Crowing: Café Brun Coasters...

  Cafe Brun Coasters by Sewing Daisies



  Café Brun Coasters are my latest attempt at 'crowing'...

(crochet & sewing)









I am suffering from OCD ...(Ongoing Crowing Delight).

A condition not helped by the fact that I am





 Cafe Brun Coasters by Sewing Daisies






 I don't get it,

I have cocktail umbrellas, a bean slicer thingie

 and a fondue set,

but no coasters.

To remedy the situation,

I copied

the basic workings of the

Kaffe Fusion Blanket.

 2x 5'"charm squares sewn together...

(wrong sides together & turned out)

with a line of 

blanket stitch

around the edge for the crochet.

I had every intention

of sewing the crochet motif to the fabric square

but I forgot.

(a common symptom of OCD).

So to attach the crochet motifs, I used


'Wash'n Wear'





How practical that is I don't know, I guess I just have to wait and see.

If you were wondering about the crochet motif...

You are right,

you have seen it before.



It's from Edie Eckman's

lovely book

'Beyond the Square'

(motif 93).
