Sew It – Show It Challenge: Rose Colored Glasses


I'm so happy to be participating in another fun challenge, this time hosted by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt.

Here's the list of today's participants:


We've been challenged to create something rose-colored, or rose-related, or glasses-related. I decided to go with roses, but instead of making them "rose-colored" I'm using yellow. I have two projects to share with you.

The first is a 16" wool felt piece that I'm calling "Cottage Rose Table Mat."

It's stitched up in wool felt and embroidery floss, and comes together quickly. If you'd like to create one for yourself, the FREE pattern can be found here.

A note about my FREE patterns: No patterns will be listed as available on my blog after July 2023. (My patterns are currently hosted on server space that I will be discontinuing then.) So if there's anything currently listed that you might be interested in, download it now! After that point, I will still make some patterns available during these challenges, either via email or another method which I am still exploring.


My second project is (are?) no-sew wool felt roses, created from a pattern from the Lia Griffith website. I think they make a nice compliment to the mat.


I love to read your comments and will reply to them all via email unless you are a No Reply Blogger.

Finally, be sure to visit everyone participating in this fun challenge!
