I don't think it will surprise anyone to learn that these mitten cookies are very nearly the sole reason why I signed up for a cookie decorating workshop. The original session I signed up for didn't even include them -- the subject was "toys" -- but I just had to get close to these mittens! It turned out that we had enough people interested to hold (and choose!) our own session.
My mittens are far, far, far from perfect, but aren't they fun!!? The first one is probably the best overall. I like to think of the middle one as a bulky thrummed mitten!
The workshop was presented by Dawn Koehler Design. Dawn's home was beautifully decorated and so festive for the holidays! She had a cute, table-top feather tree decorated with nothing but her own snowflake ornaments.
