Out of the basket: Stoner beanie

well i have been very into my basket this last week or so, 
and with the completion of another set of night duties 
came the completion of a project from the basket........


when i headed up to Nundle little Miss (my youngest) put in a request for 
some wool for a beanie
of all the beautiful colours i could of bought, she was adamant 
 she wanted black

 this is the completed beanie
she calls it a stoner beanie, i asked why


 she shrugged and said " i don't know"
i offered maybe it is because they can hide  their pot in the back of the hat
she grinned and said maybe

anyway she is thrilled with her beanie and apparently i have a few commissions
it was very popular at school



this is a sneak peak of another project in the basket, it's been lingering 
deep down in the bottom of the basket for a while
and has finally made it's way back into my hands i must say i am enjoying it and am playing with new methods 
of stitching thanks to chookyblue and farm girl




and  this is my supervisor and constant companion, Cooper
i had the opportunity to have some stitching time yesterday afternoon
so i made a pot of tea and set up in the lounge room
it was nice and sunny and everyone else was at work / school
a rare peaceful period

i did some stitching and cooper did some supervising the best way he knows how
with his eyes shut......


Hope your having a great day

Great photos in your posts-Nundle sounds like a great place to visit, maybe one day- I have a stitching companion like Cooper as well- usually just snoozing too unless a plane or helicopter flies over and then he is all action as he tries to run after it. Silly boy!
