A year for coasters!

If you're a regular reader of my blog you may have noticed my pack rat collection ways. It seems like every once in a while I become obsessed with one item (jewelery, mugs, salt and pepper shakers, tea pots, etc) and go on a buying binge! Ever since moving in september I seem to be accumulating coasters and I have a sneaking suspicion that coasters will be my addiction for 2011 - especially after seeing the amazing triangle sewn coasters over at purl bee:

Oh my! Those colours and fabrics are to die for! I just love how they look all together! I'd love to make a plethora of them then pick and chose some to lay out like a piece of patchwork quilt as a fancy trivet or table runner! And hey - they are all for the sake of protecting furniture so it's not like this is just another frivolous addiction...or at least that is what I will tell myself....what do you think of them?


  1. Pretty cute! I haven't posted pics of mine yet, but I sewed a bunch of patchwork ones for our place (and a friend's) - I love sewn coasters!

  2. Coasters are a good obsession because they're generally small and flat - much easier to store than teapots!
