find somethin' on this blog.

new glasses, new coasters.

Where in the heck has June gone? I've been quietly working away in the studio on some projects that I'll share soon. I've been keeping an eye on most of my regular blog reads every few days or so but am looking forward to business as usual.

Earlier this week I scored a small set of the cutest glassware (thank you Salvation Army) and I thought I should make some coasters to match. Well--kind of. I used some vintage cotton fabric and centered some dumb dots in the middle, quilting them in the quilt as you go style....

I love them. I love my glasses.

I'll be back soon when the heat gets so intolerable that I cannot even stand to be in the swimming pool...I hear it's going to be 90 degrees on Sunday. For those of you in arid zones...Michigan is hot and humid. yuck.

Thanks for stopping!
