52 Crafts in 52 Weeks – Week Twenty Eight

Hello everyone!  I am so excited to be back and sharing again after being offline for a few days.  So far September has been a very busy month for us – I didn’t get to as much planting as I had hoped last month, so I have had to spend a good few extra hours sowing, building and weeding this week. 

And I have also enjoyed some crafting on the cold and rainy days.  I’m hoping to have my Christmas gift list planned before the end of the month so I can get creating before the rush of the festive season. 

I love giving homemade gifts to people, even if they’re small.  This week’s craft is a delightfully simple and wonderfully fun one - here is a set of four spring coasters I made from pretty fabrics from my stash.  (Idea taken from Crafts Beautiful Magazine, April 2013) Of course I could never bring myself to use them to rest my coffee mug on, but I am sure the recipient (whoever she may be) will find a way to display them. 
To be honest, I just so enjoyed making them that I never even thought of using them as coasters!

What have you been busy with in September?  Any new things you’ve been doing?

Have a wonderful weekend and may you be blessed:-)
