As promised, but slightly late… here are some action pics of my cute sewn coasters from the coaster swap. After a long day of selling my clutter in a collaborative yard sale with my friends (and eating delicious baked goods) I needed a cold drink. We headed for the Party Zone in the LCBO which is where you’ll find pre-mixed cocktails so that you can start the party pretty much the minute you exit that place.
I was excited to break out the new coasters this weekend for the first time! Don’t you think they look really cute with the glasses, the pink pomegranate martini and my faux-wood tray? I also purposely included the Canada Dry club soda in the pictures as a cultural reference point. And in case you had any doubts, my friend and I managed to polish off the bottle of pom-tini in about 1.5 hours.ery
This past month I participated in a craft swap, organized by Donna and Sara at Kindred Crafters. I know I’ve said I got bored with swapping for a while, but this sounded really fun, and who can’t use more coasters? Actually, I don’t think I had any coasters!
Now check out this most wonderful assortment of goods that my amazing swap partner, Sazzie, sent to me all the way from England! It made me blush when I opened it because I certainly wasn’t expecting this amount of extras, and also because I didn’t send that many extras. I sent one. Just one measly extra it was a matching bar towel to go with the coasters I made. My limited knowledge of craft etiquette tells me that I will have to find a way to even things out…
You can see more of the coasters and other neat stuff that was sent in the swap in the flickr group. I will add more pics of the coasters and the fabric tray to flickr tonight, when I put these in action.
