Ready to mail

The coasters I embroidered during the government shutdown are all sewn together. Here is a photo that shows each design with its backing fabric.

And here they are ready to mail!


The fifth set was a little off centered. I should have pulled threads out of the linen to make the coasters all exactly the same size and help me with the placement of the motifs. I'll definitely do that next time. In the meantime, we get to keep these!



  1. these are lovely Margo and i am sure will be greatly loved, good to see you are keeping a set for yourself.

  2. these are very elegant and pretty, Margo. I would be thrilled with a lovely handmade gift like this. and btw, I think the ones you are keeping for yourself are my favorite! They make me think of dandelions in summer :)
