Blueberry Baskets <<------New Pattern!

It's the season for Blueberries! 


This new candle mat pattern called "Blueberry Baskets" measures 13" square.
While making the blueberries for this, I had them gathered in a little glass custard cup.
They looked so real in that little glass bowl, it made me crave blueberry pie!

The little round blueberries are stuffed with fiberfill and then stitched on. You can tell by the bowl of real blueberries in the picture just how real the blueberries on the candle mat look!
Basic stitches are used to make this: Blanket stitch, stem stitch for the baskets, running stitch for the blueberries and whip stitches to attach the blueberries and leaves.

The special price that is just for my blog readers is $8.50.  That price is good until Friday (7/6/12)
at which time the price will go to the regular price of 9.50.
That price includes shipping for US & Canadian customers.
Those who wish to pay by check instead of credit card, simply email me and I'll send you my mailing address.

I also have the mottled blue hand-dyed wool for the blueberries.  The wool is available for purchase on my website.
The price for a 12" square is $6.50 which includes the shipping.  This is enough wool to make one candle mat plus a little extra to make for bowl fillers, if you wish.
I will soon have wool kits available for this also.  Email me if interested ...

Thank you all... stay cool and have a Happy Day!

P.S. So sorry for all the storm damage. Years ago we went through something similar. It is amazing what damage hail can do!
