Presents for all!!
Now I am not a huge fan of doilies but I have made coasters for my home to save my furniture. When I saw a picture of apple coasters I knew I had to have some. Most patterns were just circular and I wanted apple shaped so I have made one up inspired by my frosty flakes pattern in that it uses stitches of various sizes to shape things. So I thought you guys might like it too. So everyone gets a present on Lou’s birthday!!! Enjoy.
