In my last post, I was hoping for rain and now we have it! DH thinks I'm nuts for wanting it to rain, but at least Christine seems to share my view :) Besides being good for nature, and washing that horrible dust off, it's now almost 9 pm and there's a good chance it'll still be raining when I go to bed. I love listening to the sound of rain. We live on the highest floor so can hear the rain on the roof.

Today I went rummaging in my fabric stash, took out my sewing machine and made these. They are coasters for my friend who has her birthday on Saturday. I followed these instructions. They were easy to make, until I got to the part where I had to flip them over, but I managed that too. I think my problem was that I used fabric that was too thick.

Those are fantastic! I HAVE to give those a go. I'm all fingers and thumbs with this sort of thing but they're just too cute NOT to!

That's a great blog you found too. Thanks for the link, I've added it to my list so I can get a better look later. I love the softie dress ups!

Those are so cute!! The rain turned into snow this morning but fortunately there wasn't really any accumulation. It's been grey all day but hopefully we get a bit more rain.

The coasters are lovely! I might have to give them a try, if I ever "find the time" :-)

Your coasters are adorable. I love the fabrics you chose. I love listening to the rain while I'm going to bed too.

The coasters are very cute, so clever and such a lovely gift idea.

Still no rain here in Wales, we really need some, I can't believe I am watering plants in April, it is crazy!
