It can sometimes be difficult to find things to do with crafts around the home and fitting them in with the stuff you already have.
I certainly have this problem frequently as the crafts I try don't necessary have a purpose - they are just done because I can!
My husband found this when starting his cross stitch work especially when doing little quick ones of an evening and we ended up with little squares of cross stitch.
I found on my travels that you can buy little acrylic blank coasters that fitted the little cross stitches perfectly.
We now have a completely unique set of coasters all made by my husband.
I wish that I could cross stitch so that I could make a set for friends - what a unique gift they would be!
