Beeskeps Candle Mat


I had fun starting this lovely candle mat,i am really enjoying stitching with wool blend felt.


Even though they are rather small there is a bit of stitching in them.


Here it is all finished,i am going to make myself some of these in shabby chic colours for my sensy burners.


I think it looks great with a candle on it and it protects your bench its a lovely pattern by Bareroots little stitchies called beeskeps Candle Mat.


Just thought i would show you all my 2 SIL's ,we are very blessed with both these young men ,they are wonderful husbands and great role models for their children.
First pic is of our DD1's hubby Andrew and when i broke my ankle ( my hubby had left 2 days before my broken ankle on a fishing holiday) Andrew said to my daughter right your mum is coming here when she gets out of hospital,how awesome was that.
And DD 2's Hubby Chris is wonderful too,i stay with them quite often as they live near Geelong and this Wednesday they are moving back to Ballarat and will be so much closer to us,everyone is looking forward to them moving back home,and a bonus i have the little munkins today,right up to Wednesday night,we love them coming to stay.
So Cheers to an awesome 2018 to all my family and friends out there.
Cheers Shez xx

  17. Goodness that is SO SO pretty!! I will be looking up that pattern - I've never stitched anything like this but it looks like a wonderfully fun project and I love the happy bees which remind us that summer WILL return even though we here are in the midst of a nationwide deep freeze!! Happy New Year to you!

  21. What a nice candle mat, Shez. I always try to find something to put my candle on and never have anything. I really like your Header with the mason jars and the soft colors. Although I'm taking a blog break for awhile, the girls will still put up a post now and then, so you can stop by any time, and I will continue to visit blog friends as well.

    Happy New Year, Shez.

  29. That's a wonderful mat - I love the felt penny rugs but haven't tried making any myself. Don't have room to add felt to my already overflowing stash so I'll have to be good and admire them from afar. So happy to hear that your family is moving closer!
