DIY Set of Coasters on a Ring - Ho, Ho, Ho and on We Sew Linky Party with giveaway

I'm joining the Ho, Ho, Ho and on We Sew Linky Party this month over at Threading My Way, where Pam has a lovely tutorial for making reusable drawstring gift bags. I love this idea: no waste here, you keep the wrapping too! Pam has a great site full of tutorials and they are very well sorted. So if you're looking for an idea for a present or for yourself, this is a really good place to look!



I thought I'd transform some log cabin blocks into a set of coasters as a present for Christmas. A big ring keeps the coasters together when you're not using them and you can use it to hang them up on a hook in the kitchen as a decoration.


From the 18th of each month this year you can join the Ho, Ho, Ho and on We Sew Linky Party, organised by Fiona at Celtic Thistle Stitiches and Paula at Mud, pies and pins. It's a great way to keep up with our Christmas sewing. Giveaways for the linky parties are the cherries on top!

So happy to have met my Lovely Year of Finishes goal I set at the beginning of the month too (with my Flickr foto, entry 125) with this set of Log Cabin Coasters! This is a finish that means a lot to me, after an unsuccessful January goal. I've warmed up now and am ready for more ALYOFs!

A Lovely Year of Finishes is at Fiber of All Sorts and Sew Bittersweet Designs.

We are also joining this year's Finish-Along at Adrianne's On the Windy Side with our Set of Coasters on a Ring. Our original list for Q1 is here. We've ticked off two now!

  1. They would be handy for summer barbecues, and we have a lot of them around Christmas.
