Anyone for tea?

I've been away again, sorry.  The job change has not been as stressful as I thought it would be which makes everything so much easier.  All of the other changes are still up in the air and so I am still taking things easy, or at least trying to.

Little M, our neighbours girl, is two today and all girls need their own tea set.  I saw a beautiful one, but being china I decided to go for the smaller plastic one.  Well every tea set need it's own coasters and, in the spirit of taking it easy(!), I decided yesterday to crochet some coasters for M.

I'm done!!!  And pleased.

Last weekend I had lots of free time and so started my starshine quilt from Justquiltin.  I know that the pattern is no longer available but if the next one is like this it will be worth getting.  I didn't cut one triangle!  It took some time; the construction was so straightforward, so I'd say the time was probably more to do with the size; each block is approx. 18 inches square.  The 12 blocks still need to become 1 and then the border has to go on.

I thought I could give it away but I don't think I can.

Now I have 30 book covers and an Egyptian costume to complete by Thursday, all in the spirit of taking it easy!!
