My friend recently bought her first house and moved into it this past month. On Friday, we went to visit her and i was always taught that it's a good thing to bring a house-warming gift. In Kazakhstan, i was taught to bring chocolates the first time you went to someone's house. I still apply this rule today. Who doesn't want chocolate?I also wanted to make her something. As a great host, i know my friend always have drinks ready for her guests. She even frosts beer glasses ! So, i made her 8 coasters, from a few different fabrics, so that they all could match with her place. The pattern was loosely based on Denyse Schmidt's book, and i've made coasters before. It's also a great way to 'use what you have.'
Now J wants some for us, so that'll be my next project for the Sew? I knit! group: it's all about projects for the kitchen and/or cooking.
