March Christmas item

Selbu Mitten, a traditional Norwegian design.  My March Christmas item, completed just in time.  The pattern is by Alicia Paulson, the cross stitch was worked with waste canvas over the felt and then I had to carefully wet and then remove the canvas, something new for me to try.  I love the look of cross stitch so I am happy with my little mitten ornament.  I am linking with Narelle at Pins and Whiskers for the one Christmas item a month, hopefully I will be back tomorrow with another little finish, Wendy xx
