A nice sensible hat...

...doesn't stay that way for long in these here parts. I can't be trusted with them at all.

Apart from this bit of fun today, it's all been a bit quiet on the sewing front. I'm drowning in to-do lists and dreaming CAD patternmaking lines (the list story might be suffering a bit of hyperbolic embellishment, but sadly I'm not exaggerating about the dreams!!). I also seem to have some sort of weird sleeping sickness - not sure if it's a virus or absolute exhaustion.... or maybe it's just hyperbolic embellishment syndrome?

Anyway - Welcome to my nightmare.....


I must get back to measuring lines to within two decimal places of a millimetre. Talk soon.

PS. Thanks to all the button-linkers!! When I get a mo to do some tweaking I'll make a linky list!

As an autocad draftsman for a living I could feel the pain, especially since I have just finished my 10 hour day staring at the thing.
I love LOVE LOVE the hats!

Love the hat Nikki! Why be sensible when you can have some fun. Try to get a good night's sleep - and see you in the morrow!

Oh Nikki you'd get on with hubs - he too uses CAD (Autocad to be exact) he is a draftsman. He has offered to draw up some of my patterns too. Gee I'm lucky...

Who needs sensible? I LOVE the new hat! What will life be without colour and fun? I have to make lists all the time to keep focused because I tend to digress, like with sewing - I make a list of projects and when I sit down in my sewing room I soon find myself wanting to do something completely different! I have learnt that it is better to "go with the flow" and do what you want to do, but sometimes we can't. Bummer! Good luck with your pattern making. I cannot wait to see what you launch next!

God I love the shape of that hat. Is this a new pattern in the making?
