This Weeks Stuff

I have been wanting to make a wool candle mat ever since I saw one posted online. I found a cute little pattern from Bareroots and decided to go for it. This was really fun and quick. I also finished another Farmer's Wife 6" block.
I put the final borders on the "Calendar Redwork" BOM.
That's all I have this week. I seriously need more than one day a week to play.

I Hope everyone has a happy, healthy, safe week.

Very sweet wool candle mat! LOVE the background fabric of your Farmer's Wife block. I have a little piece of that. And, what an excellent border on your Redwork.

What a cute candle mat - I love the hearts! I agree with Kim, above.... five days off and two work days. I could make some progress with that kind of time!

Loving Farmer's Wife - hope to get a few more done soon!
