Christmas is coming

Last year I purchased some kits to make oven mitts.  That was a big mistake.  I made one and I sure won't be making any more.  I think I will try to make a tea cozy out of the other kit.  I can use one at the cabin to keep my tea warm.

The oven mitt was really labour intensive.  Cutting, basting the sandwiches together and then basting both sides of the mitt together and then I don't think it turned out all that great.  Each side has 4 layers - lining, batting, Mylar (Insul-Bright) and then the outside fabric.  Really thick pieces to work with.   I thought they would make good small gifts but I think I will keep it for myself.

I also made a new Christmas wall-hanging.  I thought these snowmen were really cute because this is more of a winter wall-hanging rather than a Christmas one and it can be hung up all winter.  We have lots of snow here so it won't be out of place.

They are the same snowmen
that are on the oven mitt.
