For the last 6 yrs I've been making these long tail hats. The fleece choices have been more fun then ever. I totally have a weakness for cute fleece. I would sell these at little church craft bazaars and people just loved them.

This is a batch of 89 hats. Ready to go. When I was a kid I swam AAU, that first winter I caught pneumonia because I wouldn't wear a hat. So, this if for all those kids/ adults who need that extra warmth on their heads so they don't get sick. When I started this, my daughter would hand these hats out to all her friends. She of course, had the pick of the litter. I believe one season she had 15 hats that she wore regularly. A mother of a friend of my daughters made her her first hat. She was 8 yrs old at the time. About 4 girls had these matching hats. Michelle wore her hat the entire Christmas break, even slept with it on. I then knew I had to learn how to make these hats.

By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
