Like My New Hat?

Look what my son made for me!

I provided the fabrics, of course, but he did the sewing. This is more 'me' than the ones available in the stores ;- )

I'm seriously thinking of dressing up the brim with feathers or adding a beaded hatband or something. Considering the lateness of the hour I may end up wearing it as-is this year. That gives me 365 days to come up with just the right embellishments for next year.

Once again I'm surprised that it's been so long since my last post. What have I been doing? Hmm... I finished the second Gizzy Quilt I was working on. Guess I forgot to photograph it in its finished state. Oops. When I realized that the auction was this weekend, not next, I sort of panicked. I delivered the quilts and then had to spend the rest of the day recovering. Then there was the whole day auditioning hat fabrics, and here we are!

oh, that hat is wonderful! I love the fabrics! I think it's perfect without anything else added! However, I am sure you will find just the perfect thing to jazz it up! I love it that your son made it for you!!!! I read down below and the Halloween quilt is spooktacular!
The shoo fly is pretty awesome too! The humane society one is nice but sedate, like you said and I would be sorely tempted to slap some applique on there...but thats just me!
You are so right about those houses! I drafted a paper foundation pattern and have been making them all week! I am doing a swap and must get finished! I will be so happy when all the swaps are finished! I am going to write you more soon- I haven't had my coffee yet.
Happy Halloween, witchy woman!
I love ya!

Marvelous hat ~ yes, I see feathers encircling the rim and some sparkles here and there (hot fix crystals take only a few minutes...)

Have fun wearing it!
