This is my sister, Ann. She's the one that would sneak into my room when I was a baby to rock me to sleep. My Mom would say, "You're spoiling that child"! Everyone needs an Ann in their life. I made this scarf for her after she swooned over the yarn one day. I had such a good time making it for her.
This is Yemi. You may remember seeing her in previous posts. She has a innate sense of style. The bird she's wearing on her head is one of my Grandma's Christmas ornaments from years ago. I think it completes her outfit perfectly!

I had a busy Sunday...

This hat is for my friend, Sue. She's been patiently waiting FOREVER for her hat.
This is a hat from a friend I reconnected with on Facebook. She's a pink lover with an Ivory coat this season. I thought the cream button was just right to tie it all together.
I loooove this hat. It looks a bit dull in this picture (I sure hope my hubby has caught all my hints for a new camera for Christmas). Can't believe I found a button the same color.

New Hat

Here's a new hat that was delivered with a matching scarf yesterday. Anthony actually delivered it for me. I knew I could rope him in eventually!

This hat reminds me of a ski resort. I think of a super chic California woman wearing it. I have this idea in my head of how people in warm climates dress when they are visiting cold climates. Super stylish, fresh, and their hair never gets all static-y like mine does. They wear amazing boots (not Sorells) and never slip. Maybe it's because I've always lived in Minnesota that I have these silly images in my head or maybe it's just because I'm a nerd. :)

Winter Wonderland

Hi Everybody! Happy snow day. Here's my turkey soup out on the deck getting snowed on. I like to make a lot of soup at a time. When there's no room in my freezer this works nicely. :)

Here are some more shots of Chase. Mandy took these. Can you tell? :) Aren't they just precious?!?! Check out her blog to see more amazing shots from their first moments with their new little guy.

There's that big sister look it. This is Jayden with her newest brother.

Olivia and Reed

These two cutie-pies are Olivia and Reed. I can't get over how much they look like their parents. I had a lot of fun making these hats. Maybe because they were a surprise. :) Olivia's flower is made from Moda fabrics I found at Fat Quarter Quilting. I really love how it turned out.

Quinn and Cooper in New York City

Come on! How adorable...look at Quinn with her "coffee" in New York City! Quinn and Graham were on the same soccer team this fall. She's a rock star player...such a natural. Cooper and Gav have a long history of wrestling whenever they see each other. Thanks for the pic Sonya!

Tara's kids

Here's a picture of Tara's little sweethearts. I love how big sisters are truly, deeply in love with their babies. Tara and I met at Knitting Club. It's one of my favorite, knit and see what everyone else is working on. You really can't beat hanging out with a bunch of fiber enthusiasts. :)

Today's Hats

Hi Everyone, it's 9 p.m. on a Tuesday and I could use a glass of wine. Instead, I think I'll go to bed. What a crazy day! Thank the Lord for quiet moments and the presence to appreciate them.

Hostess Gift

I made this hat as a hostess gift for a holiday party we are invited to. I'm going to make their son one too. I figure they'll get enough bottles of wine. :) This button is one of my favorites. It reminds me of my childhood. My Dad died when I was young, but I do remember his leather buttons. He'd always let me unbutton and rebutton his "Mr. Roger" sweaters. :)

Tanya's Hat

This is Tanya's hat. We went to high school together and reconnected on Facebook. I can't wait to see her in it. She has blonde hair so this pink will look great on her. We used black in her flower since she mostly wears black coats. Thanks T!

Some new pics of cutie-pies!

Oh my goodness! Isn't this sweet? This is KK in her hat. Look at those eyes! Wow. Thanks for letting me steal the pic off Facebook, Bec!

Girly Hats

I just love girly! I used batiks on both flowers so they have a similar look, but not exactly the same. The twin sisters getting these are so adorable. I hope we get to see a pic of them in their new hats :)

A new girl's hat

Hi there,

Here's a new hat I made today. I mixed batik's with regular cotton fabrics. I'll share a photo of the cute little girl who's going to wear this when I get one.
