I just had to share this story.  I responded to a post in an Etsy group on Facebook, someone in my area was looking for someone to do a sock monkey newborn photo prop.  They needed it in less than 2 days.  A friend was supposed to have made one, but mailed it too late to arrive in time for photos.  Now it’s the Friday before Christmas, I’m booked plus I have gifts I’m trying to get made.  What’s a person to do?

Well you guessed it I dropped everything else and went into sock monkey mode lol.  How can you not it’s for new born pictures.  The outfit was made, and we met for the delivery and I got to see the most adorable little baby boy.  I am so glad I dropped everything and made this outfit for her.  I don’t usually get to see people when they receive these photo props.  It was gratifying to see the excitement on her and her husband’s face when they saw the outfit.  I can only hope that everyone looks like that when they receive one of my outfits.

This outfit was fun to make, thinking of several more variations!

Here a Hat, There a Hat, Everywhere a Hat

As the weather cools down hats become popular again.  Have been working on lots of hats!

The black and white is a simple beanie in variegated yarn, love this.  The creme colored hat is a thick yarn with sequins and is very chic.  The mint green hat is just gorgeous.  I made this on Friday and sold the first one on Saturday.  The button on the flower is a vintage button.  I love the vintage buttons!

And as a nod to those still in warmer climates I made a black version of
a sun hat.  I absolutely love this hat pattern.  I rarely use other
people’s patterns for hats, but I found this one and loved it.  The
pattern can be found at
