Well, I had a random burst of energy and creativity the last 2 days, so I came up with 2 new patterns!

Watermelon Coasters
Free pattern is available on my blog!

I am currently making a set of these as a Christmas present for a friend, but I guess you could say I've got watermelon on the brain! I have been craving watermelon sorbet the past few days (not the easiest thing to find) so, of course, while thinking of what to make for Christmas prezzies, these came to mind!

I feel like the seeds may have come out slightly crooked... am I crazy or does anyone else notice it as well? Anyone have a different method of doing watermelon seeds than just embroidered on with black yarn?

Christmas Striped Mug Cozy
Free pattern is available on my blog.

I am participating in a swap on ravelry (Christmas themed), and one of the items we are supposed to give is a mug cozy. I was looking around for patterns that wouldn't need a button, but couldn't find any that had the bottom part and were easy for me to read. So I made one! As a side note... I just noticed these are the same colors as my watermelon coasters. I guess I really do have watermelon on the brain!

Anyways, I also want to make a snowman coaster (to use as stocking stuffers), and stockings (to do the stuffing), as well as about 500 other things I've got running through my brain right now! why oh why did I have to drink so much coffee this morning? If my brain could run, it would probably beat Usain Bolt with the way its going right now...
Thanks for looking!

Ooh, thank you. I'm going to try the mug cosy soon.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
