Special Friend....

When a special friends b'day rolled around this week I must admit I was a little stumped with what to make her... You see, this special friend is pretty amazing, a real inspiration - especially on the crafting front... It's nothing for her to whip up a dress that looks like its come straight out of a catalogue and she's often making (and wearing) gorgeous pieces of clothing that shes simply 'made-up', without even needing a pattern... Shes also an amazing cook, crochets and knits, dabbles in gardening and so, so much more....
 
So I got to thinking, its been ages since I sat at my trusty old sewing machine, I guess with a newborn in the house some things just seem to get forgotten about.... I did start on a knitted project for my friend but for some reason that just didn't feel right so I grabbed some gorgeous hand printed fabrics from my stash and got to making some 'rustic' looking coasters for my very special friend...

I can picture these fitting in just perfectly at her home - steaming hot cups of tea resting on them...

Happy B'Day Caz-y, you truly are an inspiration... xx
 
The idea that I used for the coasters was from the book 'Last Minute Patchwork Gifts' and the fabrics were by 'Prints Charming' and 'Yardage Designs' - 2 amazing Australian designers....
