He is very excited about them and they will be nice and cool. While it is not mom's favorite fabric print, I am learning to step back and let him make his own choices. I have to admit they are cute on him. And finally an amazing stash of fabric came in the mail!!!! I am so very very excited about this. They are to be more head scarfs, but I think I see a piece of fabric in there that may have to be for me.
When you have been so busy working on your crafty for business life, you forget to craft for yourself. This next I am going to take the time to do just that!. I am been sewing like a crazy woman these past few weeks. Anna and I have been making head scarfs for a woman who has just finished up her last round of Chemotherapy.
This is a picture of what our scarfs are looking like. Hers are a bit longer in the back so that she has better protection. The fabrics have been fabulous and it has been a very rewarding project. But after trying to sew my way through roughly 24 scarfs, it might be time for a break.
This next week I am heading off to our summer kick off at the cottage. Every year my parents rent a cottage on a lake and we spend the week playing in the water, fishing, cooking, and just having fun. This year I plan to take my yarn stash up with me to do a little knitting.There is always sock yarn involved in the summer months. I also have some bamboo and the wonderfully light O-Wool. This yarn is organic wool and cotton. Can't wait to try it out! I know that I might not make it through all this, but the idea is to pick and choose and be as spontaneous as possible. After all, I am on vacation!! Also in preparation for this event my 4yr. old has requested some new p.j. shorts. I let him pick out his own material and I just surged them up.
I think a quick head scarf may do the trick as I sit on the deck looking at the water with needles in hand and yarn running through my fingers! Ahhhhhh, let the vacation begin.
