- Aunty Mum
- The past two years have been all about adjusting to motherhood and finding my way through it via craft. The out pouring of this came in the form of my blog Aunty Mum. Now I'm finally finding my feet, the children are growing, I'm getting some independence and my interests are morphing . . . into cooking. Join me in exploring creativity in many forms, food, fabric, frowns and laughter.

Another Little Hat . . . Thanks Teresa
I follow Teresa's blog every day and am always amazed at her gorgeous designs, great video tutorials and, in fact, it was Teresa that really taught me to crochet.
So, upon returning home this morning I grabbed a ball of wool and started. Teresa's pattern is designed for an adult but as I'm a Tight Hooker as Greedy for Colour often tells me my hat has turned out somewhat smaller than Teresa's pattern.
I'm also not at all happy with the quality of the photographs but I had to snap some tonight as I'm always terribly excited about a new creation (except for our Monkey that is). Tomorrow before the children head off on an exciting excersion with Nana for the day I'll try and get Kayley in a pliable mood and snap her in the hat (as she's probably the one who'll keep the hat anyway). If it's not Kayley's face you see it'll be Rogans and he's always a willing hat model . . . especially if it involves a flowery hat. The colours of this hat are dark blue with a sparkly fleck through and the flower is bright red. You'd never have guessed that now.
