It hasn't completely turned out the way that I had envisioned and admittedly is a very simple first attempt but not bad for the first hat I every made. The quilt is also coming along very well. It has become about the size of a pillow case and should be ready for a bed spread in about 3 months, if I actually get my bum in gear.
Next of my list of things to do is start felting, I am going to try it without a pattern and see how it goes, the aim is for a day of the dead garland. There was a hummingbird i was thinking about giving a go but I think I will start simple and work from there.
That's it for now, hope you like the new layout and my attempted hat, catch you all soon!
