I finished stitching my Showstopping hat. I know it's good because Chickee immediately asked me to make her one :) I guess that could be criteria #8 of what makes a Showstopper (see previous discussions this past week about what makes a showstopper). Criteria #8 is if Chickee likes it, it's a showstopper.
A few of you have mentioned, and I agree, that sometimes when looking for a project to make, you may want to make something that is not a showstopper, but something that is easy, repetitious and functional with a nice result. Showstoppers are great, but they may be harder to stitch or require more concentration. What's a nice word that doesn't have a negative connotation for one of those projects? A stitch repeater? A rerun? A favorite! A staple? A go-to! Of course, with Go Crochet, it would be a "Go-to" project. Some of you feel this way about my Driftwood Cap :)
School is closed today. It's just now starting to flurry, but the whole city seems to be panicking about the impending snow. I know what I'll be doing today... making another showstopping hat for Chickee while testing and writing the pattern. Have a great day.
