Ok, well this is my latest project. I'd like to get the brim a bit less rolled, but it's ok as is I guess. It looks little in the photo, but is adult size. The flower is pinned on.

Very nice. I have never crocheted any clothing items, although I do have a pattern for fingerless mittens I want to try.  I mainly do afghans, prayer shawls, and Christmas ornaments.

This is so cute! Love the colour, too.

What a charming hat! And that's a glorious color but, then, I love blues, all blues. Do tell, what colors do you wear it with?

Thank you for all the nice complements!  I'm not sure what I'll wear it with, Styyna.  It's cotton, so I was thinking of it for the spring/summer.  I imagine myself in a little sundress walking around the farmer's market wearing my cute little hat, but in reality I'll probably just end up wearing it while slogging around taking the dogs for a walk while sweating like nobody's business. LOL.  :lol:

Oohhhh...a white sundress with a bag with flowers and a loaf of bread sticking out.  You would be ever more cute!  You can slog nicely with the dog. A nice over sized sweater and leggings and your cute little hat walking the dog on a nice spring blue sky tinges with a few fluffy clouds and while flowers everywhere!

And I agree with MJ! SusieQ, you have a way with word pictures.

Our lovely Lucy, would look simply marvelous no matter what she wears!  Styyna, I think I've been listening/watching the Honest Guys videos. Sooo relaxing and calming... :meditate:

I made this little lady this week.   She hides in her little flower when she's feeling shy.  :)
 She stands about 4 1/2" tall when fully upright.

Thank you, SusanG.  I'm going to give her to my little 2-year old niece for Easter.   For some reason, I enjoy working on a project much more when I have a recipient in mind during the process.  :)

She's darling, ILuvLucy! How clever and skillful you are!

Your niece will adore it because of its charm and its "action."

I know what you mean about enjoying projects more when you have a recipient in mind. Nearly all of my projects that are for me are languishing as WIPs (works in progress). Many projects that start out for me end up being for others. And then for Christmas I knitted up a storm for others. The trick is finding recipients who appreciate handmade gifts. So far I've lucked out!
