Our church is doing Hats for Homeless. My goal is to make 2 hats per week for the project. Here is my first one for it. I've made a couple for the girls so now I've had good practice. This one is made on the extra large yellow round loom. At first I thought it would be huge, but when you take it off the loom it tends to shrink up a bit. I think it'll be nice and cozy for whoever gets it. I made it with a combo of olive yarn and black chenille type yarn.
We'll I was putting too many side items in my homeschool blog so I thought I would start a new one. Hum...what will this one include:
1. My Sewing Projects: Some of you know that my 2nd Mom passed away August of 2008. This was an intense summer of care taking for her as well as my children. Her cancer came quickly and took her quickly. The sting is still very much here. Anyhow...I inherited her sewing machine and have began to do little projects here and there. Each time I use her sewing machine , I think...she would be so proud. I've always wanted to sew but lacked the confidence to figure it out on my own. So there ya go...
2. My ramblings about life, crafts I insist on making, and just ongoing projects I am tackling because life is too short to wait til tomorrow!
3. Whatever else evolves here...who knows what the Lord will give me to say!
