My Orange Crush and Hats

Well, the thunderstorms have finally hit us here in Eastern Kentucky! Last night around 2am Andrew and I were outside trying to move a couple of the horses to better shelter before the storm hit. Richard called to tell me that they were giving severe storm warnings for us. Our electric usually goes off almost every time that it rains but for some reason it didn't last night.

Anyway, this morning I sewed my Orange Crush together!!! Now I just need to add borders. I think I will just put a plain border on it, but I'm not sure which color I will use yet...

Then in the afternoon, I made these two welder caps for Richard and Hunter, I still need to do Andrew's. They love to wear these things so I bought the pattern to make them some. And the best thing about it is they are reversible! But I made these out of the same fabric on both sides since they were my first ones and I was afraid I would screw them up!!!
I have to run into town in the morning and then follow my sister to drop her car off at the garage to have some work done on it. Hunter has decided he wants to go to the 6 days of Summer School!!! Can you believe that??? The kid that hates school and threatened to drop out of kindergarten wants to go to Summer School!!! Of course he doesn't have to go for his class it is optional and all they will be doing is mostly playing. I guess we will have to wait and see if he makes it all 6 days!!!! I bet he doesn't!!!

YAH for your orange crush top...almost done!

Summer school? 6 days?? Well, if it gives you a little me time why argue?? :) Silly boy!

Your OC turned out great looking. I agree on using a solid color border - to help control all the other colors.

Hey, the hats turned out very professional looking. You are the talented lady seamstress.

I just love the Orange Crush it turned out great. Way to go on the hats how cool.

I say let him try summer school. He probably just wants to play with his friends.

Really like your Orange Crush. I still need to put my blocks together but that will have to wait until next week due to house hunting this weekend. Love those welders caps. You did a great job on them.

I like the idea of 6 days of summer school. I hope he enjoys it.

I would use a dark solid colored fabric for the border. The hats are great.
