Rainy Day Picnic

Today I was pretty motivated. I walked, got my newest dress together all but the zipper (I had put the dress in time out for several days because I didn't like the way it was going together), and I finished the granny square blanket I have been working on (just the fringe left). Since I was so good I treated myself to an ice coffee and a donut. I had planned to have a nice little picnic but as soon as happy hour rolled around it started raining. The little park I like to play at has baseball and softball fields so I camped out and had my picnic in a dugout. 
I've been wanting to show off my donut hat for a while now, I finally get to.
A friend pinned this Donut hat a few months back and I knew I had to make one. I used a hat I already had but it was so bumpy it was hard to paint, I had to outline everything to get it to show up. When it was wet a cat jumped on the hat, pink paint got everywhere (see the paw print on the straw?). I need to get some tan paint to paint the top and the edges to even out the look. This time I will lock it in the back room while it dries.
Strawberry glazed donuts with sprinkles are probably my favorite type of donut but today they were all out :( I had to settle for no sprinkles.

Back to putting on fringe
