GOULIES AND GHOSTS






Last Cct. when I went to the CQI retreat in Colorado a couple of the gals were making Crazy Quilted Halloween hats and I thought they were great. I decided to start one when I returned but only got it pieced before we took off for Florida.
I got it out this week and finished the embellishments and then yesterday I sewed it together. The sewing is finished and here is the hat. It is going to my daughter to use as part of her Halloween decorations.

I am thinking of maybe making myself one but will see what else I have to finish before I start something else. You know all those UFO's that we all have. If I am not interested in finishing something I will just toss it or give it away to one of the charity groups. I am finally at the point where I don't feel I have to finish everything. The journey of just learning something new that I became interested in is enough without the finished item. No more guilt feelings either.

Your CQ hat is fabulous. I love all the work you have put into this unique Halloween hat. I have been thinking a lot of Halloween even though I am in no hurry...

It looks great, Freda! I bet your daughter will get lots of compliments on it come October.

OOOH! I loved this witch hat, too, and bought a pattern. I plan to piece mine this month and bring it along to the Retreat in September. Yours is lovely, Freda. Great minds think alike, hehehe. Hugs, Cathy
