First, a birthday party at the skating rink. Then shoe shopping for the boys. Then, a wedding. Then, a quick stop at the local quilt shop to pick up fabric for a quilt I am planning for Jason for his birthday in August - he has outgrown his current quilt, and has to stay curled up to stay covered. Oh, wait, did you notice I said I bought fabric for this quilt? Yup, I am not making him a scrap quilt, but rather, a planned quilt.

I decided to cut it up and made this:
That curve between the thumb and the rest of the oven mitt didn't turn out so well, but it is definitely better than this, which is what I usually use.
