Lacework coaster

I found  a pattern by Kannikar Sukseree (Kanny) in the Parchment Craft Guild Anniversary Book and decided I wanted to do it.  It consisted of two panels of lacework with lovely coloured roses in the middle.  I started off with the lace work and pricked out the first panel without any mistakes but not so in the second so....I continued to finish the first panel and then decided to use the resulting lace in a couple of coasters and here is one.
I also learned that  when I do the next one I will have to stitch the lace to the backing card.  I stuck this one with Perga Glue but of course clicking in the backing panel in has squashed the glue a bit.


  1. This is gorgeous too, super idea to make a coaster with your 'mistake'
    Hope this is shown at Sandown too.

  2. Hi Christine. Yes it will be at Sandown. In fact it has given me an idea to make another 4 and perhaps sell them as a set of six.

  3. Goodness... some patience need there!! Love it Carol.. looks fantastic! xxx
