Here's a very prim Candlemat pattern from my friend Christine of Preferably Prim all the way across the pond in Northern Ireland. I love how we can meet people from all over the world, most of the time the internet is a good thing. It's a thank you to her followers for the comments on her "Wooly Pineapple" and the congratulations on her 18th wedding anniversary. This is the finished candlemat:
"Cut one of each size of oval background fabric.
On the top layer, trace on the words and berry strands and stitch them in in dark colored floss.
(I used 6 strands of DMC dark brown for the words and 3 strands of the same color for the berry strands.)
Stitch on the pip berries using 2 strands of floss doing a French knot.
Using the templates, cut out 4 of each part of the acorns and stitch into position.
Now you are ready to blanket stitch the top layer onto the base layer of your mat, using 3 strands of floss.
Repeat the whole way around the outer edge of your mat.
YOU DID IT!
Admire your handiwork and enjoy in your fall decorating!
Once again, thank you for your thoughtfulness and visits - life has been so blessed since I started blogging!
And, here's her "Wooly Wednesday" post of her pineapple, it's so cute it's done with little "penny rug" circles in wool felt on the pineapple:
