Hats off!

I had two finishes yesterday. Number one: While at the quilt store in some spare moments, I was able to finish the second Watermelon hat. The first one I made was a little larger than I wanted, and also got claimed by Cameron, so I made another for my niece Sophia. Most of the time I spent on this hat was 'found time' - like waiting for Amy in the car kind of time. And with this hat I was able to benefit from the mistakes made first time around, like to make the green strips a little wider so they'd roll nicer.

Number two: I hand sewed down the last of the binding on my scrap quilt. I really like this quilt, and I'm raring to go on my next quilt. I have three quilts all drawn up and ready to go ... but ...

My sewing room is all packed away. This time tomorrow, I'll be quilting up a storm, but for tonight we're having one of Marty's friends sleep over, and I don't want to have to tidy the sewing room up again. In fact, today is a really strange day. Once a month on a Thursday, I have a day entirely to myself. Today is that day, and I just don't know what to do with myself. Marty has taken my car for a few hours. The house is "don't want to touch anything" tidy, and I can't do any sewing. Ohhh my goodness ... what do do??

I think I may just keep plugging away at my white wholecloth quilting. I can't think of anything else I really need to work on. As I said ... this is a really strange day!

The watermelon hats look great. No wonder Cameron claimed one! Sounds like hand quilting is the way to go today. =)

LOVE the watermelon hats -- do you have info on the pattern for that? I can see that as a great Christmas gift!

I just love the watermelon hats! Did you use beads for the seeds! I know I've seen them on-line somewhere, but would you mind reminding me of the pattern details?

Thanks
