It's Actually Finished Finished!

I wish I could say this is only due to being so busy at work but I am a serial procrastinator with and without the help of working full time. But to make it even better I haven't just finished the stitching part I have finish finished the beanie too!!!

Actually I have been finishing a lot of projects recently and actually finishing them fairly quickly... I guess the motivation to wear them or share them with others actually works. Of course being me, I do put it off more than I should. I have always had a problem with procrastination and putting items off particularly when I want to do something else.

The crochet for this beanie has been done for a couple of weeks. It's been sitting in my bag waiting, waiting for me to bother to find my sewing needle. I only have one sewing needle for yarn.

Then came the hard part. Picking the right button. I had a collection sitting there and none of them were the same. You just need to try them all. Eventually she chose the purple of below.... A girl after my own heart :D  The purple is awesome.

*sigh* I learnt something with this whole project. Apparently my crochet gauge is really tight. No wonder I can't make crochet projects work quite right normally. But it does fit her beautifully and doesn't fall off which is a BIG bonus.

 It was surprisingly hard to get a good photo. She just didn't want to smile. Reluctant models are so difficult to work with. She just wanted to go back to her game.

I'm really bad about finishing projects but this one has been awesome. To make it even better it's barely left her head since I finished it which makes me even happier. I like making clothes and items for the kids as long as they like and enjoy them when they are finished. It makes it more enjoyable. 

I have other updates but that is enough for one post ... I will try and write another one but I have 2 assignments due in 2 weeks ... this whole work and study thing is harder than it seems. 

Happy Stitching,
