lend a hand

I spent Saturday and Sunday working on this quartet of oven mitts and potholders for a very good cause, to help a friend's mother. "Mary Ann Freitag, a resident of Orland Park IL, suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm in May 2009. Mary Ann is 48 years old, a wife, a mother of 4, an avid golfer, a nursing professor at St. Xavier University and a very determined woman. She has continued to beat the odds associated with this type of injury, but has incurred enormous medical bills and is under constant care from her doctors and family." -from Lend a Hand for Mary Ann The Freitags are hosting a benefit on January 22nd and these mitts will go into raffle baskets, so I thought I should bring out my most kitchen friendly fabrics and go to town. Hopefully these mitts entice people to buy a raffle ticket or two. Or 10.
