Did I mention we're having a new kitchen?! Well, it's far from finished yet. Poor old Dom has just completed the fourth coat of caulking on the wood panelling, and he's made the funky white leather chairs for our breakfast bar, but otherwise progress is slow. I thought I would cheer myself up with some coasters, inspired by Emma Bridgwater, that I completed again at Langlands. They took an hour or so, but I enjoyed myself painting them and they make me smile just hanging around the place. I especially like the texture on the bird tile, and will try to replicate this in future.
