Today was (Fabric) Craft Monday (CM3). Yarbs made out like a bandit! We made her 8 coasters:
Aren’t they lovely?! 4 have light blue backs and the other 4 have pink backs, all with the blue coral front. They are lightly padded and very adorable, in my opinion. She evidently has no coasters, which seems so odd to me! I have had so many sets given to me as gifts. I guess we have different kinds of friends.
And we also made 4 napkins:
(Sorry, this photo needs to be rotated, and I don’t know how!)
We sewed 2 coordinating fabrics together, and then topstiched all the way around in brown. Well, I did all the sewing, Yarbs was my helper – cutting, pinning, flipping right side out, and ironing. She also became quite the middle part stuffer of the coasters.
But all that work made her very, very tired:
(Again, needs to be rotated.)
I think I can see a little drool coming out of her mouth 😉
Fun times – it really is so great that Yarbs and I can see each other so often now! We really are making up for lost time
P.S. I think I have fixed the weird timing / dating that had been occuring on my blog. I guess all the times on WordPress are automatically UTC / GMT, and I just figured out (thanks, Internet! You so smart!) that TX is currently on Central Daylight savings time, which is UTC+5 hours.
