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!

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.
