The three little kittens, they lost their mittens,
And they began to cry,
"Oh, mother dear, we sadly fear,
That we have lost our mittens."
"What! Lost your mittens, you naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie."
"Meow, meow, meow."
Then you shall have no pie...
Reading Mother Goose poems at my age cracks me up. Most of them don't make a pinch of sense, but then they are stuck in my head for a long time! Living in Wisconsin during winter, our house is constantly full of lost mittens, now that they are too old for the length of yarn that connects the pair.
There is a fun new challenge debuting tonight at CAS-ual Fridays! Create a clean and simple project that utilizes paper piecing. We are welcoming back The Craft's Meow as a sponsor so you don't want to miss your chance to play along to win the fabulous prize!
I paper pieced the mittens from the great The Craft's Meow set Warm Winter Wishes, which has big, outlined images that are perfect for this application. A bit of snowflake and sentiment stamping from the same set and glue and string (in the shape of a heart!) finished up the card.
Please check out the CAS-ual Fridays Blog for challenge rules, sponsor and prize details as well as to see the fantastic paper pieced creations from the Girl Fridays!
