Who Wants to Win This Pansy Candle Mat? (Giveaway)

 

 

100_3670

Oh, I’m finally finished with the Pansy Candle Mat.  It’s just glorious!

On Monday night at 10PM, I will draw a lucky winner name and then announce the winner in my blog on Tuesday morning. 

All you have to do to enter is comment in this post. If you have a blog, you must be a “follower” to qualify.  If you’re a regular reader without a blog, just click  the little “anonymous” circle and type your comment .. be sure to give your name!  Everyone is eligible .. even you wonderful international non-USA readers!

Here’s more pictures of the Pansies ….

100_3671

100_3672

It measures about 13” across with the center circle measuring 4 1/2” across.  It’s made entirely of 100% wool with the petals all my own hand-dyed and specially dye-dipped.

No, the basket of pansies is not included!  They certainly look pretty with the candle mat though, don’t they?

The winning answer for Wednesday’s trivia question (What’s my most popular pattern to date?) is “Let It Snow” 

It’s by far the most popular with “Scarecrow Jack in the Pumpkin Patch” coming in second place but, like Brenda suggested, I think once late summer hits, the Scarecrow Jack will take the first place spot. 

All of you who guessed correctly will get one extra entry into this drawing.  All those who commented received one extra entry too. 

So again, to be entered in this Pansy Candle Mat drawing, you MUST comment in this post.  I can’t accept emailed entries …. they’re too difficult to keep track of. 

Even if you don’t have a blog, you are still able to comment by clicking the “anonymous” circle in the comment section.

Happy Day everyone!

Wow! The pansey mat is gorgeous. I would love to learn how you dyed the wool to make the petals so life like. I love working with wool but would be very pleased with a ready made one.

Your pansies are simply stunning! I do a bit of wool applique and have made a few pansy mats and pincushions, but none of them even come close to the perfection of your work! The coloration surely sets it apart. I've become a follower and can't wait to see more of your work!

Please enter me in your lovely and generous giveaway

I've been following your blog for a while and I've almost got the courage to try working my first penny rug. All that cutting scares me, though.

I love your mat! Pansies and daffodils are my weaknesses! Please enter me in your giveaway.

Brenda said...

I better win this one because that's the only way I'll have one of these in my house. LOL! That mat is brilliant, absolutely amazing! Maybe you could post a little tutorial showing how the heck you dye those petals to make them look so real. I think this one is the most certainly not a "beginner" project...but those petals do kick butt so it would definitely inspire those who are building their skills.
Congratulations on actually finishing it...and for the record, you are a bigger woman than I am. I could not part with that mat after all that work. LOL!

rachcode said...

This is so beautiful! It reminds me of my grandma who always had pansies growing in her window sill...I LOVE it! I just found your blog tonight but I quickly added it & will be back often! thanks for sharing!
