~ 2 more plastic canvas coasters ~

Vince and I were out and about again yesterday running errands (his days off are Friday and Saturday) - we stopped at alot of places, but my favorite was AC Moore.  I picked up a few things: 2 crochet hooks, 2 small decorative paper punches (a butterfly and a flower), a mill-ends bag of bulky yarn, 4 sheets of plastic canvas and a pack of 10 plastic canvas squares.  Oh, and I also bought 3 large jar candles. 

When we got home I made up 2 more coasters.  The one on top I call 'I love my coffee' and the bottom one I call 'Springtime patchwork'.  I think I shouldn't of cut the heart shape out - should of left it as a square.
 

I also wanted to show you how I keep my embroidery threads - a little plastic canvas bobbin.


I think that's it for now - I have to get back to my crocheting.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great crochet day.  :)

  1. Love your WIP's! My cousin does a lot of plastic canvas work and your pictures today reminded me of her. :-)

  2. Oh that is a wonderful idea about the plastic canvas bobbin. I will have to make some for my daughter. She makes friendship bracelets.

    1. I take that back Cris - I do have one p c book that I bought at the Dollar Tree. It's called 'Happy Holidays in Plastic Canvas' by The Needlecraft Shop. I've looked thru it once and the projects look pretty nice. :)

  7. Love the PC thread bobbins! Much better than cutting up old cereal boxes for the cardboard!
