I hope you see this comment - you wrote this pattern and posted it years ago but I only recently found it. My sis was wanting some coasters and I recalled seeing this so I made her one just to see if she liked it - she loved it and asked for a whole set. She took the original one to work and all her co-workers had a fit over it and wanted sets for themselves. Just wanted to let you know how much your pattern is loved.
