Friday Finish .... Angel Candle Mat


This week I have been resting and getting ready for the holidays, but I always enjoy having a project to do at night. I saw this pattern in the book, Two-Hour Quilted Christmas Projects by Cheri Saffiote. It is an older book, but you can still get copies at a good price if you watch ebay. It is filled with a lot of wonderful projects and patterns that you can use as is, or remake into new ideas.

The pattern was more of a picture, not sure if it was an actual pattern, but I thought it would make a wonderful candle mat. The original has the vines done differently but I wanted the smaller type to fit a candle mat.

On this one, I used an outside light source, so it picked up the walnut stain.The actual piece is more blended with darker spots, which are showing up more.

I like how your creative mind takes a design, changes it and makes it your own. I have Cheri's book and ordered it through Amazon at a good price. Loads of holiday type designs in it. My only thought about the book is that the designs are to be enlarged before using them.

So pretty! I do believe you could take any picture and make anything with it. You're that talented.
Good to hear you're getting rested up. Now come the holidays!
