Pretty neat, huh? This is a new idea for wine coasters that I found on this tutorial. I have been making mug rugs to sell at my son in law's tasting room, but lately they haven't been selling all that well. They are rather labor intensive, and I am thoroughly sick of making them. These are much quicker to construct, and make great use of charm packs or scraps of fabric collections you may have left over from other projects.
You can use them as regular coasters if you like, or insert the base of a wine glass into the overlapping sections of fabric. I thought they were pretty darn cute, and plan to make six sets of four and see how they do at the shop.
Lots of baby drama yesterday. I was attempting to do some gardening, and she was trailing around behind me, happy as can be, when she tripped, fell and smacked her little mouth on the bottom step up to my deck. Good grief, what a lot of blood. It was completely terrifying for me, and I rushed her over to the Urgent Care place up the street. No loose teeth, no stitches. She just has a sore mouth and a fat lip. Poor baby. What I wouldn't do to take away any hurt from that precious baby.
We have planned a play date today with a friend who has four (!!!!) grandbabies under the age of 4. We will go to the park, have snacks and definitely lots of fun. Hope that helps make up for the boo boo.
