new pattern

Looking back I realized that it has been a while since I have posted an original pattern. Fortunately, in my crazed attempt at a homemade Christmas this year, I have created a new original pattern. Now before you get all excited, it isn't much. Just a simple headband for one of my girls. Of course, this does mean that I will have to design a second headband since we all know that sisters don't share well and often don't want to have the same exact thing. Okay, reality is that it makes it lots easier for me if they each have their own design. That way when they start with the "that's MY headband!", "Nuh uh! Mom made this one for me!", I can look at it and tell which one goes to which girl. Ahhh, mom really IS smarter than she looks!
