Pumpkin ShowOff

Pumpkin Coasters....who'd thought!!!!
Not me...I usually just fold a paper towel and hope it catches my drips and spills!
That was before I was a TEA drinker!
I've become a bit more cultured since joining the Wednesday Knit Foursome,
who are connoisseurs of Tea and Tea Etiquette.
And guess what...a folded paper towel just doesn't cut it when setting a proper
Afternoon Tea Party Table.
So, for our Wednesday, October 31st Afternoon Tea Party I'm thinking a Pumpkin Coaster
will surely give the Knittin' Gals an idea of how far this
Girl Raised In Texas has come in the department of Tea Etiquette!
What can I say...Old habits are hard to break!
If you would like to make a few Pumpkin Coasters...here's the link

Pumpkins and More Pumpkins


  1. What a cute idea, Sue! The ladies will be SO impressed. I like the fact that it's crocheted since I haven't perfected the art of knitting! Great project...thanks for the pattern!

  2. Darling! I'd love to learn but seem to get off count when I try to crochet.


  3. VERY cute coasters! All of your work is beautiful thanks for sharing. Happy Pink Saturday

  4. So cute! And the thoughtfulness just shines! Have a great tea party!

  5. That's so cute! I truly love all of the amazing things folks can do with crochet! Happy Weekend Sue:@)

  6. Hi,

    This is my first visit to your blog. I love these pumpkins coasters!

    Happy Pink Saturday, Sue.

  7. Cute! I can neither crochet or knit...I am all thumbs and my grandmother, laughingly, finally just gave up!

  8. Omg these are sooo adorable....
    How creative of you ;)


  9. This is soooo cute! My 16 yr old daughter is learning how to crochet. She carries her bag and yarn with her every where. She's going to LOVE this!

  10. Those are adorable!! I love to crochet, although I must admit I haven't progressed much further than ripple afghans! lol!!

    Thank you for visiting my blog! It's nice to meet another Texas lady!

  11. Yep, that would be me using the paper towel to protect my pretty coaster.

  12. I must have missed that pattern on Talking Crochet -- I might just have to crochet a set! I use coasters that I've crocheted all the time -- and occasionally put a paper towel over it too (do not feel alone....)!!

  13. Love these coasters. How fun to share for PS fall posts. I find myself wishing I paid more attention to crochet lessons. HA! Love the tea too. a cup of tea is so great when the weather is cold.

    Did you makes these Sue? What am I saying? Of course you did. Smile! Nice job.

    Yep, I am enjoying the decorations in our town so much. This weekend is our Fall Festival. Fun times.
    Happy weekend and happy fall.

  14. You need a cute little mug rug for your tea and cookies. I made one a few weeks ago and posted it on my blog. I used and old doily, and cut away the stained parts. Cute little pumpkins!

  15. You share! You are very sweet! I don't have this talent but I admire all of you that do! It looks like a fun project!
