Warmth in time for the cold!

Done! Last Friday I finally finished Maddie's poncho! I've just really needed to sew the two halves together for awhile and finally got that accomplished. I still need to work on getting some successful blocking done (where the edges don't roll up) but for a first effort, I'm fairly pleased with the results. Better yet - Maddie was very excited to see her first design effort (she picked out all the colors) come to fruition and even helped me make the blue cord around the neckline.

Next up: Jake's request for a winter hat. I thought he'd go for orange, orange, and more orange, but he's requesting green and orange to match his jacket. Need to find a simple, easy, QUICK pattern for that! I may have it another library book. Better renew that one!
