I did it!

I finished my project!
     I'm a person with good intentions. I am, however, time challenged. I often want to do something or be involved with a project, but I get busy or ... (fill in the blank with the excuse of your choice Be nice, now!)
Many of the things I intend to do never happen or just don't get finished. D2 knows a blogger teen who has organized folks to knit, crochet, or sew hats for an orphanage in Romania. I learned to knit last year. I enjoy it, but I am quite slow. I knew that sewing has always been a default for me. It's easy and I knew I could get the project done quickly. My intent was to make 2-4 polar fleece hats. They were so easy and I had enough polar fleece that I just kept sewing. I finished 12 hats and I'm mailing them to the group that will send them on to the children. Those hats came out so cute I may make more one day. I'm happy today!

  5. Hi Patrice,
    I think you & I were twins separated at birth because I know EXACTLY how it is; you have the best of intentions in the beginning and then...whatever happens, and then it's two months later and oh why, didn't I ever finish that?! In any event, the hats are DARLING!! In fact, I'm such a nut that I want 8 tiny ones for my chickens :-) Seriously, you did a GREAT job and I'm so proud of you! Thank you for inspiring me...have a GREAT weekend!

  6. Way to go! I am also one who wants to do a gazillion great things only to find myself to busy to finish once I start. I think my husband has given up on the pajama pants I started making him .... FIFTEEN years ago! LOL!!!!
