facebook challenge

My friend Lori, who lives thousands of miles away, threw down the gauntlet the first week of January.  This was the status she posted on facebook:

"Pay It Forward 2011:
I promise to send something handmade/homemade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They must, in turn, post this and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their status. The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011."
Alrighty then... I wanted to embroider or sew something for her, but desired it to be useful for her family.  Finally settled on coasters after I happened to come across these by Jenny @ allsorts.



I went rummaging through my junk ummm, neatly folded & stacked fabrics stash  & found some purple coordinates that were too small to do anything very ambitious...

They were so easy!

(The bottom side of the coaster is the navy background...)

I cranked out 6 in an hour, or so.

Now here they are, all ready to send her way, with ...

(It'll take me longer to package them & stand in line at the Post Office to ship them to Ohio!)
