Christmas Mitten

Another small project completed!  I had made up small six inch sample blocks in various stages of completion for my workshop last week.  Since I nagged all the ladies attending unmercifully that they needed to bring their completed projects and show them off at the Guild Christmas party coming up next week, I decided I had better follow suit. 
So, here is a small ornament that I cut out from one of my sample blocks and embellished.  I used ribbons, some lace I "golden dyed" with potassium permanganate, various ribbons and some seam treatments.  I like the colours I used in this block and think it made an elegant little ornament.  So, I am ready to take it to Guild on Wednesday and as an added bonus it will do double duty as my gift for the exchange.

That's delightful! I remember "pot.permang" as being a strange purple colour in chemistry. The colours you get in dyeing are often unexpected, aren't they!

Wow, I did a couple dozen mitten ornaments last year, but they were all white (boring). Yours is so elegant and CQ’ed, which we all know gives it a special, vintage flair. ITS LOVERLY!! You and Gerry K are making me lust after those colors.... Hugs, Cathy
