Since coming back from holidays last week I've been making one of these a day. What with all the other things I do it's a miracle I get time to do these. Anyway these are for my annual ladies luncheon at Christmas. They are FSL Poppy coasters from EmbroiderybyTM. I made these in the 4x4 hoop but could have done two in a larger hoop, just trying to conserve the WSS. Love Chris

I admire not only your skills, but also your ablilty to plan ahead and actually start working on Christmas projects early! They sure are cheerful and I look forward to seeing your table in December.

When you do FSL coasters, do you put a backing on them at all? I often wonder if condensation from glasses would disolve a little of the wss and make the coasters tacky or stick to the glass.

Thanks Penny. I haven't put a backing on these, but you could. I'll have to wait and see whether or not any of the Champers that may wet them does affect them. Love Chris

Lovely coasters. Glad you made them for yourself. FSL is just way out
Of my league. You are one busy lady, Chris.

Hi Mary, thanks for commenting. I don't think I'm any busier than most Nanna's these days. Grandparents here in Australia seem to be the 'go to' people for helping out - as most couples work these days before and after school care is so expensive!!!!!!!!!! Love Chris

Hi Chris, yes it is nice to be useful. I have a bag of 'mending' courtesy of my grand daughter.

Hi Laura, well, you know we are all busy, I just do some when I can. I wish I could stay home more, but because of picking up kids from school it breaks into the day! Love Chris

It's beginning to look a BIT like Christmas, everywhere you go... They turned out lovely, especially nice on the red background - have a red tablecloth?

These are lovely! I too have found when using a larger hoop I do waste WSS. Hugs, Suzanna

Thanks Suzanna, unfortunately everything we do with sewing costs a lot of money! Love Chris

Chris they turned out great. I found that often I have left overs WSS from the larger projects to fill the 4x4 hoop. You did well.

I have collected months worth of WSS and cut them all into nice shapes yesterday and will sew them all together with WSS thread that I’ve got. I ordered 2 more reels from Echidna in Queensland Sunday arvo and they are already on their way! Love Chris

How long does it take to make one considering the manual color changes?

There are about 25,000 stitches Roberta -they take over an hour!! I stuffed one up - almost finished - and realised the thread wasn’t catching properly when I turned it over it was a bird’s nest - so into the bin and started again! Love Chris
