I am on a little bit of a crochet tip at the moment (as you may well gather from the posts) – and I was delighted to find these little gems of coasters, crocheted from cotton yarn and sold by MariMartin from Madrid on Etsy.
I have a similar pattern I made for some apple coasters – but it is the zesty lime of these that catches my fancy. Yum
Gosh it is cold! … the snow has caused us havoc this past week, on top of record sales on both our sites! We have already gone through our January Stocks of yarn – and have had to order 3 times more tapestry canvas than planned.
I have been stitching into the wee hours – as have my trusty snowed in family up North (thank you) and as the breeze blew in our back door my husband piped up ‘Baby its cold outside’ (-10 actually) and so our new ‘draught excluder’ chart was born!
I used my signature pallette highlighting some of our new icy blues with an intarsia Christmas Jumper meets icicle styled border.. and as it is in 7 count and 110cm long you can stitch it up in no time!. I am hoping to stitch it up in time for Christmas and you can buy the chart
online later this week… maybe you will beat me to the finished product! If you do – be sure to post it on Facebook
and you could win one of our kits this month.
Keep warm … it is the perfect time to curl up with your cross stitch j x
