Syd is a completely different person post ear-tubes. Not only is she not set off by the most minor of things all the time but she is also talking up a storm. She is repeating stuff (finally!) and naming things. Her favorite things to point out are cars (“ca”), dogs (“duh”) and birds (“kaka”). She will also make little woof-woofs and moo-moo’s when desired. Our house of relative silence (unless you count crying) has been infiltrated with precious babble and it’s amazing.
I finished this hat on Friday just in time for our rainy day on Saturday. Syd loves hats and I thought she needed one for summer. This one is the reversible bucket hat from Oliver + S Little Things to Sew. It went together quickly. The fussy parts are pinning and going slow since you are sewing in circles.
I need to make a few more to make her summer wardrobe complete and I hope they get a bit easier. It is reversible which also makes it trickier to sew, but it would look dumb unless you made it this way. The fabrics are what I ordered in anticipation of the ‘government shut down’ that never happened. They are both Michael Miller prints.
I apologize for the crummy photos but you can get the idea…the lighting was never right this weekend and Syd didn’t always want to model for me…imagine that!
