Managing Expectations

I said one thing about this weekend, I would definitely have enough time to finish my Hitchhiker.  Naturally, that means I didn’t.  That’s gotta be one of the corollaries to Murphy’s Law, declaring one’s intent is the quickest way to ensure something won’t happen.

I did get lots of other little tidbits done though.  I added a cute little bill to my recent Grateful Dead hat.  I wasn’t sure the colors I had left would work but turns out, it was meant to be!  I love when stashbusting turns out like this!  It’s for a friend who accidentally felted an alpaca hat I gave her years ago.  I’m pretty sure she’ll agree, it was worth the wait!

I embellished the stupid black hat, as well.  I love it now!

The idea of a bluegrass festival full of 70’s glam rock fans tickles me pink!  And the pom-pom is the proverbial cherry on top, just in case anyone missed the humor of it before.  I have no idea if this one will be well received, but as usual, I’ll be happy to keep it for myself!

After that, I got the crazy idea to cut up a dress my Mom tie dyed for me years ago.  It’s been my staple lounge wear for a long time, to the point of decay.   It developed a gaping armpit hole but I couldn’t just throw it away.  I dismissed the idea of mending it, instantly.  Clearly THAT was too much work.   Cutting it up into ‘tarn’ struck me as brilliant though.  I couldn’t get the scissors in my hands fast enough.  Three hours later, I’m not even half done.

I think I’ll have enough for something garment like though!  It’s a floor length, shift dress, so no seams to get in the way!  Just a big flat piece of fabric to be cut up.  I can’t wait to give it a new life!  But first, I’m finishing that Hitchhiker!  Maybe ;)
