There's no place like home

Remember that line? from The Wizard of Oz? Well, it's true. Grandma Coco's been on The Grand World Tour for a few months now, but she's thrilled to be back home in the Kingdom where life is good again. (And they know how to make a decent cup of tea.)

So, let's get started with a bang, shall we? We've been busy working on mittens. Stranded mittens. Fair Isle mittens. And especially, EMBROIDERED mittens. We've been working up to something. We had that feeling you get sometimes when you let yourself just follow your nose and you're sure something good's going to come of it but you don't know exactly what.....just that it's going to be GOOD.

Well, we finally got to the good part. (Pardon our modesty, or lack thereof.....you all know Grandma Coco's not above tooting her own horn.)


We LOVE, love, LOVE these mittens with their green-eyed cat. We love, LOVE, love the sculptural face. We've put these mittens up for sale on Gift-it with all the proceeds going to the Gananoque and District Humane Society. Here's the link, if you're in need of a pair of mittens, or you just want to help out. The Gananoque and District Humane Society is a no-kill shelter run entirely by volunteers.

The mittens and the embroidery motif are original designs, handmade by us. Sized to fit a child. 5 1/4 in. from wrist to tip plus 3 inches of snug ribbing to keep the snow out. 7 in. around the palm.

Let's do some good in the world.


  1. So glad you clicked those ruby slippers together and returned to the Kingdom! Those mittens are cute, cute, cute, How can you not smile looking at that sweet kitty face with those chubby cat cheeks? Those are going to make someone very happy.

  2. Welcome back :) Love the idea of embroidering on crocheted mittens and this cat design is adorable!
