Candle Cradles

Hello Blog Friends,

Well, I've been busy this week, writing and editing my holiday newsletter, and getting the house decorated for the holidays.  Decorations are now all done, so it's time to sit back and relax, right?  Wrong!  I still have several sewing projects (small, thank goodness) to finish.

I thought I'd share a cute little candle mat idea with you.  My mom and I came across the pattern for this on our travels in Kewaunee County last year when we stopped in at Fabric Creations in Manitowoc.   Mom has made these as gifts for friends of hers and she's made me a couple too.  Each mat is easy to make, and uses prairie points to gently "cradle" the candle that sits in the center.

I've made these and several others as gifts this year.

Aren't they just too cute!

'Til next time...
