How has your new year started off? Big plans for the upcoming months? Did you make resolutions at the year's start? I don't exactly, but I do like to take the time to map out some goals and think about what I want the year to include. Right now, all that stuff is still floating about in my head. I must get it down on paper - especially all my quilt ideas for the upcoming months. ;o)
I was so excited to find these Joel Dewberry prints and then discover they were 50% off. What a treat!The last time I posted here, I mentioned that I had another hat on the go. Here is the latest new hat I wore to work in 2009. Same pattern as the brown one and the red wool one. I used a drapery weight cotton blend to make this one. I reversed the fabric for the crown of the cap and for the upper band. I like this bit of contrast. I do think I should have interfaced this fabric because it's quite a bit softer in structure compared to my previous attempts.
I hope you're not getting sick of seeing hats... that's right, you guessed it, I'm working on one right now and have plans for some more. I think part of the appeal of hat making is the short turn around time. A few hours in the evening and the next day I'm wearing it!
Hope your 2010 is off to a great start!
