Kitty Cat in a Mitten Card

Next to fall, Christmas is my favorite time of year. Do you like vintage Christmas things. I was just on the internet and found some blogs that participate in Vintage Christmas Monday for the month of December. It was fun to visit some of the blogs. I must return when I have more time. Anything goes on these blogs....could be old Christmas Pictures, decorations...whatever...I even saw some old toys. I had a good laugh when I came across some ornaments dated 1979....I'm thinking really now....that is vintage??? Boy, am I getting old...LOL

I have been trying different things for my Christmas Cards. This is a paper pieced pattern that I came up with recently. It is a kitty cat in a mitten. I made the little mittens hanging on the clothesline to match.

Here is the inside of my card. I surrounded my sentiment with the mittens again and used really tiny clothespins to attach them to the clothes line.

I just think these mittens are so cute I had to include another picture of them! I just love paper piecing. I have a couple more to show you soon. I did a bear dressed like a Christmas tree and a Penguin with a hat and scarf that is check back this week for the pictures.

I thought I would share a picture with you today of my Christmas decorations above my who wouldn't want to do dishes when you have all these pretty Gingerbreads to look at. Sorry for the flashback there from the flash on my window. I want to post some pictures of my Christmas Trees but it has been dark and cloudy here for over a week. I will try again soon.
Have a wonderful day.

I just love the little kitty in the mitten. My "little kitty" is 23 lbs, so I don't think he will fit LOL! This card is really really cute. TFS!
