A Merry Dove

Back in September I brought a pattern called A Merry Dove , by "One day in May" designer Melissa Grant. 
 Melissa was at the spring sewing day run by A Quilters Harvest in Warracknabeal and showed me how to satin stitch.
 We got lots of free patterns in our goodie bags that day, of which I have finished none!  But figured this candle wrap (or potential gift with jar of lollies?) was needed by 25 December, otherwise it is redundant for rest of summer. 
 
So I set to and made it over a 24 hour period.  Not having a light box was the biggest fiddle.  There are lots of other things I should have been doing, but so what!
Happy quilting, Sue.
