I enjoy the challenge of making something up as I go along.
Melody had a link to this pattern on her blog.
I was gifted the cotton after showing a family member the pattern. They had a friend who loves nothing better than sharing her stash. I have been the recipient of some lovely crafty items from this lady before. I received two balls of this lovely cotton that is made in Australia. It was so lovely to crochet with. I ended up making 8 of these coasters. 4 for us here at Kainga and 4 are wrapped up for Ainsley and Julian. I didn't worry about doing the embroidery on them. I did add a extra row before doing the finishing round as I wanted them a little bigger.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all the Mum's.
