Coasters by eamylove

I figured you all deserved
an inspiring post after my rant on Samsung the other day.
(thanks for letting me vent though!)

Amy DeCesare of eamylove
is one of my Top 5 favorite bloggers.
The way she writes about her projects
and her sewing skills inspire me to
make each project as careful and beautiful as I can.

She designed these lovely coasters
which you can find here

The purple fabric squares are
leftover pieces from one of the Anita Vacation Totes I made.
(pictures to come of that shortly!)

As a matter of fact,
Amy's coaster idea came from the perfect 3" squares 
that are left from the AVT after cutting the corners to box the tote.
(Way to recycle, Amy!!)

I actually made these coasters for my sister,
but wanted to showcase how cute 
these are with a nice cool glass of pink lemonade on the front porch.
(I'm really sorry to tease my friends from the Southern Hemisphere with this
warm, sunny photo shoot)

I can't wait to make another set of these.

It was also fun trying one of the decorative stitches on my beloved Josie.

and how about another view?

Here they are all tied
and ready to be gifted.

Thank you, Amy, for coming up with such 
a neat idea!!
I love them!!

And just for posterity,
another sweet shot of the lemonade.

So what are you waiting for?
Head on over HERE.
And when you're done,
stop for a visit at Amy's
and tell her I said hello!
