Golden Holly & Poinsettia Mug Rug/Coasters...since I am not a huge fan of Red & Green...I decided to do these with Gold Metallic & Beige fabrics...The print is actually a Poinsettia print that I think works well here...I am wondering about the green leaves though...The last photo is the BACK of the Holly Coaster..what do you think Cuties? Golden or Red & Green...hmmmThanks for peeking!

These are absolutely breath-taking in either the gold and beige or the green and red! How would I go about getting this pattern? I would not have time to do them this year but I would absolutely love to have them for next year!

Love them either way, the touch of green is also a nice alternative.
I still didn't get to make mine but Miss Chris made me some as part of her wonderful Christmas luncheon gifts. (very lucky me :-))

Just beautiful, impeccable work! I'm also not a very big fan of red & green, but green and gold or red and gold gives a touch of class in my opinion. Love them!

oooohhh these are lovely too!
Actually we dont have much red and green at Christmas either. We usually go for white and gold at the dinner table and baby blue, baby pink and white on the tree. Looks so delicate

Now I have seen these I think I like these best, they will match our decor too!

I have a real fondness for red anytime and of course with green for Christmas, so those are probably my favorite, but the gold and white or beige are so elegant. I agree with the others that it would probably depend on the rest of the decor. I also like the corner of a placemat idea that Sharon had.

These are beautiful, Kim! Just another idea for you - I think these would be great as a corner for a place mat - having the design extend partially off one corner so that one corner is the outline of the holly or poinsettia. What a lovely placemat that would be! So 3 corners would be square and one corner would be the shape of the coaster. You do such lovely work! Bravo!

Like you, I would lean towards the beige and white but seeing we are moving away from the traditional, perhaps a pale nil green would add interest for the leaves?
You know, dragonflyer, you are teasing us with these stunning designs but we cannot get our hands on them :-) !! I am guessing you are digitising them yourself and 10 marks to you for they are very beautiful. Is this work part of a course/tutorial you are doing? I am totally intrigued....

Thank you Bev...a pale green would probably be lovely, too...Thanks for your kind words, too...I am digitizing them myself and it is not part of a course or tutorial....just for fun!

I like the white better than the red for the flower and I like it with green leaves. The jury is out on the white holly. Both would really depend on the rest of the decorating theme. The design is lovely and would look good in whatever color is chosen.

BOTH it all depends what the other decor is like. I can see this color with snowmen and snowflakes, while green and red with santas, gingerbread and the like.

I like the green leaves here, really brings out the beige flower.

Some people decorate with the traditional red/green colors, while other use the beige white. I think it is a personal preference. Both are equally pretty.
