I Have No Candles, But

I have a Scrappy Penny Candle Mat.  Yes, it is finished.

After getting all the pennies stitched to the scallops, I cut the backing out of the same fabric I used to back the Fish Quilt. Using DMC perle cotton #12 in color 640, I blanket stitched the felt to the backing fabric.

Here it is, front and back, finished. It's about 11 inches across.

Pineapple Birds
We had a fresh pineapple and Ted put the outside peelings on the railing of our deck for the birds.  Here are some pictures he took of them eating.

The penny mat looks great. You have put the backing fabric on so very neatly. Fancy the birds eating pineapple. It must be a real treat for them after a hard winter.
