Hot Mitts, take two

Just a little something I put together. . .

Kim Hot Mitts

. . .for my daughter-in-law Kim, who, when I posted them on Instagram said she liked them and “hint, hint.”  I was happy she wanted some!  They were for her birthday.


I used Malka Dubrowsky’s fabric again, as it hides cake-mix-on-thumbs really well.

Quilting hot mitts back

I liked how the quilting looked from the back, on the heat-repellant fabric.  Click *here* for a pattern and how-to’s.

Sam Graduation

My husband and I drove in and attended my nephew’s graduation from University of Southern California, known for its well-endowed education in an academic sense.  In other words, lotsa money at this place.  Congratulations on finishing law school!

USC reception

They had a little reception afterwards and it was like a garden wedding–and delicious.

St. Honore Bottega Louie

But we took off and met the rest of the family at Bottega Louie, where this cool-looking St. Honore caught my eye in the dessert case.  Instead of trying to figure out how to get it home in one piece, I bought macarons in five different colors, and shared them all weekend with my husband.

But I have bigger news about this family gathering in the next post.  (No, I am not pregnant.)  Stay tuned.

  1. I love those great mitts!! Congratulations to your nephew too. Wow….look at all that yummy food – especially the sweets.

  2. Sounds like you had a nice time with family. I really ought to do your tutorial for the mitts or at least pot holders. It’s very very embarrassing to use my current pot holders. Have a nice long weekend.

  3. Love the mitts! Fabulous use of colors. Thanks for linking to the tutorial 🙂 I’ve been wanting to make some for my mother!

  4. Those oven mitts are wonderful! I need to add those to my to-do list.

    Congrats to your nephew! My husband went to law school at UCLA 🙂

  5. Love the hot pads! My little boys call the heat resistant batting “fire proof”. I have to remind them that the table runner is not fire proof and don’t lite any matches near it 😉
    I WANT that dessert table. HOLY COW!!!! What on earth is that blue thing? Puff pastry heaven!?
