Oval Coaster

I have designed this little coaster to go under three small oval china dishes that sit on my television stand. We have had a new system that includes a sound plinth and the sub woofers cause the little china dishes to vibrate and so I have made these small coasters to solve the problem.
I have used an antique Coates thread, size 40 in ecru and it measures about 4 inches by 3 inches and I have utilized split rings and split chains to climb out of the rows, so no cutting and fastening off until the end. If anyone would like me to put the pattern into PDF format I will do so.

Lots of sewing and knitting

No tatting recently but lots of sewing. The heart cushion is for my grand-niece and the Scottie dog pin cushion is for my daughter-in-law who is crazy about all things Scottie dog.
I have knitted quite a few Aran jumpers and I am now doing a blanket in squares to use up oddments of wool.
