Friday sewing

I was off today. My husband was off today too. He woke me up asking if I wanted to go shopping. Uh, no, I do not want to fight the crowds of Black Friday... so he went out by himself and I went up to sew. I decided that since it was Thanksgiving, I wanted to do some charity sewing. I am thankful for being healthy this year and hoping these few items that I'm making will help someone feel a little more comfortable. I made three of these chemo hats.

I just put the Brooch and rose on them to see how I liked them.  I like the rose but not in this color, so I'll be crocheting a rose to decorate the blue hat.  The other blue hat will not get any decoration.  I think I'll leave it as is.  It is smaller and I think will be ok for a man.  The beige cap will have a different king of flower or decoration on it...I'm not sure yet what I'll do with it.  These were quick and easy to make and our group got the pattern from Hancock Fabrics for these chemo hats.  I think I'll be making more of these but I'll be doing some for my grandkids. I think I'll make them a scarf too to go along with the hat.  This would make a quick Christmas gift.
 After I made the hats, I then made two Walker Bags.  These were also fairly quick and easy to make.  I made one for a woman and one for a man.

I made 6 siggy blocks and now I need to embroider them.  I received three siggies this week.  

This one came from Italy.

This one came from Belgium

This one also came from Belgium.  These two were from a Mother and daughter.
 I cut out 16 more blocks for my Crazy 8 quilt.  I'll be sewing those together tomorrow and that will be enough to put that quilt together.  My husband is going to play golf, my son will be at work, so I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and do some more sewing. Oh my, that's going to be really tough!  Yeah, more time to sew. 

I just finished crocheting a navy blue rose for one of the hats.  Now, I gotta decide what to do for the beige hat.  I think I'll do another rose....I'll show you those tomorrow.  Til next time...

Busy busy! I refuse to go out on Black Friday as well. It's insane, pregnant or not!

Great charity sewing projects. I know someone special will appreciate them greatly.

Bless you for sewing up such wonderful charity gifts - and thanks for the reminder to the rest of us!

I do love the hats! What a great use of your time on a day when so many people may have lost sight of what's important... :-)
