I have been ill for about two weeks. After the first week where I started to get better, but then got worse again, I finally realized that I must be allergic to spring. We have had record highs of birch pollen and now I believe that may be the source of my sinus problems and cold-like symptoms. I started taking an allergy medicine and things have improved significantly. Since my last post, I biked once more to work, but got a flat tire so caught a ride home. As soon as sweetie fixes the tire, I'll be back to biking.
Last weekend was our church Ladies Retreat. We had a special speaker, singing, campfire with s'mores, one night in a cabin, more great speakers, a craft time and then back home. I was miserable because of the allergies but had a great time anyways. My sister and I led the craft time. We made coasters out of tiles and napkins.
To make coasters you start with four tiles each. Pick a napkin that has a pleasing design and cut four 4" square pieces from it. Mod-podge the tiles, place the napking squares neatly on top and mod-podge some more. The napkins will wrinkle a little but not to worry! After completely dry, spray with clear acrylic to seal. Then attach little felt feet to all four corners of each tile and Voila! Coasters.
