My Candlemat Giveaway Win Has Found It's Place Of Honor

Hi, Primmies,
Tonight, miracle of miracles, our ancient digital camera decided
to cooperate so I can show you where my beautiful Candlemat
from PAULA'S PRIMITIVES has found it's new home:
This is my teensie dining room/gathering room where I have an
antique drop leaf table and my Eldred Wheeler bowback Windsor
chairs:
Do you see why I was so excited to win? The pattern on the candle-
mat goes perfectly with my old Pfaltzgraff Village Folk Art water
pitcher. It was a gift from my sister Rose and BIL Dan. She has
been buying up pieces of this series like mad and has sent me a
complete service for 6 so far. She says they are very hard to find
and the accessories even tougher to get. The water pitcher is a
treasure.
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.


Can you see a little bit better, the tiny even stitches along the scallops on each side and on the appliques themselves? The
blanket stitches are also so perfectly, evenly spaced. I don't
know how Paula's stitches all came out so perfectly! I can't do
that even on a little stitching area. Her work is just lovely.
So this is part of how I spent the evening. Sipping more chamomile
tea with honey and we're about to watch a disc that came from
Netflix today, the series from 1985 called North and South.
I shall talk to you all again soon, primmies. Have a happy night.
Susan
