More Coasters!

The yellow coasters above are made using a pattern called 'Norwegian Coasters'. I find the shape is not quite right for me as they are not square. I modified the pattern to suit myself and made the white coasters on the right plus the matching doily which i quite like and makes a nice set. They could even be used on a dressing table as a duchess set but think they would need to be a bit bigger.



 I finished another of the coral coloured coasters that Pammy Sue and Pat liked  to make up the pair. I have enough of that colour to make a matching doily and I am very tempted to do that just to finish the set

 I think I've made about 20 coasters at present so I have gone from 'no' crochet to 'flat out' crochet Lol... Not sure what to do with them all at present but i did think that maybe when (if) my followers get to '20', I will probably do a draw and send some of them to a few followers who would like them. No point passing them on to my family members, although my grandaughters love getting something I've made, none of them are married yet and still live at home with their parents and niether of my d-i-l's are interested in crochet unless it's a crocheted washer for the shower, they love those. So what do you ladies think?? Anyone interested in maybe getting some coasters as a gift?? Do leave me a comment with any ideas you may have.

Hi Kate, not cheeky at all... That is the idea, leave a commment and you will go into the draw. I was going to wait for more followers but if anyone else is having as much trouble as i am following other blogs, there may not be anyone else that would like to be a follower. so you, Pat and Pammy Sue are all in the draw.... :))
