dresden blog hop

You'll find delightful Dresden projects at the the Dresden Blog Hop here.  Enjoy!



I love the Dresden Plate and wanted to make a candle mat using it.  It turned out a bit large  but works quite well as a table topper .... all was not lost.  I used a vintage doily for the centre and was pleased with the effect.
I don't own a Dresden ruler and have to draw my own; for this one I rounded the 'blades' to look more like petals.
