I am reasonably certain that the only craft at which I am not a virgin is that of making fancy, feathery headwear. I LOVE hats and fascinators, and I put feathers on everything I can. So, naturally, when my friend invited me to a fancy afternoon tea at a castle, my first thought was “I’ll have to make a new hat.”
So that’s what I did tonight. She and I got together and made some cute pieces for our date on Sunday. When I don’t have a ton of time to mess around, I like to start with feathers that are pre-arranged, and then add embellishments.
Breanna’s hat is flashier, which I love for special occasions. For those of you who don’t already know about the infamous “bird nest” here is a picture of the hat I made and sported for The Muse’s rehearsal dinner.
In addition to the millinery power hour, I also managed to get another set of blocks cut. I was so intimidated by cutting at first, but now I definitely have the hang of it, and I’m excited about how quickly I’m getting them done. I think I might tackle the Lime blocks this weekend, since Lime promises to be the biggest challenge. Here are my blocks sitting in a row in the drawer. So pretty!!!
I have a lot planned for the weekend, but I have promised myself that time will be made for yoga and crafting.
