Coaster Rica

A post about my travel to foreign lands?! Sadly, no..... as I have never set foot out of the motherland, hoo. (Ahem... I hope Somebody is reading this!!)

Then is that a typo in the post title ? No!!

This is the project I promised to share with you. I am sorry I am a day late. My son is going on a class trip and I was busy helping him pack his bags.

But before that let me welcome Elena from Sew in love with Craft. Thank you for joining us.

I am on one of my "Utility" kicks again, which means whatever I make has to be pretty as well as useable. This time I am on a Coaster run and this is the first set I made.

Isn't that a cute pattern? I just love the strawberry and cream combination. I have used acrylic yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook.

If you like this pattern you can find it here at Favecrafts.

Some more delicious photos:

I just love "instant gratification" projects like these. Of course it is a different feeling, from the sense of achievement when you complete a large project.

I tried the same pattern in a different colour combination.

Which one do you like?

I had mail ordered some yarn which I received yesterday. A lot of yarn, well okay a ton of it actually! I will share my stash with you in a couple of days after I am done sorting them.

This morning I saw a squirrel on the tree outside my bedroom window. Can you spot it in the pic below?

No? Okay, take a closer look. 

See you later, crocheters
Bye, Love xxx
