First Hat for Uganda!

The ladies at my church are crocheting hats for Uganda! We will be sending another mission team to Uganda in 2012 (I think!) with these hats.

I used my 13yo son as the hat model so I could share this with you. Unfortunately, 13yo boys are very reluctant models at times. Like today. Anyway, I think you can see the hat clearly. So here you go!

Tunisian Crochet

I found a great tutorial on Tunisian Crochet here.  She did an excellent job of explaining just how this is done!  In fact, I picked up a afghan hook at JoAnn Fabrics this week and tried my hand at it.  This is the result!

I am pleased at how it turned out and already have plans for I can use this for other projects in the works.  I think my distortion in the picture above is actually because I scanned the square which puts pressure on it.

Ruffled Sewing Project

I just finished (I think!) my first ruffled sewing project for my youngest DD. This cute skirt was so easy to make and she loves it! Don't look too closely because there are many flaws but I enjoyed making it and she likes wearing it and that is what matters!

My first ruffled project! DD is quite thrilled!
