Do you remember a while back when my granddaughter M was rummaging through my waste basket saving all my wool snippets. She had a project in mind and needed wool snippets to incorporate into it. Well today she came by for a little visit to work in their vegetable garden out back and she brought me her felt hat to show me.
It's not quite finished and she wants to add a couple of pheasant feathers and also a couple of peacock feathers. I think that she is doing a fantastic job. It has three sides although my photograph doesn't show it,
Here is a close up of her ribbon flowers and fancy stitches to reinforce seams in her felt hat.
N is giving her two thumbs up this time as she sporting the hat.
Today was amazingly warm and sunny. It was a beautiful day to work outdoors and I got on my knees and weeded three of my flower beds. I'm so grateful that I could pull some chickweeds and creeping Charlies before the tulips grows taller. I just wish that I would have had a whole week to do the rest but it's supposed to rain tomorrow and Tuesday. I was so focused in my job that I didn't take any pictures and then it got too dark.
I did a load of laundry which I was going to hang on the line because it was so nice outside but I stayed outdoors and pull weeds until my neck was paining too much. Now since it's supposed to rain tomorrow I just threw the clothes in the dryer. Oh well, pulling weeds was a first priority.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. JB
