10 Hats to Go

Last week not only did I deliver the 20 hats that I previously posted about, but I also delivered these 10 hats to a store in Kanata. Unfortunately I wasn't able to catch the natural light for this picture.
I did want to highlight one of the hats though - the fuscia with the white flower and gold centre! I love the brightness of it.

I've also just 19 out of 20 hats for an order being shipped off to Vancouver very soon. Once I finish the last hat I will be making the flowers, sewing them on and darning in the ends. Out of this order came a great colour combination of charcoal and red. It looks super! Hopefully I'll be lucky enough to get some nice light to take those pictures.

20 Hats Ready to Roll

I just finished tagging (and making of course) the last of my first order I'm delivery to a cute local store! Here are the 20 hats I made for 3 Little Monkeys. And out of these I think I now of new favorites!

I just love this pastel pink with the white flower and celery center!

And for boys I love this brown with soft ecru stripes...a little Oreo cookie hat:) Yummy!

I thought my camera was ready to bite the dust. Instead what I realized is that little fingers have attacked it. Hopefully I have solved the problem and any other pictures I take will be with out the bit of smudging!

Nothing to show

I have been making custom orders like crazy! I wish I had taken pictures but I've been packing them up and shipping them off faster then I can take the pictures. It's great. Busy time of year. Before the weekend I had 56 hats I had to complete. Now I'm down to 45. I completed more then the 11, but had a few orders at the same time.

I'm not complaining. I love it.

Tonight I took a hat to a Mom to try on her little girl. She wants it in a different colour, but the little girl loved the hat! Now I can't wait until I finish her own little hat and bring it to her:) Nothing like seeing the little ones wearing a Loopy hat!

Finding Balance

It has been a busy, busy past couple of months with no real end in site. I am not complaining. I love being busy and I love that my hats have become so successful. What I need to focus on is the ability to find balance. Today after meeting with a local store and receiving an order for 20 hats I decided that I needed to take advantage of the day and spend sometime with my kids.

Today I attempted to add a bit of balance into the mix. We went to see these sculptures and we were lucky enough to met the artist too! Rocks balanced on each other. Beautiful!
