“where’s my hat?”
It occurred to me shortly after the bus pulled away from the bus stop upon letting me off last night that my favorite winter hat was still on the bus. I walked off pouting to myself about how that was the only hat that was warm, fit just right, and didn’t look like something I picked up at the flea market. Thankfully I arrived at my door before the tantrum could kick in. I walked in to an empty house, so the only thing to do was complain to my good friend FB. FB is always there wondering what my status is. What am I doing, thinking, talking about, looking at, dreaming of….come to think of it, FB is pretty nosy.
Anyways, I realized that if I reviewed the bus schedule I could figure out when this bus would be coming back by my house. So I did just that. I waited for the next two hours until the bus was due to come back by, walked up to the stop and waited some more. In the cold. Finally the bus came, and sure enough, my hat was there waiting for me. I’m so thankful! I also have a new pair of mitten-gloves that I bought a few days ago from the fair trade store up the street from mi casa. The mitten-gloves are made from Alpaca wool by women in Bolivia. They are sooo warm and incredibly practical!
So what did I do with my two hours of waiting for the bus to return? I sewed, of course! I decided to make something kind of random, but I have been wanting to do this for a while. I made some sunglass cases, and by the third try, I think I got my pattern to be just right. (I was determined to make my own pattern and not use someone else’s. So these are truly an ID original!) Here they are in order of first try to third. The third case can be found in my shop, and I will put the second one up soon.
