Saturday Sewing - Willow Tree Candle Mat

This morning I decided to take a little Saturday sewing was a much needed stress reliever and I am positive it lowered my blood pressure. I decided to work on a small project I picked up at Pieceful Gathering Quilt Shop during my visit this week. It is called "Willow Tree Candle Mat" and can be used as a tiny table runner or candle is a Pieceful Gathering Quilt Shop pattern by Debbie Lazarski. This little project immediately caught my eye and was very fun to put together. It is a "quilt as you go" style pattern and was quick and easy! It is about 6.5" h x 17" w...and will make a nice little runner on a small end table in my living room...

Now that I have had a little time to clear my head, I will get back to work on my pile of Blue Ribbon Designs keeps, I will be stitching on a sampler model for Just CrossStitch magazine...and working on charting for a special class early next year...I also have designs for the St. Charles Needlework Market in September in the works...I definitely need more hours in the day...


  1. Sounds like you need a few good model stitchers!

  2. What a beautiful mat! I love it! You certainly are busy with your design business. Deservedly so, I must say! Good luck!

  3. Your table runner or candle mat is lovely, Belinda! Your quilting is just as inspiring to me as your cross stitch designs!

    Can't wait to see your new stitching designs!

    Enjoy the resto of your weekend!


  4. what a pretty table runner. You have a lot on your mind. Great way, to clear your head!

  5. Belinda,

    I just love your your "Willow Tree Candle Mat"!

    We all need a little piece of "peaceful" piecework to clear out the cobwebs of stress now and then, don't we? Hope you find some peaceful moments here and there this week too! Kathy
