Something new!

With the help of my brother-in-law, I now have my very own button that you can put on your blog page. I have had the picture since I started my blog but now it is a button! See it there on the left?
Go ahead and grab the code! 

Last Friday I started working on a new project but didn't get very far. 
Remember these tiny HST? 
Several people ask what I would be making using them.

I worked on a bunch more 1" HST and several 2" HST and made them into these.

Christmas coasters using the tutorial from here:

Instead of using 4 of the little 2" stars in one coaster, I used each one separately with a border. The stars are made with Fairy Frost by Kaufman and the border, backing, and binding fabric is from my stash. I mix matched the sets making great handmade Christmas gifts. It sure feels good to get some gifts off the list. 
Update: The final count of shoe boxes we collected and packed for Operation Christmas Child was 2616! What a great ministry!
I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Hey there! Happy Thanksgiving! Love your new button and have it on my blog side bar - Hugs

  2. How fun! Those coasters are truly adorable.

  3. Love those Christmas coasters. Great idea to use one small block in center and adding a border to the size you want. Really makes the block stand out.

  4. Your coaster sets are wonderful!


Sweet sentiments
