Winter Delights Polar Bear

Here's my latest make from the divine Winter Delights book by Tone Finnanger. This is the largest polar bear and I plan to make the medium and small sizes to go with him. I must admit I think he's lovely.


and in between sewing I re-cycled some pretty pots and glasses I've been saving to make some candles. These are my test pair to make sure they burn properly AND that they smell good. Guess what! They do...



I got seven candles in various sizes, which I scented with a lovely festive spice fragrance. Now all I need to do is pretty up the pots to make them nice and festive for Christmas so watch this space.

  5. Row, row, row your boat gently down the river, if you see a Polar Bear don't forget to Shiver...... what a most splendid Bear he is too. I love all your sewing makes, and am most impressed. I don't have that book, maybe if should think about getting it !

    Your candles look great, I'll bet they smell divine too.
