Crazy little me

So I haven't had much to post lately. I've been busy. I promised my mother that I would make these coasters for her for a tea that she is helping to host. Its a decent size event that the old ladies love and this year's theme was quilting. The different ladies host a table and set it with their own china, etc. My mom was doing one, so I made her these coasters in lieu of saucers for her tea cups.

Wow. What a dummy I am!

I hand appliqued the center circles on and then I hand sewed the edges together. They are pieced on both the front and the back. It took forever! They did turn out rather cute, though. The sad thing was that I was up till 1:00 AM on the day of the tea finishing them up, wearing my mother's glasses to see. Sheesh.
