Friendship Mittens

Before heading off to the Solomon Islands, I made about 120 kits for these little Friendship Mittens which are bookmarks for your book or bible. I took them with me and spent a lovely morning stitching with the Mothers Union ladies in Honiara. Here are the kits I was making before departure!

And here is the Friendship Mitten holding a page in my bible! The verse that accompanied the Friendship Mitten kit was "Just a little hand of friendship, with a grip so true, when you read your Bible, I'll hold the page for you!" Thankyou to the Bodalla Embroidery ladies for the idea and my adaptation of the verse to incorporate "Bible" instead of "book". Thankyou!
