Today the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and it's a glorious 60 degrees! Ah, the craziness of Spring weather. Every day is an adventure!
I have to admit that I struggle with winter and even rainy days. They tend to give me the blues, so I wanted a project that was cheerful and bright. These flower coasters were perfect!
This pattern is so simple and quick. It consists of only four rounds including the petals of the flowers. You can use so many colors in all different combinations to make them your own! I do have to say that if you choose to make a coaster with four different colors, add some extra time for changing colors and weaving in multiple ends.
