You are one impressive lady. I hope your time in hospital flies by. In the meantime, that's a great little hat! I may just have to try that pattern. I look forward to the next instalment from your hospital-stay sewing diary. :)

Melissa - once you are out of the hospital you should seek "SA" (Sewists Anonomys) for your addicition! Haha - you are such an inspiration. I am hoping all goes well for you! Now that hat is adorable! I love it. It's going to be very functional and super cute all at the same time!

Cute hat. I'm sending my best wishes for you....I'm so sorry to hear about your health problems. You are an inspiration to anyone! I hope your hospital stay goes very quickly...I'm so glad that your Mom can be there with you....Mom's always make kids feel better, no matter the age. My 41 yo son still thinks so! You'll be in my thoughts and prayers. Good Luck..thank goodness you are healthy otherwise!

Cool hat! I love your idea of topstitching circles around the brim. The portable machine seems to be doing alright. Keep it going!

Very cute. I was thinking of giving this one a try because I spend a lot of time out in my garden and I think I'm frying my brain. Congrats on actually getting projects together to sew while you're in hospital; I hope it makes the time pass easier for you. And I love your tiny red sewing machine.
