Clever mittens and a gingerbread heart

by Corry
Have I got something to show you!!!
This morning I received these two..
clever mittens
A very kind lady knitted these mittens for me.
It are clever mittens..look, here's why...

clever mittens
The top can flip over the fingers to the front
so all fingers are free to use.

The colors are so bright and just me!
Wish I new how to knit mittens!
Maybe I have to take some lessons from the kind lady.

Something I know I can
gingerbread winter heart
Sew.
I used the very last corner that was left of the brown cross-stitched tablecloth
to make a last gingerbread winter heart.

For the back I used an old oilily blouse.

I put the heart in our store.
We still have winter weather. Makes me want to eat real winter food.
So, I'm cooking erwtensoep (pea soup) right now
and while my soup is on the stove, I have time to quilt some stitches.

Happy quilting!
