CANDLE MATS

I made two candle mats yesterday.  Both were made from kits that were gifts to me.
The first is from a Primitive Gatherings pattern and is made from wool.
The second mat is made with wool felt and the pattern is from Bareroots #166 Folk Hearts & Stars.

Thank you Colleen and Pam H.  I enjoyed stitching both of these and they will be put to good use.

  8. They are both fantastic! I just bought a few patterns and need to shop for a few colors of wool I don't have. How is it working with felt?

  10. Cute wool candle mats! And what nice gifts you received. This was the hardest comment to leave--1st I misspelled, then I couldn't copy the jumbled word correctly if my life depended on it. Perhaps I need to go back to bed! Now my password didn't work! Arghh!

  19. They're both lovely. I don't know which I like more. Maybe the hearts and stars as that can be out all year? But then, that would make the Christmas lights one special every time you got it out.
