Ended them off with a shell edging.
Made a loop to it.
And here is what one looks like.
The other one is like this.
Place a small bowl on it and it looks cute.
And yes, use them everyday (you can see it on the mug in the picture) :-)
Actually the writing on the mug reads as "Wish it was Sunday everyday." I always hope it was true! The mug was a gift from my Secret Angel in office an year back.
Making these coaster were addictive and super easy. What I particularly enjoyed was the Shell Edging. Add there was very little weaving in the loose ends involved or to be more precise I just had 2 loose ends to weave in. I used the weaving-in technique I blogged about earlier while I stitched. It did save me a couple of minutes and unnecessary yarn snipping.
