    Another nice site for holiday gift ideas!

    I am trying to find gifts to make that people will use. I stumbled upon these from a site I had saved as a "favorite" awhile ago but never looked at closely. There are lots of sewing and craft projects, just scroll down for quilting projects.

        Ok, I give up, you gals keep talking about candle mats so I am going to fess up on my ignorance and ask "what the heck are they?"
        I looked at some on google, they look like table mats for putting hot dishes on, but we dont put candles on our tables. HELP

          Thank you Shauna - I made another 2 while waiting on water to boil for eggs in the morning......

          Lynn - they are the same - put a mat under the candle just in case any wax drips so not to get on the table..... or just to decorate with.....

            Thanks Suzi, the ones I looked at sure were pretty, and the ones you have made are cute. I guess it was a little confusing because we just don't normally do candles on our tables.

                  i don't burn candles anymore - have a plug in warmer that melts little chunks of soy wax - much nicer! plus i don't have to worry about it at all. Robin uses candles more as festive decor but i think she might like these. honestly i don't care for halloween much ...... think i will sell off and empty these storage boxes to make room for more spring florals!! YAY!

                          Suzi - no, I have not made the mats yet. They looks so nice! I have so much going on right now I should not be poking around looking for more stuff!! Can't help myself!

                              I wouldn't make a candle mat and put all that work in it to have wax melted all over it! lol
                              I'd make one to set a vase on it or something like that. Just too much work to make something beautiful to ruin. Sound like a grump don't I? Oh well thats my story and I'm sticking to it.
