While I Was Away...

I've been gone for a while trying to close out the end of another school year.  The kids  have gone home and I have a few more days of work still. 

I've been unrealistically busy...both with work and with the hooks.  I finally finished all the  hats.  In the end I satisfied all but one and I had several hats remaining.  I'm thinking of crocheting her a headband and putting it in the mail.

Out of all the hats, I was not satisfied with this one.  New pattern; too little time to see what the problem was and she wanted this one.  It's a cool pattern and I know it works so I won't be defeated.  My cousin wants a hat from this pattern, so I'll make another go of it after I'm rested.  It's amazing how rest makes patterns all the more clear.  :-)

The kiddies wearing their hats on the last day of school. 

There is so much more to share, but I have some deadlines to meet and I don't want to bore you with too much too soon.  LOL  In the meantime, I'm just going to sip on this fruit smoothie I whipped up just now and catch my breath!

Ingredients:  fresh pineapple, fresh papaya, 1 banana, a couple of fresh frozen strawberries, a little water and orange juice to thin out the smoothie

Directions:  Blend until smooth.

    Were the children happy with their rewards? I bet the word has spread among youger students: 'Ms. Libby makes hats as an end of the year present for her class' 'Really? I want to be in her class next year!'
