Finished the Nautical Flag coasters.... what's next?

Finished... well, sort of finished. I still need to buy white felt for the backs. A trip to Hobby Lobby is in order. In the meantime, I'm done with  making flowers:
Now I'm starting on finishing the green backgrounds. At that point, I may do the embroidery or add the white paths to make strips. I'm still chugging along. I'm determined to finish this quilt.

I need to be working on music, but I don't "hear" anything and I'm not musically inspired right now. I wish I lived, breathed, ate, and slept guitar.

Almost Done

Almost done with the nautical flag coaster project. I have 2 letters to go, E and L. I still have to get white felt for the backs. I hate that the canvas is misshapen; now I understand the need for a needlepoint frame, but these 4x4 squares were too small. Live and learn. I'm itching to work on my quilt, even though it's music time.

Needlepoint Nautical Alphabet

The D is finished. It took a while to figure out that basketweave stitch, but I got it.
