Worktable Wednesday- 80 Custom Oven Mits by Pasque Flower Creations!

Worktable Wednesday features something new happening with the BBA members or something of interest we spy online.


Our own LeAnn of Pasque Flower Creations has been busy sewing her fingers to the bone recently attempting to fill an astronomically large custom order- 80 Oven Mits!!  She's up to her elbows in poppies, & up to her ears in her "Metro Cafe" style fabric!


You can read the details on her blog, but here's her progress so far: 


Quilting mits!

This poppy fabric is lovely, but LeAnn comments that she feels, "a little like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, getting a bit weary looking at all those poppies."  Wouldn't you??


38 Metro Cafe Mits Done, 18 Cuffed Mits in Progress!

70 down, 10 to go!

 The latest progress report states that she had 10 partially finished mits left to go!  I'm sure by now LeAnn has them completed, but what a marathon!

The comment about The Wizard of Oz put a smile on my face. What a huge undertaking for LeAnn! That's great that she got the order finished up and shipped this week.
