While I was looking through my fabric for the wall hanging, we came across a coaster kit. It seemed perfect for the butterfly embroidery, and it is so easy to put together.

I used the back of the coaster as a template to cut the fabric to size. Once the fabric was in face down, I was able to push the back in until it clicked into place.
They say small things appeal to small minds, but I love the non slip feet that are supplied with the kit.
I am sure I have some paperweights somewhere, unless I have given them away. Just another way of putting embroidery to good use.
Not sure there will be another finish today. If there is, it will only be the sleeve to D's jumper. I have only one more increase to do on the first sleeve. I hope to be able to have a quiet evening knitting. I am determined to get this one finished by the time the boys return from their dads next weekend. Yes, next week is another child free week for me!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

You do some beautiful work and your needles go faster than grease lightening.

I can't wait to see your crazy patchwork made up into a quilt, it should be stunning.

You talking about Sheffield makes me homesick as that is where I come from orginally and I know all the places you talk about.

I love what you have done with the butterfly. We have one that keeps fluttering around infront of our balcony this summer and the other day I found him in one of my cross stitch mags. There we have a new project on my list...
