Good til the last drop. Or not.

I made Heather this sweet scarf and fingerless glove set. The yarn was super soft with a halo to it. And pink! So am thinking she will like it. Had a bit left over from the last skein.
Thought I would use it up to make Baby Jaidyn a lil cloche style hat. Used every inch I had. Not a smidgen left. The idea was to save it for next winter. Cause it just looked toooo big for her now. Even looked big on the pineapple. LOL Penny and I went over today for a bit to watch her. And I thought, oh just take the hat now. They can fold up the brim.

Hahahaha Not so much folding up and as pulling down. It is way too small for her. Her poor lil ears. Where was my mind?? That is sooo sad looking. We just kept laughing. I left it for her Teddy Bear. It fit it just fine. Guess I should have taken a pic of that. LOL But seriously, I thought it would be too big. I have just forgotten how much she is growing. Love that happy smile. And this is after she had just vomited up her lunch. EWWWIE! Left Penny with THAT clean up. It was bad!! I got the fun job of giving her a bath in the tub. She loves the water. And has such a sunny personality. It sounded like she said Angie a couple of times today after a bit of prompting. Okay, me chanting.....Angie, Angie, Angie...Probably said it so I would hush up. :o)
Here is the latest set of felted bags I made. The mini is just under 3-inches. I am so in love with these buttons. I need to see if they have gotten any more in. I know I will be sad when I run out and then cannot find more.We have 60 degree temps here. The snow and ice is gone. And the mud has taken it's place. Not so pretty. Poor lil' Mr. Toby is missing his snow! He tried to find even a tiny bit of ice this morning. We need a slight rain to clean everything off. The cars are filthy and the roads and drives worse. BUT the sunshine rocks! I have 2 windows up for a bit of cross breeze to freshen the house. Even turned the ceiling fan on low to stir it up. Let our germs out and the neighbors in. LOL It is probably a crap shoot over who's is worse.

Hope everyone is having a sweet Sunday.

She is so cute with her little button nose! Well, at least the teddy bear has a new hat. LOL!

That hat is so cute...and the baby is cuter! I think it looks fine on her...who says fashion has to be practical too?? :) Looks like she loves it too!

I agree--who says the hat has to cover her ears? She looks beautiful in it, and the color is perfect.

I laughed when I read that, though--once when we were in Africa, my baby daughter grew out of her only shoes so fast that I had to take her to church barefoot. How embarrassing is that? I finally found a sweet pair of leather sandals at a store in town, and had to pay a king's ransom for them. Fortunately she wore them a long time and I managed to get our son to wear them, too, so we got our money's worth.

That pink is pretty, and the little girl in it is cuter.

Your hat reminds me of the sweater that I crocheted for my duaghter when she was a baby - it fit her teddy bear just fine too.
