In an attempt to organise and decorate everything, I have been quietly working away on adding in little cozy corners around my home ,for me to feel inspired and be creative.
So with the help of J, I put together a little blogging nook for myself. I’ve always liked to have a little desk in the corner of our bedroom to read ,write , plan and contemplate.
It is not at all fancy, the table is a hand me down from Steve and the chair is a thrifted gem from the Eco store in Christchurch. But I was extremely happy with how it all came together to serve my purpose.
When we finished working on the space,I was doing my morning devotion with my tea in hand and realised I did not have coasters that went with the space.
So I went stash diving and found this lovely Egyptian cotton my friend Jessyz had gifted me , at one of our meet ups, a very long time ago.
I had tried making many things with this yarn, but nothing made me happy . Each time I would make something, not feel the project, and then frog it and wind it back into the ball.
The best thing about this yarn is that, in spite of the several making and frogging I did, the yarn held its shape without pilling or losing its sheen.
This time, when I tried making these coasters , it made me very happy with how it turned out, that I decided to make a set of four.
I used Laura cotton for the edging which made it go perfectly with my space.

( I do not have the pattern. I saw the picture of the coaster online and kind of made up on my own from the picture and assumed the pattern was by Marinke Slump! Funny thing is, I just now discovered that I made a mistake of who the designer was,as I was writing this post! )
