Itchy Fingers!

Since making my 4th of July place mats I've had itchy fingers!
I got the GHook, some Lily Sugar N Cream cotton and made a teacup coaster!

Crochet Tea Cup Coaster

While I was crocheting and dreaming of tea cups
this beauty arrived in the mail from my good buddy Deb at Just Cats.

Glencarry Thistle Tea Cup

It is the beautiful Glencarry Thistle pattern by Foley.
I love the aqua color and it fits just right on the teacup coaster!

I LOVE Mail Call!
Thank you so much Deb.
I promise to enjoy the cup and take good care of it.

Beautiful teacup and the coaster is adorable. What a great project to make. I have no talent when it comes to any of the yarn arts so, I always admire it in others!

I've never seen a tea cup coaster before, and crocheted at that! It's adorable. The cup is simply beautiful! Aqua is one of my favorite colors :)
