I really like this one, it looks like a little doily. I like your other patterns too. Thanks for sharing your patterns.

This pattern is very interesting. I like the fact that it's not a circle or a square, but it does have straight edges. I'm going to see if it will lend itself to having the pentagons joined for an afghan. Thanks for sharing!

These can be used as coasters...or covers for any drink with small bead's at the ends of the edge.
