and another one ...

Found this cute square heart block here and decided to give it a whirl.  Things were going well so I turned it into a tray mat - will look nice on my rectangular tray which just happens to be at the cottage.  ^^




I came across the Santa whilst de-cluttering.  Many, many years ago when we had large gatherings for Christmas I always made a table favour for everyone.  This one was a plastic stem glass with fun fur glued on for a beard, two wiggly eyes, and a tiny red pom pom for the nose.  His removable hat was made from felt and a white pom pom.  These were filled with candy and/or nuts - depending on age and  preference.  Those were the days and how I miss them ... thank goodness for memories.

That is a beautiful little mat. I need to see what I have for decorations and mats, might need to make a few this year. I don't put up a big tree for now, but I like smaller ones and greenery. The santa is cute and looks fun on the mat, I want to try some needle felted ones.
