No I am not running for office....


My friend Paula and I started working on these embroidered Witch's hats in January...she finished her's in time for a local quilt show...mine still needs a few stitches and a hatband but I may have it in time for the Pumpkin Patch festival Saturday!
The pattern is by Crabapple designs. It is designed to be a pillow/centerpiece/decoration but we decided we wanted to be able to wear it. It has been a long time since I tried to make a hat and it will be a long time before I make one again! Getting it all together was a bit "fiddly" but I am happy with how it looks!

The first thing my DH said when I put it on - "so are you going to run for the Senate now?" Funny guy, no?!

I saw Paula's Hat when she dropped it off at the Aiken Quilt Shoppe on Saturday. It was beautiful.
