I really like the combination of these colours. It didn't occur to me that they would go together until I saw the balls sitting together in my project basket. I just used the simple coaster pattern from crochetspot that I've used for other coasters. Do you like these colours together?

What is it with the colour yellow? These coasters I listed in my online shop yesterday have more views than most things in my shop, with the exception of the yellow flower coasters! I've ordered some yellow 4 ply and it should arrive any day now so I can make more things in yellow, it seems to be the colour people like to look at right now! These yellow doily coasters are the same as the green ones I made, with a 3.5mm hook and 7 dc in the last round clusters instead of 8.

Here's a picture of some of the 6 white hanging stars I made for my friend Tanya to hang on her Christmas tree. They're just basic granny stars, similar to the pink ones I made but without the flower in the middle. They're just 5 granny clusters in the middle. Now I just have to work out how I'm going to send these in the post!

I made this pink granny star with 4 ply cotton and a 3mm hook, I made it because a friend has asked me to make her some Christmas hanging stars. I didn't follow a pattern, but basically did a 'granny star' with a flower in the middle instead of a granny cluster. There are 3 rounds, the 2nd round has a ch 1 sp in between the corners, the 3rd round has clusters of 4 in the corners, and (ch 1 sc ch) 1 into the ch 1 sp. That's just in case I forget how to make them next year! I can't wait for my new order of cotton to arrive from Bendigo so I can make these stars in other colours!

I posted last month about our old rose bush coming back to life after some much needed TLC. Well, now it has rewarded us with flower! And what a lovely surprise to find it's red! Very flushed with rosy colour, indeed!

I made these sunny yellow coasters to use the 8 ply cotton I have on hand, they're a simple pattern from crochetspot.com that I've used before. For some reason they're proving popular in my shop with lots of views, I think I'll have to make some more in different colours! Or maybe its the cheerful yellow that's appealing? I'm thinking of ordering more cotton and some 4 ply yellow is on the list so I can make other coasters in the same colour as these!

I made another doily this time in pale pink, I'm hoping to order more cotton in different colours so I can do more. I used the pattern by Maggie Weldon which is available for free at Best Free Crochet. I used 4 ply cotton and a 2mm hook.

I really like these square coasters I made to put in my shop, I wonder if anyone else will like them? I chose the bright pink for a distinctive look. I used a 3mm hook and 4 ply cotton. Let me know what you think!
