I Almost Forgot!

Between a full day of rain, a doctor's appointment and a Wednesday Witches' meeting, I almost forgot to write the blog.

Walter came in just a little while ago and asked if I was going to write the blog!

I grabbed the camera and took photos of three things of interest and got to work.

The first was the hat that I made at Witches.  Jeannie taught a different technique than I had used before, so it was interesting to try something new.  I made a hat to match Tessie's bag.  Of course that saved me from having to explain where I was all day... She grabbed them.  Let me take a photo.  And then she ran.
When I was looking for things to take along to Witches, I found this rug that I started a while ago.  I am going to have to get back to it.  I think it is one of the better antique designs that I have found on the net.  Now if I can only find the thread colors that I was using... I will be back in business.
I took my trusty traveling workshop with me to the meeting.  I happened to have the bag in there and some matching fabric.  Jeannie provided the paper pieces to work with and I used a bit of her bunka for the trim. Thanks Jeannie!  The class was fun.

I had some thin black silk ribbon in my stash so I put a bow on the back. That completed the hat. 

I forgot to put my rose making tool in the box, so the ribbon will have to do until I find it.  Then I will add a couple of roses to the back to go with the red fabric.  It was fun learning a different technique. 

Tomorrow, I am going to actually do some mini-ing!  I promise.

See you then!

Hi Casey. I'm glad to see you are feeling better. What would we do without your daily
blog report? I shutter to think!
Tessie looks quite the lady in her new hat and matching handbag. Is there a tutorial
for the hat in our future? Tomorrow perhaps? After just watching the marathon weekend
showing of Downton Abbey, it is clear that ladies of old wore a hat for everything...
shopping, dancing, meetings, church, visiting and everything besides sleeping.

Hello Casey,
The hat is just lovely...great color choice. I am happy you are getting back to that rug because it already looks like it will be a gorgeous pattern.
Big hug
