Card for Amy and Hygge Cloud Crochet Hat

 Sitting here trying to get this post made and I am freezing. It's only the start of January and I'm so done with winter. I have a condition called Raynaud's syndrome. So my hands and feet get extra cold and turn purple and white. It gets very painful sometimes. I have my cup of coffee so that is helping.

Today I wanted to share with you a card that I made for my niece Amy for her birthday. Her and her family recently moved back here from Illinois. Her husband retired from the Air Force and I'm so happy to have them back home after all these years away. 

 Awhile back Amy had bought an antique pitcher and matching tray from me. So I thought I would make her a card with a pitcher on it.

I thought the pitcher looked good with the tin tile embossing folder. I am planning on getting several more markers. I don't have very many. So I am limited on colors to use. But I think the colors I had worked o.k.

Also thought I would show you all the hat I crocheted my grand daughter Scarlett for Christmas. She had ask me if I could make her one. 
 I tried making a hat once and it didn't turn out so was nervous about attempting it again. But I thought I would give it another try since she ask. 

So here is the hat that I made for her.

After I started crocheting. It really wasn't as hard as I first thought. I had found the video on youtube and she explained the pattern pretty well. I used Hygge yarn by Red Heart in the colors Plum Candy and Pearl. 

The yarn is so super soft. I love to feel it. I picked up the pom pom at JoAnns or Michaels. Can't remember.  

If you would like to give this hat a try you can find it on youtube called How to crochet Hygge Cloud Hat. I watched the one for left handed but there is also one in right handed. The video is by Tamara Kelly. Oh and Scarlett LOVED the hat,

 That's all from me today. Got some dreaded house cleaning to do. The grandkids are spending the night with us. So I need to get my things done now. Happy day to you all and God bless!
