I would like to give this a whirl too. I have made coasters before and, like mug rugs, the possibilities are endless!

Rozhearts,
Your package has arrived! I love these leaves with threadpainting veins. What lovely coasters they are. Thanks so much. I'll add a photo in a few minutes.

Yours are almost ready to be sent, but now I'm rethinking. Maybe I should start over.

ETA ... Camera batteries are dead and I don't know how to resize on my phone. I'll try again after work.

It is the joy of these swaps that I love.

I finally used a voltmeter to find 4 batteries with enough charge to take a photo. So sorry for the delay. Again, these leaves are delightful. Smile
I also included a key chain and a postcard in the photo. Thanks again for all Roz. These leaves are so timely. We're watching ours turn colors and begin to fall now.

The bottom right leaf is back-side up, so everyone can see the stitching even better. Love that variegated thread!

Hi Kim, WOW I have opened your parcel parcel today, actually it arrived on Wednesday but I have been dealing with my poor old Dad over the past few weeks going from house to house.
Thank you so much they are absolutely wonderful and the little tote an extra bonus. I love the colours and the use of the batik fabric. They are also very well stitched. Great work.
Thank you again I love them.

sewnso: sorry but I did not have a computer at home for a few days. My daughter in grad school needed to borrow it until her new one was delivered. Yes, I did receive the coasters and they are just so pretty. Thanks so much and again sorry not to acknowledge right away.

Received my lovely coasters from catwm27 today. They are sooooo cute. Apples with a leaf attached. I think they are made of felt. Just a perfect fit for me. We have an apple orchard and there are a lot of apples around here especially at this time of the year. Thanks Nancy.Smile
