The body of the beast...

The body of the beast is finished!!!! (YYYAAAYYY!!!) The rest shouldn't take long at all. This thing is so big I never thought I would finish it. I think if I ever make another one I will not modify it so much. I hope to have the camera working by the time I finish it so I can show it to you. I went to Wal-mart and picked up some more yarn, so I will have enough to finish. I also picked up buttons. The hood will button on and off as needed and since the sides are open I will attatch buttons there it so it can be buttoned for added warmth. I can't wait to show you.

We have been keeping busy around here. Hubby has been on vacation this week, so a lot of home repairs have gotten done (along with winterizing for this upcoming winter). He also made me a sewing table for my craft room. (YIPPY!!!) No more lugging the sewing machine into the dining room to mend and sew. No more just getting into a project and having to clear off the table because dinner is ready or the kids have a project to do and need the space. I can finally start a sewing project and walk away if I want and not have to rush through it!!! (Thank You Honey!!!) I can't wait to use it. I have been wanting to make a new knitting bag but have been putting it off. If I'm up to it today I may start it!!!

I still have another month to go for the hat drive. I have two large boxes of hats so far. One for the veteran's Hospital and one for the regular hospital. (Hats, scarves, do-rag's or anything that could be used to cover one's head, must be new.)Items can be hand made or store bought. If store bought The hospitals insists the tags remain left on. If you would be interested in sending a hat email me for a shipping address. Several wonderful businesses have contributed and I understand a few more want to help. Thank You to those of you who have contributed already.

Have a wonderful day!!! Talk to you later.
