Winter birds candle mat

Happy 2015
I always feel a little excited at the start of a new year, it seems like a good time to reflect on the good and bad of the previous year and try and learn from the good and bad if that makes sense. 
Should do so every day really but I get caught up in life and forget to see the bigger picture.
So here I am looking forward to the year to come.
I haven't sewn anything for quite some time and I wanted something small and useful to start with. I love candles at this time of year so a lovely little candle mat was created. Very happy I am with it too, it's given me the confidence to pull my fabric stash out and get creative again, I got too busy/unorganised last year to be creative, this year will be different.

I hope your new year plans are going well,

  1. Lovely candle mat Emma, so pretty! I haven't sewn for ages either, I really ought to push myself to make something small and sweet like that to try and get me back in the habit! 2014 had a rather stressful end for us, as our little Ru was very ill, but we seem to be getting back on track now. Happy new year to you xxx
