After a busy time I was looking forward to walking the dogs, talking to my husband, and a little sewing.
Things didn't turn out that way today.
Instead a man I know well and like a lot, a former head of a political party at home, had to resign because of allegations of sexual impropriety with a staff.
Yes I know. Him too.
This meant instead of a nice quiet day I had to do some radio commentary and a TV interview via Skype from the rv, with my husband frantically running around to get me set up and to keep the dogs out of the shot.
If you are interested, and you are probably not, here is a link to the TV interview.
The day left me rattled, as far as I had known, this was a decent man, nice wife, lovely daughters.
I needed to sew to get myself settled again.
So I pulled out a cardigan I really wanted to make and had cut out at home before we left.
Turns out that I also left the front pieces back in Halifax, probably in the garbage, probably long gone to the landfill.
Well some days its best not to expect too much.
Appreciating that this was not a point in time to raise my expectations I settled on making myself a head band unit I had made for my daughter, DIL, and niece for Christmas.
My hair is nothing to write home about at the best of times and camping hair is the sort of thing you want to cover up.
It seemed a good day to make a head wrap so I did.
Here is the terrific free pattern I used from Patterns for Pirates. Super easy. PFP has some other cool free patterns too - all worth a look.
This headband can be worn as a head wrap, a slouch hat, a neck cowl, and well as, well a headband.
Here is me in some of those versions, artfully shot in the inside of the rv with my frazzled self inside. The fabric is a lovely bamboo knit from Fabric Crush:
I am pretty sure all I want to happen tomorrow is,
Might make more of these though.
