Coasters for Tatting Tea Tuesday

The coasters are done! Okay, a day late. But I wasn't going to be able to give them to my daughter until later in the week, so I was safe!
I think they came out pretty good. They were made with Handy Hands Lizbeth thread size 20 in varigated green #144 and dark red # 670. I'm calling this #21 of my 25 Motif Challenge.

It's amazing how the varied color combinations make them each look so different, don't you think?

I was going to set my cup of tea on one for a visual of their use, but it didn't work out. I ran out of time.

For anyone that's interested, here's the pattern. WARNING: there may be mistakes lurking. Tat at your own risk.
