Fuzzy Mittens and Spoiler Alert!

It's still very cold and snowy here so I made this pair of warm, felt mittens last after reading Teresa McFayden's 5th Day of Comfort & Joy. I happen to have all the supplies already - my husband says my artroom looks like a craft supply store cause I have so much in it. I suppose he is just a tiny bit right about that.
I free-handed the snowflake embroidery and used the pattern below (which was part of an ad flyer I received in the mail - see I don't throw anything away!) as a guide for the stitches. I added a teensy-weensy pearl bead at the end of each arm of the snowflake to add more dimension and elegance.


And now for the


~ SPOILER ALERT! ~


Tamy, don't peek if your mailman hasn't delivered it yet!

This is the tree topper I made for Donna's Vintage Tree Topper Swap. Sorry the tree topper isn't being photographed on top of a tree, but I don't have mine up yet. It's kind of blah looking sitting on top of that urn. It looks better in person.

I know I am late, but I finally posted my finished Winter Wishes book! Most of it is on flickr to make it easier to upload (I hate having to "dummy down" photos for the blog!). Anyway, thanks again for participating! And I love your mittens, I can't wait to make some myself. Thought they may make a fun package tie-on.
