It was also his parents 60th birthdays recently, so I wanted to make them something special that he could take over for them this weekend.
The girls have drawn them some fabulous pictures for the family, but my drawing skills aren't up to much, so of course I decided to stitch something!
I made them a kind of table runner, with our daughters' (their granddaughters') handprints, names and the year appliqued on.
Since I sent them a set of fabric Great Barrier Reef coasters I made for Christmas, I thought I'd stick with the same colours, so they would all match.
Here's some snapshots:
I also made (by request) a set of conversation coasters for my husband to take with him. I made these recently and posted a tutorial (click here)
