AlphabetPhoto: C is for…

needle felted candlemas imbolc candle

It’s running up to Candlemas or Imbolc (2nd Feb), which marks the half way point through winter. I’ve been working on a particular seasonal crafting project, with a colourful note to it. The needlefelted candle is just part of it. I couldn’t resist adding a face. A cheeky face, I hope. He’s not quite finished yet. Some projects can’t help but take on a life of their own.

I made him yellow, like beeswax, and to add a glow in his own right. I remember reading that churches used only to burn beeswax candles. Tallow candles being too smokey and smelly. I’ve noticed that when we light our hand-dipped beeswax candles, they drip less than shop bought candles, so I wonder if that was another reason.

Joining in with PODcast’s #AlphabetPhoto. My C is for candle. Hope he brightens your day too!

      Oh thank you! Not quite finished, but I couldn’t resist sharing. I’m working on his eyebrows at the moment. 🙂

      You may have heard of US’s Groundhog day, which is part of the same celebration. It is a fun one to join in with. We make candles (real ones) and sow seeds. And make cake, of course!

    What a cute candle. I hadn’t realised that Imbolc was nearly here – how lovely to be passing the mid point of winter and looking forward to the sun getting stronger! x #alphabetphoto
