More Than One Hat

Filed Under Patterns 

As I was working on this little quilt, I was thinking about the expression “wearing many hats,” as in serving many functions in life. We all wear many hats in the course of our busy lives.

In my home life, I’m a domestic engineer, chief cook (but thankfully not bottle washer), dog cuddler/care overseer, cat lap provider/care overseer, foster kitten mom, vet clinic assistant, quilter, and the list goes on.

In my professional life, I’m a designer, quiltmaker, illustrator, writer, page layout, typographer, editor, publisher, marketing department, paperwork shuffler, accountant, stock room supervisor, fulfillment services, the entire packing and shipping department. For my booth at shows I’m the schlepper, setter upper, public relations, the information desk, educational department, sales representative, customer service, cashier, and whatever else I need to be.

I called this quilt More Than One Hat to represent all the hats that each one of us wears every day. I know your list is just as long as mine. :) How many will you wear today? Here’s hoping they are your favorites!

    Whew!! That’s alot of hats!! :-) Today my hat is going to be “blood donator”. I set this up weeks ago, after the Las Vegas shootings, but the day I was supposed to go in was the first day of the Santa Rosa firestorm, and they were closed (so many people lost power and phone service), and didn’t end up being able to open till last Friday. So my appointment is back on!! Yay!! It’s the only thing I could think of to do to help out the Las Vegas area.
    Hope you are doing well!!!
