This is just a closer view of the candlemat pattern. I tried to get
close enough to show all of the hundreds of little delicate, even
stitches that Paula did throughout the mat.

that even on a little stitching area. Her work is just lovely.

I shall talk to you all again soon, primmies. Have a happy night.
