Lavender Stars

I am so excited, Amanda from Crafty in the Med has awarded me the One Lovely Blog Award. 

 This is my second award and I am thrilled that she likes my blog as I just Love hers. It is certainly a warm feeling to know that somebody so far away is thinking of you! I will soon get down to nominating my favorite blogs.

A warm welcome to Goty and Daiana from El Crochet de Daiana. Daiana has some lovely dainty crochet items on her blog.

Don't you think Google Translate brings us closer to each other?  It is fun to translate and read blogs in so many different languages.

And now...continuing with my favourite topic - coasters. As crockery is available in different styles, colours and shapes, I thought why not use an unusual colour and design for my coasters. So ta-da, here are my Lavender Stars!

I have used Bliss Knitting cotton again.

I think they look kinda cute.

The five-pointed star was my favourite doodle during boring college lectures. It can still be found in some corner of my diary, my recipe book, even my grocery list. Give me a pen and the star is the first thing I doodle. Maybe that is why I liked this pattern.

Do you like them or do you think they look quaint?

Have a nice day!

Even more coasters

Hello, Beautiful people. Got the Monday Blues?

I still remember that regardless of how wonderful the weekend was, I always looked forward to getting back to work on Monday. I loved my job. I really miss the bank, my colleagues, the endless cups of  tea. I confess I am a tea totaller......??? what is that?! Ha ha, it means I am a total tea addict. And any good tea cup needs a good coaster.

So back to my current obsession... coasters. Here are some more specimens:

Isn't that a fantastically dainty cup! And a square saucer... a first for me. Makes me want to have an elegant English tea party with my girlfriends. Maybe when we go back to Mumbai.

The colour of these coasters may seem boring, but in fact I think it is the ideal colour for coasters as tea/coffee stains won't show up so easily. I like the squarish design too.

What have you been up share! Love to hear from you so don't forget to write to me.
