I also have made many, many artful oven mitts over the years.
In the post, I asked readers to describe their favorite handmade gifts. In exchange, I would send them an Artful Oven Mitt pattern.
The responses were so good, so intriguing, that when I emailed each reader to get her address, I asked if she would be interested in sharing photos of her handmade gifts with all of my readers.
Many of you responded and here is lovely selection of those gifts.

Kay Welch is a Christmas stockings connoisseur. This is what she had to say about them. “I love making the stockings. I had ten from that particular quilt ( with the blue embroidery work) that I sent to Tennessee for the victims of the fires. There is a quilter/quilt group organizing a collection of stocking that will be filled and given to the children.” Isn’t that wonderful?
