After seeing the picture I hunted for a week and could not come up with a pattern either for free or to buy. So I was starting to sweat a bit since I said "sure Julia Aunt Bekah can make that for you" (before I actually saw it). Oh, the stupid things we do for our loved ones. Well after freaking out a bit T turns to me and is like you can figure it out I have faith in you (he is so sweet that way). So you be the judge and tell me if it makes the cut.
I made 5 motifs and then sewed it into a hat. It actually has been very fun. I did a lot of hit and miss several bad ones and several froggings and some just throwing out what I made but finally at least I think success. Pardon, the blue Yoga Booty Ballet ball it was the smallest one I could find in the house.
I am hoping to be more productive and doing things more in advance this year than last year. Right now I am off to a good start. I have finished this project two weeks early for her birthday and I already have half a knitted scarf done which is amazing since I knit slow and have only finished a knitted dishcloth and nothing else since I took a knitting class last January. The scarf is for me (how selfish is that).
What kind of goal in your crafting life have you made this year. I would love to hear about it.

This is T and I with the Rock. After this picture we both got a Whistle. I know you are jealous but compose yourself I am sure it will come your way too. I have never seen the wienermobile before so I felt silly like a kid but I had tons of fun.
My life is not to exciting so the little things excite me. Hope you all have a great weekend.

Sometimes I feel overwhelmed but I know we can do it. It has been nice to plan things together. We have bought a few paint samples because we plan to paint the outside in April and the inside as soon as it warms up a bit. If you can see in the pictures it is snowing right now so it might be awhile. I will keep you guys posted on our progress.
The most crazy thing is we drove 3 hrs one way to buy an original ice box for the trailer. By ice box I mean you buy a block of ice and put it in a tray to keep everything cold. We felt a little crazy but it was so worth it. It is turquoise to match the stove. We found some formica lament to redo the countertop and the table.
It is a 1966 Aladdin Travel Trailer it was manufactured in Hilsboro Oregon. We are searching for original ads and an owners manual if anyone knows anything about these I would love to talk to you. We can be contacted at our Aladdin Website.
Have a wonderful New year everyone.
