I've been crocheting...

Do you ever start a craft project with the intentions of only making one of the particular item and before you know it the project has taken on a life of its own?

Yeah, that’s exactly what happened to me with crocheting baby hats. I started out with simply wanting to make the baby Owen a hat, but after making one I wanted to just tweak the pattern a bit and before you know it I had found four more sites with hat patterns and even created a few of my own. So far Owen has two hats both I’m only semi happy with and a few others I’ll probably donate. The hats are just so easy to make and you can do a full one in about an hour. It was a perfect project for me while I spent a few hours in the recliner.

If you want to make your own hat I used the following links for my patterns.

Seventh Generation Winner!

So I was just reminded by Matt that in all the excitement of starting the weekend I forgot to post our Seventh Generation giveaway winner on Friday like I promised.

First many of you answered the question correctly in that there are 63 hazardous products found in the average American home. (according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission).

And the winner of our giveaway was Lois S. who liked the OnOurWay page on facebook
