The Mitten Song

Happy Monday everyone.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
I spent my Saturday morning and Sunday,
finishing up my Christmas decorating.
Mikalya unfortunately got pink eye,
so she was unable to perform in her
Christmas concert.
She was so disappointed.

Bob and I still went out for a nice quiet dinner.
We both had prime rib and margaritas.
They both were delicious.

So today I give you the mitten song.
My mom gifted me my dad's old working mittens.
I so love and cherish them.

I just had to use them in a display this year.
As I show you pics of my display,
I give you the 

Mitten Song

Thumb in the thumb place.
Fingers all together.

These are the things we wear.
In mitten weather.

Mittens made of wool,

And the finest leather.

Thumb in the thumb place.
Fingers all together.

I created the NOEL stitchery into a heart.
Mine was stitched on linen,
using one strand of Christmas Red Floss.
If you would like to stitch some up for yourself,
below is my chart for you.

If you would also like to make these for Valentines,
I have also charted the word LOVE for you to stitch.

    Hope you enjoyed both my display and the mitten song.
         Also hoping you enjoy the free cross stitch patterns.

                          Mitten Song Blessings To All!
