TWO Finished Objects!

First:

A hat.

A little retirement present for Dad.

It's a binary code hat! I got the idea and the pattern for the ones and zeros from a free pattern online. Then I had to figure out how to turn it into a hat.

The color is a little washed out here. The green is a very bright lime green.

Second:

A house!!

OK I obviously didn't make the house....and it's not quite finished. But Dad got the keys a few days ago and the contractor is finished.

Well. Except for a bunch of stuff that the first contractor screwed up and now has to be corrected. But try and work with me here people.

So if by "finished" we mean the siding is up and all the doors and windows are on and the roof is finally finished and there are porches where there didn't used to be...it's finished!


I'd show you pictures of the inside, but the batteries went dead on the camera. Use your imaginations for now, and once I'm able to take more pics, we can find out how your psychic powers are progressing.

PS. In case you were wondering. Zeke's favorite part about the house is the trash pit where the guys pile everything from scrap pieces of wood to entire cheeseburgers and empty Pepsi cans. mmmmmm yummy. Then they burn all the trash and the smells get even more intriguing and interesting. Good times for a dog.

wow, that is one cool hat! or should i say hot?? and the house ain't half bad either.

did he like the hat? he must have loved it with that pattern and the green. not another like it on the planet. wonder if the computer geeks will line up with orders...

looks like the owners of that new house are going to have to add another coat of paint soon after they move in. and i see the rear door on the west side is still missing in action.

ok, time to go throw out more stuff so we can fit into the place.

tell zeke he can have the food but leave the wood for us to burn.
