Soaking It Up....

.....with this small set of coasters that I made for a good friend. They should help with the drips from her glasses of lemonade.
And for me, some knitted sponges. It is a silly little project, but I am so tired of my stinky old sponges. I do run them through the washer, or nuke them in the microwave, but these are much more aesthetically pleasing to me and there are enough here for me to wash happily away with a clean one every day, or two clean ones if I am feeling especially virtuous on the front lines of the never ending dish washing skirmishes.

Pretty coaster!!
You're right Ellen. I often miss my coasters somewhere else and no time to take care or look for it anyway..
Maybe if I made it myself like the way I want my coaster looked like(like you did) then I'll more be responsible totheir 'excistence' :)
Great idea, Ellen.

Between your projects and your awesome pictures (yes, they are awesome!) I'm inspired. And being in Hawaii with you on my shoulder of course was inspiring as well! And I'm smitten now with the idea of making a Hawaiian quilt or at least a small wall hanging!
