WIP Wednesday and a Wolf Hat

I found my hat pattern!  That means I was able to make my daughter's winter hat.  I did not realize how uninspired I was to make a new hat until I started making it.  As it came together I remembered how much I love to make fleece hats.  As I mentioned in my last post I have tweaked my pattern.  I now have the perfect (for me) pattern for size 21" and 22" head circumference.  The original pattern that I used was this fleece hat tutorial and if you browse through her gallery you will find the inspiration for this wolf hat.
I even got to see my daughters reaction to her hat.  I leave for work in the morning before the kids are up, so I normally miss out on things like that.  Unfortunately and fortunately, my daughter woke up around 2 in the morning a little out of sorts,  I couldn't help myself and showed her her new hat.  She lit right up!

Now onto my Works in Progress...

Prince Charming Quilt!!!!  I will have a post about it along with it's story later this week (hopefully).

Oh, yes, I did it.  I started something new.  I am not sure what it will be, but it is started.  I have a lot of small scraps from my Nearly Hexagon Charm Quilt.  It has been in the back of my mind wondering what to do with them.  Last night I decided to make a scrappy block.  Making a large block was a little harder then I thought it would be.  What I ended up with was 4 - 4 1/2" blocks.  I plan to make more blocks with other colour ranges.  Please, if you have any suggestion on what I should do with these blocks, shoot them my way.

Progress Made
Christmas Ornaments, One nearly done - I am sure this will be ongoing until Christmas.
Flurry Wall Quilt, I have one more block made and 8 out of the 12 white blocks cut out.  I should have had more, but my scraps that you see above distracted me.

No Progress
Nearly Hexagon Charm Quilt
Christmas Pillows
Plain Spoken Quilt
