What are you most proud of? This is such a pretty little coaster - it is simple to put together, all done by hand (except attaching the binding). It is a lovely little project when you have a spare hour.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use felt - it is easy to stitch and won't fray. Also I stitched the lamb in place before adding the blanket. The embroidery is a very simple chain stitch and lazy daisy stitch - but you could use any stitches you like - the more lop-sided they are the more 'rustic country' the coaster will look. And with all Patchsmith projects - have fun!

Cute :) I agree with felt use. I use felt for my embroidery projects and I love it!

Felt is brilliant - I also find it good when I don't want the background to show through or when tackling small pieces of applique. Glad you like the little coaster - it was really quick to do. (You made me giggle with your 'fun/fan' comments below.)

Very cute. Think I'll make one. Thanks for the inspiration. PS I love the lopsided="rustic country" comment! ;O)

Thank you. The "rustic country" look is so forgiving of all of our lopsided stitches and unmatched seams!

Very cute! Just coming back from a trip to Scotland I'm absolute in tune with sheep and daffodills. :) Inger
