My son was home from the other side of Canada for an extra long weekend and while talking Saturday afternoon about what he should give his future in-laws for Christmas, I got the bright idea to make his soon-to-be MIL a pair of oven mitts.  They are my latest 'thing' and thought it would be no problem to get them finished by mid-Monday morning when I had to take him to the airport.  I started right away but was thrown off by a medical issue that popped up unexpectedly and took up 9 hours of sewing time over Saturday and Sunday.  This morning I got up believing I had 2 hours to finish before leaving.  My husband decided, because of the weather, he was going to take our son to the airport and they needed to leave an hour earlier than I had planned on.  Panic time!!  As soon as possible (in other words, after helping my son pack all the stuff he didn't take earlier in the year), I sat down to sew and finished them as my husband and son stood waiting at the front door.  Quick press, quick pictures, into the suitcase and out the door they went.  Whew, tired just thinking about it!  I'm very happy with how they turned out!!

Even though this kind of mitt really doesn't have a top and bottom, I designed these with an extra layer of protective batting on this side so I consider it the bottom:

                         

and this is the top - can you spot my little logo (it says "Sewn by Cindy")

                 

An 'in-progress' shot, just because

         


Now back to work on the oven mittens my hubby and I have been designing.

A little nervous about that aspect as we just met these people in September and I'm hoping she likes them.

If she doesn't like them, send them my way, I love them.  I especially love how the spicy fries are on the "hot" side.

I never thought about the spicy being the hot side but that's good!  I made them the hot side because the black would hide stains better.  I didn't plan to use the white fries at all but decided to when I remembered this lady is gluten-free so I avoided my other fabrics with bread products (like hamburgers and pizza.)
