Oh The Hats I've Made

Life has not slowed down. I've been busy busy busy doing landscaping projects and despite saying I was going to take this year off I have already signed up to do the 2010 60km Weekend To End Breast Cancer walk. Not only as a participant - but this time as a team captain! Our team the Groovy Boobie Girls is currently made up of 6 women. My goal was 7 but it looks like we may have 10! How great is that. 10 women means $20,000 towards ALL Women's cancers. Amazing!

And of course I've been making hats. I've been busy working on the order of 84 hats. 28 hats are done, working on the flowers for those hats then darn and sew them on. 1/3 of the order will be done. My goal is to have the first third done by the end of next weekend. And here are a bunch of other hats I've been making - custom orders.
I love how this wee hat turned out. All soft ecru with a pale sage green in the center. It's gorgeous and so classy.
These are a bunch of hats I made to take to one of the local stores. I've been trying to make more to bring her because they keep selling but I'm only a one woman show! lol
And these hats were also a custom order for the store too. A woman hat come in and wanted to get her grandbaby a hat and asked if she could get a matching one for Mom and one for Dad too!
This past week a had a couple emails asking me for some quick hats for baby pictures. This cute hat was for a wee one. I had made a 0-3mth size but then found out she was just a wee one so I quickly made a newborn hat. Good thing - the newborn hat fit her perfectly!
And I finished this cute baby boy hat yesterday for another local photographer. Love the white with the robins egg blue! Can't wait to see the pictures :)
