I'm seeing some great (and inspirational) crafting going on at the Crafty Christmas Club. I'm especially amazed by the knitted gifts people are whipping up - I know they take hours and hours of work. Meanwhile, I know my time between now and Christmas will be stretched. Work will be really busy, and I have to go to Perth for week. So I've decided on all quick-win projects for Christmas gifts (yes, I finally wrote out my list!). One of these quick win projects was crafty coasters.

|Birdy shapes, ready for stitchin'|
The idea from these coasters came from Pip Lincolne's Meet Me at Mikes book. They take only a small amount of fabric and have a sweet looking birdy stitched on one side (with matching fabric on the back of the coasters). They're supposed to have a cute scrawly look, so stitching out of the lines is totally ok!

I haven't planned any makey stuff for boyfriend yet, but I really should. Thinking maybe the boxer shorts. What are you making for the men in your lives?
