Putting the Pieces Together

While I'm waiting for my quilting books to come in I decided to work on a puzzle. Since I was off work on the 4th of July it seemed like a good day to start one. The last time we went to Vegas we bought this. (Don't even ask me why - cuz I have no idea!)  So by Wednesday night this is how much I had finished.  Not that much. Too much time in the pool I suppose.

This is what is looked like last night (Thursday)
I did go to my Sewful Sister's meeting.  We did quite a bit of gabbing and laughing.  Lois showed us how to make little coasters and provided all the supplies.  So sweet of her.  This is something that I've been wanting to do forever - okay for at least a year.  I knew they would be easy to sew.  What I didn't realize is how relaxing they are.  No real thinking is needed.  LOL!! 
Have a great weekend!


  1. I finally gave away most of our puzzles, because we never put them together. Cute coasters. I think I'll be making a few sets for Christmas gifts. Enjoy that pool!!!

  2. My mom enjoys puzzles. I usually give her the Lang puzzles for birthdays and Christmas. It is great to be able to relax and laugh with friends! Have a great weekend.

  3. It is good to sit and do a puzzle sometimes. I was given one for my BD last year with a thousand of the tiniest pieces. Put it together over Christmas while my DD2 and family were visiting.
    Thre coasters look like great wee gifts.

  4. Nice job on the puzzle. They can be fun! I think it would be fun to have quilted coasters. But I never sit down to do them either. So, good for you!
