Now that both of these Strawberry candle mats are finished, I still can’t decide which one I like best. Honestly, if I were to buy one already made, I wouldn’t know which one to purchase … I’d have to have them both!
So now you can see how you can entirely change the look of any pattern simply by changing the color scheme.
I really want to know now … which one do you like the best?
This version, as you can see has the white background with the dark green backing.
This picture will give you the idea of how it looks with a candle.
I will be working on writing up the pattern instructions for it tonight and tomorrow and hopefully, either Monday or Tuesday, I can start taking preorders for it.
I will be selling the wool kits for it also. The kits will be in very limited supply because this has a lot of hand-dyed wools in it and I just don’t have the time to dye up yards and yards of wool to create a large supply of kits. On the other hand, I do want all of you to have these really pretty mottled colored wools to make this, so I’ll do my best to fill all orders.
It’s a late day posting today because I woke up this morning to no tv cable or internet service. How miserable is that?
I have a daily morning wake-up routine of drinking my coffee while answering emails and filling orders.
Today I could only drink coffee and stare into space.
I don’t know about you but for me, no matter how strong the coffee, if I’ve nothing to do while drinking it in the morning, staring into space will only put me back to sleep.
It was a tough morning.
My census job is coming to an end soon … probably this coming week will finish everything up in our area. I will have my stitching time back, which I’m really excited about but I will miss all the wonderful people that I’ve worked with every day since this all started.
This past week or so has been working with the difficult cases …those people who have slammed the door in our faces or simply refused to open the door. It’s been a challenge to those of us who have stuck with it. It’s a lot of detective work and creative thinking so that we can approach the cases in a different way to get results.
Yesterday I was lucky to get 3 different cases resolved and finished, which is huge considering that some of the homes have been visited up to 15-16 times by various census people over the past month.
Ok, I’m out of here to go out and enjoy my day.
Happy weekend everyone … oh, and please, don’t forget to tell me which one of the strawberry candle mats you like the best!
