new hat and more...

Monday is here and it seems like the weekend was just not long enough...

Saturday was a fun day as we went to a Big Brothers & Big Sisters activity at the Ritz Carlton. They had food, games and activities like face paint.

My husband came along and I think we both had a great time, I did see Yanique very briefly but didn't get to talk to her much.

"Littles" playing
face paint time, for kids
faint paint time, for adults (my first time!)
my hubby playing the froggy fun game

I took a lot more pictures at the event but it's been really difficult to upload them as blogger keeps rotating my photos, dunno why it does that sometimes but it's very annoying. Does this happens to you as well?

In unrelated news, while I was doing my 30 day photo challenge I completed a couple of crochet projects, one was "Dr. Who" the owl that I made for my Mom and that she loves, the other project was a hat a made for myself...

The thing with the hat project is that when I first started (in the wine color yarn) I thought I had two big balls of the same color, but once I realized the first yarn was almost over, I went nuts looking for the second ball and never did find, so at the last minute had to improvise and add an extra color to be able to finish it...

I think I came out quite good, what do you think?

Of course this is not meant to be a hat for the cold weather, but more like an accessory one. It was a very easy pattern and I am already considering making another, perhaps next giveaway? I have to think about it a bit more...

Yesterday was a very lazy day, I did get to start a new Amigurumi project from a book that I've had for a long time but I've never make anything out of it, I am start to work on a Monkey for Julian my Godson... So far I have only half a arm done...

This is the book I am talking about and the Monkey is the blue and green one on the left, although Julian's is not going to be those colors but more the traditional brown and tan color for the Monkey but the clothing might be colorful... Will continue to share my progress as I go.

Hope everybody has a great week!!!

The monkey is gorgeous, lucky Julian. You could simply earn a living by selling all those wonderful produces, I love following the progres of it all. x0

Love the hat, you look really cute in hats!! Sounds like everyone had fun at the Hotel for Big Brothers/Sisters. We had our Big Myrtle Beach Dinner Dance this past weekend. It's their major Fund Raiser. This is the first time we didn't go in 12 years. Bob went to a soccer tournament with Kelly and Madison in Lexingtong, Ky....debbie
