This is a Pansy coaster from Misty Mountain - took ages to sew out as there are over 37,000 stitches in it. I've made this for my sister in law who will be arriving on Tuesday with Trev's brother Craig and Trev's Mum Barbara. Mum will be staying with us and Craig and Ros and their daughter (22) will be staying in town. Everyone will be here Christmas day along with Amy and Steve and girls.


Ros absolutely loves Pansies and grows magnificent displays every years down in Canberra. I think she'll get a real surprise when she sees these. I've only made 1 so far - the other one is in the machine as I write. Love Chris
