One of the crafts that I have enjoyed for a long time is plastic canvas needlepoint. It's so much fun and easy for all ages. I've taught it to the kids in my craft group and they love it. Right now, I've got seven different coaster designs on the Herrschners website. There is quite a variety: penguins, pansies, slices of pie, horseshoes, autumn leaves, roosters and owls.
Here's my current favorite. They were fun to design in all the different colors. I think I'll give them names...sleepy, winky...kind of like the dwarves.
