Sometimes, in fact quite often, I question my sanity over my desire to make more than one of something, especially as each one has so much work involved from designing it to the finished creation…BUT…to eventually end up making 12 !?! six place-mats & six coasters (each and every one slightly different too) then hand quilt them all…and, as if that wasn’t enough I added tiny hand stitched flower borders to them all as well..not to mention hand stitching the binding down…I might have to think about upping my hourly work rate from a penny an hour…..;-/
….obviously I still didn’t think that was enough….So, off I went again…..
In case you had any doubts about the 12……
Perhaps, I’ll just sit and rock quietly in a corner for a while….;-)
Absolutely adorable. ❤
Aww thank you so much Sarah!
I think I have been counting sheep long enough now though, I’m sure I can hear my button tins rattling…?!? it’s been a while and routing through them for my next creation will make a nice change 😉
🙂 Looking forward to seeing what magic you conjure with your button tins…
Me too! I have a few ideas, not sure which one I’ll start with first….:-)
Its so nice!
Thank you so much Riya ! 🙂
Wonderful work! I really like these a lot. Your creative talent seems to go on forever – I am in awe. 🙂
Good Morning Jackie! 🙂
Thank you so much for your lovely comment. I love your new picture it must be pretty cold right now in your neck of the woods, but it looks like you have that covered in your snugly hood ;-D
I’m so glad you like my new Gravatar! It’s very cold right now so you are right about that. I love the coat I’m wearing in the picture! It keeps out the cold better than any winter coat I have ever had. 😀
It really suits you! I bet is keeps you feeling toastie even in the chilliest of weathers! 😉

A pay rise?! Any one would think we weren’t in the Victorian Age any more! You have my admiration for even attempting more than one of the same creation. I have no such self disciplne which is probably why nothing matches in my house….
LOL! I know…. what was I thinking???…quite above my own station to expect more ;-D To be honest, everything in our house is much the same, a complete mismatch of creations/art work and my Dearest’s carpentry skills on show in various cupboards and drawers – this is only the second time I have ventured into doing sets of things. I think I am much happier going for single creations even if they have many different parts to them! 🙂
