Turn "Debacles" into "Prep Time" with a few simple Do-Overs!

If at first you don't succeed, try...



Ha HA! Guess what? Those coasters are fixed.

Lots of patience and loving kindness went into the re-sewing, and I'm pleased with how they're going so far.

There are only a couple of downsides as I see them at this stage.

(1) It is possible that some grumbles and eye-rolls pushed past the loving kindness and made their way into the do-overs. (Oh, gross. I didn't mean "eye-rolls" like "egg rolls". I meant it like... you know what I meant. Eye rolls would be disgusting.)

(2) Matthew commented that he likes to have the coasters split open so that guests can enjoy the stuffing as an appetizer. These sewn-up coasters mean the parties are gonna be B.Y.O.-stuffing if that's your thing. Sorry, Matthew.

There are still quite a few coasters left to make. But, this being the second time I've made them, I'm now more sure than I've ever been that there's no! way! I could "make these the day of the party", as Purl suggests. How would that even be possible? I don't know.

What I do know is this: Do-overs are a glorious thing.

Haha! eye-rolls. Altough, some sushi place around here may be serving those. You never know.

As for the coasters... very nice! Great fabric choices.

Yes, I made changes to my blog, thank you. And everyone should make themselves a little Chihuahua. It doesn't shake insessantly or yip, no taking for walks, and it doesn't eat!
