Lindsay's Hat

Good morning blog world!  I haven't been posting as often as I would like.  I've just been so busy!  Over on Craftster there seems to be a Hat-Making disease going around.  And I am not immune to anything going around on Craftster lol!  Now I have a list about a mile long of hats that I want to make that I've found around the internet.  The hat that I just made is very simple, and would make a great base for any hat.  I made it for my oldest daughter the other night after she went to bed.  It only took me a few hours to make it, and I surprised her with it in the morning.   She is only 2, so trying to get her to sit still and model was a nightmare!  I must have taken a million pics of her lol.  I really should invest in a mannequin head, but it's kinda creepy I think.
Here she is, enjoying her new hat!
Here is the link for the pattern; Butterfly Hat
Her blog is very nice, and she has a few other patterns as well as some nice photography.  Happy hooking!

Are You Kidding Me?

Well, sometimes life takes a step forward and then two steps back.  For example, my husband is back to work, things are looking up, and then I happen to wake up Saturday morning to find my side by side refrigerator, freezer combo is completely room temperature.  Including all of the contents.  This is fridge number five in three years.  I'm sick of used and abused things!!!  So just when I thought the coast was clear, I have to up and buy a brand new refrigerator!!!! Hence the title of today's post.  Are you kidding me?  For real?  It seems as though every year around this time, something expensive happens.  That's life I guess.  Something is bound to happen when you least expect it to, and when you want it the least!  In crochet news, I am scrambling to get to the post office to buy a stamp so I can renew my subscription to Crochet World.  I love this magazine.  I recommend it to anyone looking for a good pattern source.  Also, I am working on that Queen Anne's Lace Scarf.  It's about half done right now.  I wasn't sure if I liked it while I was making it.  But as it's getting longer, I like it more and more.  I found a cute hat to go with it too, so I'm pretty excited!! Now I'm just hoping that my nice winter coat still fits after having baby number 2 last February!  Hugs and Stitches!
