While I was in Oregon last month, a friend and I took a quick trip to Bend, after our Quilter's Affair classes. One of the shops we visited was Sew Many Quilts, where I fell in love with some of the wool projects in the back of the shop, and of course, a book and some kits followed me home. This one, called Red Geraniums, was a complete kit with pattern from Primitive Gatherings, but I changed some of the fabrics and added beads to the flowers (I guess I just needed a little bling). [The close-up is closer to the colors in the real candle mat.]
I found it was relaxing to work with the wool felt, and a bit like going back in time, since I made a lot of felt projects in the past. In fact, we all have a felt Christmas stocking that I made from kits that were easily available at the time.
Here's a view of the complete candle mat:
