Motown Moods

So what's the reason for the title of this post?

Yesterday, before leaving school and making my way to Eagle Rock, I downloaded some classic music by Stevie Wonder.  Now I don't care if you're a millennial or a baby boomer, you've at least grown up on some Stevie.  He's just a cold brother.  (smile)  Here's one of my favorite songs...

His music sort of gave me an idea on what to make next.  Don't think that I deserve to be thrown in a loony bin for saying this, but I find myself seeing colors when I hear musical notes.  That's just me.  I thought about stitching up some hats inspired by some of Stevie's greatest songs.  So be on the lookout for that (I should be done some time during Spring Break).

I'll be leaving this post on a big, nasty cliffhanger (To Be Continued...yuck).

Craigslist Jackpot

Ah, the wonders of Craigslist...
I made a trip down to the Eagle Rock area of Los Angeles and got this stash for a Jackson.*
*What I mean by a Jackson is twenty dollars.  I tend to speak in my own little dialect.  :p

Fine stash, I tell you

New Spring Crowns

Busy as usual, knocking out my homework and exams before Spring Break (and the Cesar Chavez holiday this coming Monday), but today I have two more hats listed in my Soulful Stitchery shop.

A warrior-themed tam for the ladies
 And since we're on the subject of Spring...

Here's a lavender-colored baseball cap

In Earthquake Country

This morning, just before 6:30am, I felt a slight jolt.  It was what I like to call a "baby earthquake."  Nothing serious, unlike Northridge in 1994.  I turned on my favorite local news station (shouts out to the KTLA Morning News) to get the anchors' takes on the tiny tremor.

That leads to this question:  Is the big one coming?

My answer:  If it happens, it happens.  Most times, the news puts out (excuse my French) bullshit to begin with so they can garner ratings.

Another question:  Are you prepared for the next big one?

My answer:  You better damn well be.  I know I am.

My blog's officially in business!!!

I know I had to take another hiatus...exams needed to be passed and homework needed to be turned in.  With all that said...

I am ready to start shipping my hats everywhere instead of staying local (though that doesn't mean that I'm not going to be local anymore).  And if anybody sees that cute little TripleClicks banner on the side, that's where you'll find me.  (smile)

First up, let me introduce a few of the tams I have listed on the site:

Colorful Crocheted Tam

Southwestern Fedora

Ribbon Tam
