Christmas Sewing Work in Progress

Christmas maybe a few months away, but my interest has already turned to a little Christmas crafting. Although I am quite sure many crafters will have planned and commenced their Christmas makes many months earlier. My current work in progress is creating a set of felt coasters, nothing too tricky, a little blanket stitching to decorate the edges and attach a piece of festive reindeer fabric to the centre of each. I will confess that my blanket stitch requires some improvement, particularly when stitching around a corner.
