Hats and other warm stuff

My mother was an excellent knitter, and we always had hats, mittens, scarves, and the whole shebang when growing up.  My father used to say, 'Need mittens?  Wait an hour; your mother will knit you a pair'.   She was That Good.

Well, I don't knit. (sorry mom).  I do sew, however, and I like to sew polar fleece, so I make hats.  The problem is, I keep losing my hats!  I just had to make another one today.
Somewhere out there, there are a lot of people wearing the hats that I've dropped or left behind.  I hope their heads are warm.  I'll just make another one.
Here's the latest.

So I made a couple of them this time.  All of these hats come from the first two Polarfleece Pizzaz! books.  They have wonderful patterns for all sorts of fantastic polar fleece items.

Happy New Year 2014!

I started out my new year by sewing again for the shelter animals.

Here is another picture:
