    Another Christmas Table Mat

    Here's a smaller Christmas table mat & 2 coasters. I have a cousin who is blind and dosen't have much to live on. I made this mat and coasters for her to give as a gift for a friend or family member. Each year I try to make something for her to give as a gift. Last year I crocheted snowflakes out of crochet thread. My cousin used to crochet and quilt years ago when she could see.

    How pretty weasier! What a nice thing to do for your relative. It is very heartbreaking to hear of the loss of her sight.

    I agree wholeheartedly with Gerbie...you are very thoughtful and your gift will be special to her.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Really nice Christmas items. It was so nice of you to make them for someone else to give as gifts to others who are special to her. I really like that triangle pattern. It would be lovely on a round table.
