Christmas Mittens and Big Horns
I started stitching some wool mittens for Christmas. An easy pattern to stitch and add applique and then add a rusty tin hanger. The pattern is an easy one to draw out, just a mitten with a contrasting colored wool for the top edging.
The first big herd of Big Horns were down today, all females with three new babies. The little ones got a kick from Mom when it was Mom's turn to get to the salt, an early lesson in who comes first. They are trying to lick salt from the dirt in that spot, need to buy a new salt lick for them and the elk that move thru.
Thanks for all the nice comments on Jim's quilt, will hand applique it this winter, which is here already, with an off white crewel thread that I have.
