Wish I had a magic wand so I could wave it and have all my Christmas duties magically done for me! Wouldn't that be nice? I've been busy knitting dishcloths and crocheting these beautiful coasters for Christmas gifts. These coasters are my ultimate favourite coaster pattern, not only because they are extremely fast and easy to do up, but because they are so pretty! I think they are nice enough to also be a little doily. The original pattern is from Jodhi, the Potholder Lady. In her version she has beads on the edge of them, but I'm a little intimidated by the whole "beading" thing, so I just chose to change the colour of the thread to accent the edge. I'm so happy with the way they turned out with the Christmas colours, I will be doing more for sure. I think that they would make a nice little coaster gift set for the teachers this year. The photos of my finished Christmas coasters/small doilies are below.
