Planet Pearl Living

The sun shines brightly , the skies seems clear  but man o man is it cold or what!! Dh and I went out for a quick grocery run and I came back with my teeth clattering. I never really liked Winter anyway   and I can’t wait for the  summer sun. Every time I get a chance, I try to stay in the warmth of my home as close as possible to the heater . And yes , there has been a lot of crocheting .I made these coasters and decided to write down the pattern and do a picture tutorial too for the benefit of absolute beginners.
