Raggedy Fall Coasters

I love these coasters and they were very easy to make!
I made 6 of them using Moda Flannels  http://www.modafabrics.com/
Cut 12 squares of fabric 6 1/2 by 6 1/2.
Next cut your quilt batting I used Warm & Natural it's my favorite. 4 1/2 by 4 1/2.
I used 2 squares of batting on each one and they are real plump.
Place the quilt batting in between the fabric squares on each .
Now just make a big X , sewing from one corner to the other.
Sew a 1" border around each square, that keeps the raggedy part from crossing the stitching line.
Last cut slits around the entire outside of each coaster. Be careful not to cut into stitching line.
The smaller the cuts the more raggedy it will be.
Toss into the washer and then dryer and you will have raggedy coasters.
I love setting my coffee cup on mine and even soup bowls!

Words To Live By

"The way to keep happiness:
Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry.
Live simply, expect little, give much.
Scatter sunshine.
Forget thyself, think of others.

Two Puppies and A Wedding

Well we did it !
Got our baby girl married, everything was absolutely beautiful and she told me over and over again it was the happiest day of her life! She had a glow about her the whole day through and was bubbling over with love! It is truly a wonderful thing to be young and in love there is nothing in life quite like that time in your life as a young woman. We love you both Brent & Tara
I learned alot myself through all this wedding stuff ,that little girls looove weddings and that life go's by so quickly you better savor every moment one day your getting married and the next thing you know you have grandkids and your wandering what happened to all the time in between? And one more thing, all that love was contagious and I thank every one who helped
from the bottom of my heart.

So we were going along getting ready for the wedding and Tara's dog had puppies on the first day of fall, they are adorable the mom is a west highland terrier and the dad a miniature schnauzer they are rapidly growing and getting cuter every day!
