The Halloween hat I was making I said was for a friend. It was actually for my DIL in Minneapolis but I wanted to surprise her. She reads my blog and so does my son so they can keep up with what is happening with us down in IL. It was her birthday Oct. 20 so the hat was finished, packed in a box and ready to ship Tues. afternoon when I went out. Well Tues. morning I get a call from Kim (my DIL) and she is coming to Chicago on Tues. night to work with Motorola for 2 days. Well the Motorola head office is about 1/2 mile from our house. The last time she was there she came for dinner. This time she just said she couldn't do dinner but had something her Mother had given her and she was giving it to me and would drop by on the Wed. night after she left M. Well I took the hat out of the carton with her card and birthday check and kept it for her. When she came in Wed. she saw it and said I saw that on your web and said I wanted one like it. Well surprise it was for her. She was happy with it. She bought me the present which was a beautiful Irish linen tablecloth covered in lace complete with 6 napkins. I believe it is a luncheon set from the size. She said I could cut it up and make things with it but now that I look at it it would be very hard for me to cut it. Her Mom was just going to give it to Goodwill if I didn't want it. I am going to take it to Florida and see if I can use it down there, Forgive me but I forgot to take a pic of the hat but it was the same almost as the one I made last year for my daughter. Just small differences.
