Times gone by!

The other day I found a suitcase I'd forgotten about!!! This is full to the brim with old tatted pieces of mine. It's not a huge suitcase and most of the stuff was made for exhibition purposes or just for fun.

I'm going to show you a few of the things I found while I wait for the finish of the first bag!! Actually, it's nearly finished but I had SO many interruptions yesterday it never 'quite' got there!!

Today I'm showing some coasters I made about 15 years ago. I tried to sell these in a local handicraft shop but they didn't sell. I think this was mainly because I asked a realistic price for them of probably around £1.00 an hour of my time!!! Nothing changes - handmade goods just don't get the prices they should do!!!

I've no idea where the pattern is from but the thread is number 20.

Very nice! I especially like the ones on the right. I love the way the small rings attach to the sides of the larger rings. Will these be appearing in your Etsy shop?

Good Morning Jane!! This is a lovely motif! And as always, I love your color choices. Like the third motif, that has lovely muted shades. Thanks for showing these! Have a great day! Oh, I visited your sister's blog. She is off to a great start.

OMG! These coasters are fabulous! All of them. The colour combos are very good. I love the green ones. Perhaps it's a good idea to put them on Esty?
