A truly beautiful Minxy mix of charm, inspiration, practical advice, and pretty projects to simplify and beautify your life and home. - Jane Brocket, The Gentle Art of Domesticity
Too hot to handle
With the rain pelting down and Sydney gridlocked in traffic last Wednesday, I headed off to No Chintz for a workshop to make some nifty oven mitts. The women I met in the class were so fab – all mothers, all crafty – and we each made an oven mitt and half a matching mitt to pair with the first.
Once you get the hang of these handmade pieces, you can knock one up in half an hour. And a pair make a great gift for a friend who loves to cook.
A while back, I was visiting all the people in my old office, and my former MD mentioned the book: “One thing is certain,” he said. “I’m sure you won’t be writing one for men”. I think these could be a contender for The Crafty Minx for Blokes, don’t you think? Maybe I should add a bit of padding and call them boxing gloves.
