Completed: Cloche for Little Girl

Gosh I love how this turned out! I just hope it fits the little girl I have in mind to give it to. I used this pattern: http://crochet.about.com/od/hats/a/crocheted-cloche-hat-free-pattern.htm and I used a different flower: http://tallennl.livejournal.com/13248.html. I used the pattern for the large flower.

I know I  mentioned in a previous post that my gauge was way off so I had to down-size my hook from a G to a D. I modified the ruffle by using triple crochets and slip stitches instead of double crochets and single crochets. I'm not fond of patterns that say to crochet until project reaches a certain size but overall, I am happy with the results. 

Hope everyone is having a great week.

(Credit) Card Services--Identity Thieves Called AGAIN

I have been fighting this company and have made innumerable reports to the "Do Not Call" registry and "Card Services" keep calling me. Twice last month they called and I let it slide. My husband said he also answered when they called. The number they called from today (12:35 pm) is a wireless number 347-504-4345. They steal identities and cause a lot of problems for people so watch out if you get a call from them. I'm off to file ANOTHER report.
