This weekend while the husband was busy cheffin' up breakfast quiches for us to eat all week (ham, peppers and onions - yum!), I did my part to encourage the behaviour by sewing up a pair of manly oven mitts for him. Black and red with skulls from the stash seemed rather fitting.
I used the Too Hot to Handle pattern from my much-used Denyse Schmidt Quilts book. In the 'use what you have' vein, they're made with doubled Warm and Natural cotton batting instead of thermal batting, but the Husband has asbestos fingers anyway and never seems to feel the heat. I think I see many more pairs of these for my brothers and the father-in-law. Time to dig out the Red Sox fabric!
