Dr. Seuss meets Project Runway

Tick-tock the morning clock.

No hat, nor sock. Over here? Under there? Under the bed? A look of dread.

Will she? Won't she?
Have a hat today I pray?
Yes! Yes she will! Have a hat today I say!

Make it new for you?
Yes! Yes, it's true!
I will make a new for you!

Have no fear nor dread!

Grab the glue, no time for thread!

Stand back! The scissors fly. Hot glue - don't ask why! Give it a try!

Too big? Too small? Too short? Too tall? More red you said?

Lose the bow! What do I know? More squish, less squash, It's prefect oh my gosh!

Happy, happy yes I see. You are happy! Yes indeed!

My own little Project Runway challenge this morning. Create a Dr. Seuss hat comparable to last year's carefully crafted paper hat that suddenly went missing. Time 30 minutes. Using only the materials readily available in the craft room - I used white pre-quilted batting and lots of ribbons. While getting 2 children ready for school.

I was channelling Jillian as I was self-inflicting myself with globs of hot glue and working up until the last second. In my mind Tim Gunn gave me a non-committal, "hmmmmm". Heidi Klum asked "Haven't we seen this look before from you?"

Okay, enough fun for one morning. Liv wants to play chess an

d I have a pile of laundry & some St Patty's day tags to finish! Ciao!

Love the hat. Great smile. I would say she was pleased. Wanted to let you know that Miss Banna got her suncatcher and she loves it. It is now residing in her bedroom window. Thank you so much she says.
