Branching out

SO---I made my first hat. I've done some crochet work in the past, but this is some hard-core sewing!
I made it all by hand, all by me-self :)
I'm sure the next one will go quicker and more neatly, but this first one has more charm to it, I think.

BIG NEWS! I move into my new apartment this month!! How exciting. AND--It will have my very own Etsy studio room!! WHOO!

You can't imagine how much of a step up this is for me! Right now I have:

--one room
--no washer or dryer
-- no dish washer
-- no cable TV
--- one bathroom

It's like I'm living in the woods! (Oh, and props to Thoreau for the quote ... he knew all about living in the woods.)

I will put up pictures as soon as I finish DECORATING! Ah..the best part of any move. :)
Also, I think a trip to IKEA is in order.  
Sweedish meatballs...mmmmm....

I've never been to Ikea, but I fear that when I do I shall never be able to leave!

I look forward to seeing snaps of the new place - I'm yearning to move to London at the moment so it's good to have other peoples' moves to live vicariously through ;)

Love the hat!

Yay for making something with your own two hands! I'm in the process of making my first scarf, so I totally get the excitement :)

Gotta love Thoreau and Ikea's sweetish meatballs! What fine tastes you have! Is the pink hat you are wearing the one you are talking about? I love it either way!

Ikea is great for a small new apartment, we just keep going back there for the little things!

Your first hat is really beautiful and when I know it's the first, I think your futures hats will be fantastics!
