My first Candle Mat

I am quite proud of my very first candle mat. And this is only my second stitchery. I coffee stained it and am quite proud of how it has turned out. As much as I love it, I will probably give it away. He He

  7. Very cute!! I haven't made any yet but they are on my mile long project list. They are towards the top so maybe I'll get some made. =]

    That's a cute design but I don't know if I could handle all the curly q's. I'm much better at stitching straight.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
