I finally got finished my gift for Katy as we were swap partner's in Sarah's Kitchen Item Swap.
I had planned to to make her a teacosy, but she got in there first and made one for me!! So I had a rethink and finally made her some mug coasters and one for her teapot.
I made them in the design of Wobbly Log Cabin Houses. They were backed with a red polka dot tea-towel and to protect her surfaces they were filled with pieces of thermal insulated table protector.
I forgot to add that my inspiration for these houses was the great work produced by Sarah of House of Krom whom I found on Flickr. She has a great little tutorial on her blog.
Another great Log Cabin Tutorial can be found of Melly and Me's blog.
