family cushion

I started this cushion quite a while ago but stopped sewing for a while, well I'm happy to say it was pulled out last week and completed, another WIP finished.
I have been having a lot of fun trying out a wonky star block, I used kerry's tutorial, I loved putting the star block together and will be using it to make a kitchen aid cover although I really want to make the pot holder to go with it. 
Also I have plans for a table runner for my dresser, I can't seem to make things quickly enough at the moment before another plan pops into my head…I'm making the most of it incase the inspiration leaves me again.
Right I'm off to sew some more stars x

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,
