Lace Coasters

I made two set of six lace coasters (glass coasters) - one set for me and one for someone extremely special, whom I can't name in case she sees this post.
I'm rather concerned she may not like them, because she is not crafty and therefore doesn't realise the amount of time that goes in to bobbin lace.

I once make a piece of Bucks Point, mounted it in a glass paperweight and gave it to a relation. Their comment was- did you make the glass? I have to say that all future Christmas presents were shop bought.

These are absolutely gorgeous! I hesitate to give away things that I have made any more. I'd rather give one of my pieces to a stranger who appreciates the work than to a relative or friend who doesn't.

I think they are stunning & would be overjoyed if someone gave me something like this! Learnt my lesson years ago about who to give my hand made items to and now am very selective as to who receives what.
