Another candle mat got the idea from You tube but pattern is something I made up based on the You tube idea I needed one smaller than the one shown not sure whether I would light the candles if they have this type of candle in the battery ones I shall buy some

Very pretty!
I liked the 6 part one as well. Have been thinking about an odd number like 5 or 9. But how to construct a 72 or 40 degree corner by hand, not to difficult in drawing or embroidery software. Have to attend a funeral today, so maybe during the weekend - we do have an extra hour as the clock is reset for winter time :)

Thank you. I think if I use the 5 units I would have to increase my pattern. Will give it a try

mops by mops 28 Oct 2016

No that would not work. For a 5 part one you need the angle to be 72 degrees and not 60 as for the 6 part one.
I made a 9 part one, which needed a 40 degree angle.

Thanks Sue yes it's times like this that I wish I could digitise then it would be even faster and it can fit in a 6 inch frame and then it would all be the same size you can't see but one or two segments are just a fraction bigger

spendlove by spendlove 27 Oct 2016

I was going to digitise it, but I thought it would be quicker to make the old fashioned way.

carolpountney by carolpountney 27 Oct 2016

Oh I thought it would be quicker especially the sewing part maybe the digitising would take longer I have been told it's difficult

mops by mops 27 Oct 2016

I watched a few You Tubes videos, especially the 6 part one. Those were not made of squares like the 12 part ones but rather odd shaped which would be easier to do ITH. So I digitised one but have yet to stitch it. The paper shape I made worked well, now I have to stitch and assemble it.

This is really pretty. I'm with you on the battery operated candle, though. I've made myself a new rule- no leaving the kitchen anymore when something is on the range. I get distracted too easily. My DH says I chase squirrels. ;)

You remind me of a favourite saying of my Dads - "You're daft me duck you follow balloons." (Me duck is a term of endearment in some parts of England)
