More coasters.


Just thought I'd show you another set of the coasters I'm making. 

There's something so relaxing about making these!!!

I love the pink ladybirds (or, as they're called in America - ladybugs). 

Actually I think that's a far better name (ladybugs) than ours as they're just NOT birds.

Cute! I've forgotten... do you put something in between, or do you just use two layers of fabric. I have quite a fabric stash that I could use up!

No, nothing in between, Diane. They have 5 layers of fabric. I'll send you the idea via email.

Again you're back on track, doing multiple things at once, making it difficult to keep up with you! I'm enjoying your experiments in color on the tatted squares, and you're doing great renditions of Martha's lovely patterns. These coasters are cute, too. (Interesting to learn there are five layers.) Where in the world did the term 'lady bird' come from?

Well I was back on track but the darn chest thing flared up again at the weekend so more antibiotics!!!
I too wonder where the name ladybird came from. Ladybug is so much better.

Sorry to hear of the flare-up - do try to get more rest!

Thanks to the internet I found this explanation of the lady bird source, Even Shakespeare is mentioned! I have to warn you, though, that you might get a slight headache reading it. You might want to wait until you feel better!
