I’ve surprised myself with this candle mat.
It’s not quite done yet … still have to attach the backing to it. I’ll show another picture of it when it’s all finished.
It was actually really easy to make too. Once I figured out a good leaf arrangement, it went together fast.
I haven’t decided if I will make this into a pattern to sell though. If enough ladies let me know that they have an interest in this as a pattern, it will help with my decision.
If I did sell the pattern for this I would like to sell it with a wool kit too just so the option for the lovely clay colored pots and the mottled green leaf colored wools would be available to anyone who wished it.
That clay colored pot wool is extra thick and fuzzy coat weight wool. The extra textured thickness of the wool really makes the pots stand out much nicer than the regular weight wools would.
I just love pansies .. I think if I make another one, I’ll try it with deep purple pansies. I love that velvety look of the deep purple.
I think that I will do some dyeing today!
in other news …..
We are getting our roof replaced. They started on Tuesday with the roof above the garage.
I was gone the entire day yesterday, so I didn’t have to listen to all the pounding and hammering.
Today however, I can feel a headache coming on because at 7:30 this morning, they started ripping the shingles off the house roof.
The entire house is shaking with the pounding. And it’s loud. At times, it feels like the entire house will collapse and it’s scary.
I should just pack up and go somewhere for the day but at this point, stepping out of the house would only get me pummeled with the debris that is falling from the roof.
The good thing about the roofing job is that we found some really super nice Amish guys to do the job.
They’re just so cute with their straw hats and beards, I just want to pinch their cheeks!
No, they didn’t travel down here in their horse and buggy.
There’s a non-Amish guy that works for them who drives them to the jobs in his own vehicle.
It sure would be cute though if they pulled up with their horse and buggies.
Happy Day everyone!
