Candlemat

I finished this little wool candlemat this morning too. I started it last Wednesday at the Tacoma Lakes Quilters meeting. A number of us bought these kits and had ourselves a workshop.

I was determined not to let this become a ufo, so I worked at it until it was done. I don't normally work in wools, and I don't do buttonhole stitch or any other embroidery, but I found this little mat very appealing. And I did the buttonhole by machine. I wasn't sure how well it would work on wool, but it turned out just fine.

Looks great, I've done several penny rugs and have always done them by hand. Maybe I will try out my machine's button hole stitch some time soon.
