This is such a cute coaster! I don't normally make coasters, but this one just looks like the perfect teacher appreciation gift! Thanks for sharing.

I'm glad to hear you and your family are doing okay after the final ultrasound. I've been keeping you and yours in my thoughts - good luck in the future, and have fun practicing!

I love your blog!!

Thanks for this pattern! I love it. I'm an intermediate crocheter, I would say, but I have no idea how to top stitch the pencil details. If you can point me to somewhere I can learn, please let me know. :)
Thanks, Chris

How can I tell anything about this pattern without the picture? The link to YouTube didn't show a video on how to do this pattern either. I might want to do this for my three great granddaughters but how do I know when there's no picture?
