Coasting into Christmas

Some rather quirky, nativity-themed fabric leftover from making a tree skirt became several sets of coasters and even a trivet or two. Coaster use isn't as important in the non-sweaty seasons, but they add a bit of color to a coffee table, and it makes one feel industrious to use up scraps to create something useful. Joelle Hoverson shows how to make these in Last-Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts.

What else are we going to do while we wait for Christmas?

What's that? Relax with a glass of wine and some light reading? Good idea!

Love these...don't you just want to make everything in that book?

I've recently been enjoying a similar (but different fabric)set that I was gifted - while relaxing with a glass of wine and old favorite Christmas movies!
