You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

You Are My Sunshine

As I sort through the "stash" of yarn I've acquired I'm struck by how many skeins of 100% cotton I have on hand.  I shouldn't be. I know how every skein got there and why!  Dishcloths.  If you have ever used a handmade, cotton dishcloth whether it was knitted or crocheted you would know what I mean and never want to use anything else.  Luckily I haven't had to; my mother and grandmother have seen to that. These little  gems clean like none other and they last forever. They wash and dry beautifully and actually get better with time. 
 After my grandmother passed away and my mother was no longer able to knit I began the task of replenishing my supply myself. Every Time I saw a new color of cotton I'd grab it. But let's face it , one can only use so many dishcloths, so I began making and giving them  as gifts until I grew tired of that too.  So the question became WHAT NOW?  
How do I FINALLY FINISH using up the cotton stash? 

 Baby Sun Hats, that's how. 


Thanks to the creative genius of Pinterest I discovered the best sunhat pattern ever by designer 
"KerryJayneDesigns" from Bournemouth England 
and I am hooked, and really, there is nothing cuter if you ask me. I've given them as gifts and they were well received. 



 Let's welcome summer and protect those precious little faces too!

You'll never know dear how much I love you, so please don't take my sunshine 
away!
