A Coaster for a Friend ...


I am taking part in a craft swap with some friends. One of the criteria is to include at least one handcrafted item. So I decided to make two little cross stitch pieces. One is picture below, a coaster. I wanted to use this design with the cat bcuz my friend has cats. The second piece that I will do, I am going to be making into a large bookmark. Both of the designs, although not very big, include full cross stitches, fractional stitches, back stitching, french knots and metallic floss. 

Here is the coaster piece as soon as I finished the stitching ...

Until Next Time,
