Inspiration
I saw this Etsy seller on Poppytalk the other day ( Dadaya ) and was so impressed with the originality and honesty of her work I just had to include it in today's posts. The felted mittens remind me of the Inuit mittens that my friend Michelle, who used to live in Labrador, wore every winter. They are just charming and they bring a smile to my face - are you smiling?

Those are the cutest mittens ever! It doesn't get very cold here in South Carolina, but I may have to get a pair anyway.

I've seen these around a couple places lately. I love the embroidery, so simple and effective. The color choices are wonderful, too!

Oh I am so glad you like these - they are so special and don't they look like she has fun making them? - maybe that's why we love them - the enthusiasm is impregnated into them!
Thanks for the comments everyone,
Fiona

Oh !! Like them all, great colours (I seem to have a thing for blue and red combinations) the first pair are especially cool and my mind is already whirring as to how to make a pair myself. As always your blog posts always leave me feeling inspired and cheery.
