WiP Wednesday: Success and Not Quite

I was having a bit of a panic moment last week when I realized all I still needed to do before the holidays and how quickly they are approaching. However, after a few days of hard work I THINK I may be able to get it all done, maybe. Several of the things that I'm working on fall into the success category and one is firmly in the not quite a success. I'm linking up with WiP Wednesday.

This is definitely a success!! I am so so happy with how it turned out and it came out almost exactly how I pictured! The New York Modern Quilt Guild is doing a double wedding ring challenge. There is a modern category where you can enter any variation that suits your fancy. I had the idea where I could take the little wedge pieces and use them to make flower petals. I just adore it!! 

Here's a closeup of my quilting in progress. I used variegated thread in the same-ish colors as the flowers. All I need to do on this is finish the quilting and then get it bound. It is due by Dec. 1st. I bet I can get it done!

This one falls into the not quite a success. I was thinking about working up some football hats and I found this team colors yarn. I thought it would be perfect. Well, I've become a yarn snob I guess because it feels kind of yucky and it's really hard to work with. I had to make this one twice because it worked up much bigger than it was supposed to.

Attempt number two was more of a success and my little man adores it! However, I won't be able to put it in my shop because of the size variation problems and because it just doesn't feel up to my standard.

I am in love with this hat. Especially the colorway that my customer chose. I think they are just perfect!! You can buy one of your own here.

I also got an order for my most loved hat! This foxy is sure getting a lot of attention. It comes in all sizes from baby to adult. The customer asked me to add ear flaps this time and I really like it!
