Crazy Hat Day

My son is having Crazy Hat Day at school soon. Although he has what I would consider a few crazy hats already, he asked if I'd make him one. How could I resist? Here's what I made:His mouth is a little funny because he has a tooth barely hanging on by a root, and he keeps pushing it with his tongue.

A little close-up of the moon's face. I love sewing faces because no matter what you imagine and aim for, it always takes on a life of its own. The other side isn't as dear as this side is to me.

Little O got the idea of a sleep cap from one of his favorite movie's Thomas' Magic Railroad, and as soon as the hat was done, he ran downstairs with his cap on to play trains.

Of course, now I have to sew one for C and M. I have no plans to go out in this frigid weather, and sewing will be a perfect plan for the week.

Have a blessed day!

Oh, I love this hat!
You did a wonderful job!
God bless-

Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest;
Home-keeping hearts are happiest,
For those that wander they know not where
Are full of trouble and full of care;
To stay at home is best.

Weary and homesick and distressed,
They wander east, they wander west,
And are baffled and beaten and blown about
By the winds of the wilderness of doubt;
To stay at home is best.

Then stay at home, my heart, and rest;
The bird is safest in its nest;
O'er all that flutter their wings and fly
A hawk is hovering in the sky;
To stay at home is best.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
