17 are of the tube variety and 3 are of the pot/tub variety. Here's a picture of the 3 cozies for the tubs.
I was also excited to check the mail and see that my labels have arrived. Labels to go in my hats. I'll have to do some experimenting on where to put them, etc, but they are very soft.

After completing the 17 lip balm cozies for Breast Cancer Awareness I still had 3 buttons left over. I pondered and then someone asked if I was going to make the cozies for the pots/tubs. So I did. Well I made one anyways. This one. I will make 2 more, but I ran out of the light pink cotton, which shocked me since I'm usually pretty good at keeping up with my inventory. So here's the cozy for a pot.
Plus I've taken another picture of some of the remaining tube lip balm cozies so you can see them better.

The buttons were made specifically for the cozies by the most incredible glass artist Gillian Soskin. They totally make the cozy! Thank you Gillian for helping me with my vision of these little guys!
If you know me you can purchase one of these cuties directly from me. Just call or email me. Or if you'd like to support such a wonderful cause please visit my Etsy site to make a purchase online. You do have to register on the Etsy site in order to complete the transaction. You can do so here.
I also encourage you to check out Gillian's Etsy Site too. Gorgeous handmade lampwork beads and buttons (if you can beat me to them!)

The 4th pair of socks that I've started. Socks are great for travelling. They don't require a whole lot of space. A little box filled with my lip balm cozy requirement. Sadly the mail did not bring the gorgeous buttons I am waiting for but I'm hoping to have a bunch of cozies ready and waiting for the pink ribbon buttons. And yarn and buttons for scarflettes.
How realistic is it for me to finish everything? I have no idea, but at least I'll have some variety and hopefully I'll have either a bunch of finished projects to post when we return or a bunch of almost finished products to post!

I was anxiously awaiting a new cotton order to come in with new colours. It finally arrived. The two grey hats are a product of the new cotton. It was a new supplier and although the cotton was suppose to be a worsted weight, I really don't think it was. It took a bit of adjusting to get the hats to work with this new cotton. But the new colours are awesome! Dark Grey, Light Pink, Rust, Dark Brown and Khaki! Very exciting.
Even more exciting news. My hats will be going into a local retail store soon! I have to get busy on those.
