Let It Snow!

There'll be Snowflakes at my house for Christmas, regardless of what the weatherman says.

I ran across a red and white spread which I had crocheted many years ago, and stuck it in a drawer,never to be finished or used,so I decided to ravel it out and make something useful from the materials.I had been making dish cloths of yarn, and needed a few more red ones since they are so cheery and bright for the Holidays.That's when I stumbled across the unfinished spread.As I was unraveling the white, I found that I had used something other than yarn.It seems that I had used a stretchy fabric that holds a bed pad snug to the mattress.I had cut it into real narrow strips, and it worked up like yarn. Nevertheless, I unraveled it, and and proceeded to make a few Snowflake Coasters. What a neat idea. Now that is something that will definitely get used on a daily basis this winter. This is one example of a neat idea that produced a usable product from reclaimed materials. Now that's my kind of project.


  1. They're really cute Sue.
    And no new purchase of supplies, even better!
    I'm trying to teach myself to crochet, not having much luck!

  2. So pretty! Makes me wish I could crotchet too.

  3. Thanks ladies. I crochet by eye. I play some piano by ear. I never liked following any kind of written directions. I have never figured why.Same for baking. I'd rather do it my way.Trial and error. If all else fails, I will read the directions.

  4. These are adorable. I never learned to crochet, but I admire the finished projects of those that do. :)
