I was very good yesterday and turned my Hug n Kisses stitchery into the candle mat as per the pattern. I enjoyed the stitchery design, but I think it would better finished round rather than scalloped. Now I can say that I have started getting ready for Christmas!

I learned how to put a stem stitch edge around the appliqued stitchery - it makes a nice finish.

The rain has slowed for now, but very soggy underfoot. DH even felt the need to light the fire today!
Boys, pizzas and movies tonight for Mr. 13's birthday. Maybe I can sneak away and sew.

  2. A beautiful candle mat.
    Stay dry and enjoy your evening :)

  3. That looks great Susan :) I hope you managed to sneak away and do a little more stitching - it was the perfect weather for it.

  4. It looks great Susan, You could play around with lots of different edges and it would still look lovely. THe stem stitch edging is simple but does finish a project off very nicely doesn't it?

    Cheers, Anita.
