A surprise gift of teapot coasters!

So Mary J. wrote the other day to say she'd seen something at an antique mall she wanted to send me. Of course I started watching the mailbox with a curious eye, and I was happy when the package arrived and inside were two adorable needlepoint coasters!

I believe these are needlepoint on plastic canvas. I gave up needlepoint and cross-stitch years ago because my eyes just couldn't focus on those tiny little squares as they once did, so it is *extra* nice to receive a tea-themed gift that happens to feature a form of needlework I don't do. But oh, do I appreciate the time and energy someone once put into making these lovely coasters!

And they're the perfect size for using with a tea mug! Thanks again, Mary, for thinking of me — and thanks also to that unknown woman (I imagine) of yesteryear who actually made them!
