It has been a while since my last post, there have been some computer issues that prevented me from posting plus the Holidays, mostly virtual, but I finally got to see my mom which was very nice indeed! This meant that I had to take a covid test every 7 days to be able to see her once a week, this is fine but takes up time that would otherwise be dedicated to my work... Not complaining just stating facts.
Anyway I am now back to work (at home) and couldn't be happier to be doing so. The first project I thought I would do is hats for my grandkids, I have some white fur that I thought the girls would like and for the boy I made a black hat out of Italian wool with pleather inserts that turned out quite nice.
I made the faux white fur one as well for the youngest granddaughter and well.... let's just say the vision and the outcome were decidedly different, not even on the same planet I would dare say LOL!!!
Anyway you can see the pix for yourself, in my head it was very glamorous and fun for the children to dress up and warm for them to actually wear outside! When I saw it I started to laugh so hard I cried, really tears streaming down my face, I couldn't stop for a while which brings me to my post today.
In these times of gloom and doom, long winter days, stuck indoors we could all use a good laugh I think, I could be wrong...
I issue you all a challenge to create an ugly hat using any hideous fabrics from your stash! The winner gets bragging rights, just so you know I set the ugly bar pretty high!
Lets have some fun, Who's in???
