I’ve been working on a few things!
Several weeks ago I made this cutie patootie a soft fuzzy hat made of recycled yarn. We hear he got a lot of mileage out of it while the temperatures were low.
Although it is 70 degrees today, part of last week was snowy and frigid. One day I passed a bus stop where a man was waiting with the cold wind whipping through his thin gray hair. He had gloves and a mid-weight jacket but he really needed a hat. So I decided to make some and keep them in the car for such occasions. I used an old favorite pattern that gives instructions for 6 sizes of this hat in 7 different yarn weights. The first was made with some scrap yarn. It may go unused until next November, but it will be ready when someone needs it. The colors are much better in person.
Current projects are a flower girl dress for Gwen to wear in Elisabeth’s wedding this weekend (pics to come, I promise!) and a spring-themed mini quilt for FSQS5 Monochromatic challenge. I used the fabrics from the last post and scattered them willy nilly to reflect the profligate greening that goes on at this time of year. Here’s where I left off yesterday:
This is a LOT of little pieces to sew together but I like the way it is turning out. I may even hand quilt it!
