small projects done

duck hat, still needs a bit more on the bottom then it'll fit my grandson

new wubbzy hat, needs face on it yet. got fingers done and need tail done which will be done like fingers. other tail was stuffed and weighted down too much for a hat.

camo hat, this one is a lot bigger, for my grandson. not sure if they want ear flaps on it.

this sweater was returned to be made longer. you can tell i did that by just adding on in knit stich another 2" section and then the white trim. and i had 2 buttons left over from the original.

still working on my light geen sleeved shawl.

trip to west coast

wow, super good time with my daughter and her family. we did go out to several stores and found some bargains. i won't bore you here with the other things we did.

dollar store had ribbon and fun fur balls for $1 each so i picked up a few colors i didn't allready have.

one of their walmart stores had a regular price of caron simply soft for 2.49, can't imagine what the sale price would be! also regular red heart was a super good price but all i bought was the spring green to make a frog hat and webbed slippers for my grandson.

looked at other stores -joanns, etc but didn't find what i wanted at a really good price. craftstar store is now closed :{

got detailed measurements for my 2 grandsons now and plan to adjust some ats i had made for my youngest one. got smaller hats back to sell at the craft show in july. those i will remake for my youngest grandson also.
