This small candle mat was made from a left-over block from a quilt I made for a young cousin’s wedding quilt. I have had in mind for a while to make a candle mat for our dining table. We typically have a table runner on it, with a glass bell jar on top. It looks nice when it is arranged nicely. However, at least twice a day, someone comes to shove aside the arrangement as the individual does a Sudoku puzzle or a crossword puzzle or reads the paper. The table runner ends up folded back on itself and looks terrible. My thought is that a smaller candle mat might not need to be moved aside to leave room for the activity. We’ll see! This is how it looks on the table.
Goal Status: 52 projects complete by today, December 31st. I’m very pleased to have met my goal to finish one project per week for the entire year. I am happy to have these projects done and thrilled that my flimsie cupboard is now empty. I still have Works in Progress that I need to finish, but the completed flimsies are now all done! Yee Haw!
Now I will take a few days off as we celebrate New Years at the cottage with all of our wonderful neighbours. It starts with a Pig roast at Ivan and Encela’s place, drinks later at Jean’s house and then lakeside fireworks at midnight at Andy and Leanne’s cottage. It will be fun!
A few days out of the sewing room will give me time to ponder my goals for 2012. Without the flimsies pressing on my conscience, I can be very creative and enjoy creating new masterpieces!
