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

  1. I came through from WIP Wednesday. Your fleece hat is so adorable! I just love his little face. I would totally wear that hat all winter and keep my head toasty warm. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. The wolf hat is so cute! And the Chritmas ornaments are looking good too.

    Happy Thanksgiving.
