I found these five little 5 inch (14 cm) Japanese made coasters at a second hand shop on the Oregon coast last August. I finally have decided to move ahead and incorporate them into a project. I will soon add the finished project to this post, as I think it will be done by the end of the week. I have heard that cottons and silks will increase in cost this year, so I am going to be looking more and more into the thrift and second hand shops for vintage textiles to work with. I also recently ordered a bolt of raw silk to dye with natural dyes. Come on spring! That activity needs warmer outside weather!
