I surprised myself on this one getting it finished off so quickly and I have to say I love it !!
I know this picture is not the best , the sun is shining and therefore casting shadows but hey I am not complaining about the sun it is wonderful to see it :-) I learned a few things in making this , first off READ the instructions , sometimes I tend to just barrel forward and not read all the way through ,well the problem there was the large background circle was NOT suppose to be cut before sewing but I did ,so had to be extra careful with stitching to make that circle a proper circle and I bet you want to know how I did that right , well I will tell you , I have a stitch in the ditch foot that I had not used much and I thought why not let that little bar rest along the edge and position my needle to make the seam allowance I need and let me tell that worked like a charm .I didn't have enough extra fabric to recut so had to be inventive and see I learned something along the way . This pattern is by Kay Buffington and is called Dresden Plate Candle Mat , just incase you have a hankering to give it a try , I can see myself doing this one again :-)
That's it for me folks off to enjoy the sun while it is out. Thanks for visiting and come again real soon.
