The other day I saw some cute hat ornaments on Facebook. I showed them to mom, and she made one up (the one on the right). Mom and dad were down to visit on Sunday and she brought yarn with her so I could make some more. I ended up making two (the one on the left and one I gave to my DIL) and then decided they were just a bit too tedious for me. They are cute though! Click HERE for a video showing how to make them if you want to give them a try.
A few days ago I was reading Lorraine's blog and she was talking about getting the templates for her flowering snowball blocks from Baycreek Quilting. Well, of course I had to go and have a look, and I ended up buying three sets of templates. I got the one for the flowering snowball that Lorraine was doing, as well as a drunkard's path template and the improved nine patch. That quilt has been on my "someday" list for a long time...maybe now that I have the templates, I'll actually get around to making it!
