Yesterday was our monthly CQTeers meeting and we had been challenged last month by Irene to 'do something' with the hats she gave us. It's always fun to see what the three of us manage to come up with and this challenge was no exception.
Here is Irene (who issued the challenge)
modeling her chic cloche...
and here is Sue, looking ever
so spring-like in her creation...
and I, being a rebel, HAD to
do something radically different...
I never wear a hat (unless it's frigid cold and I might be
convinced to find a toque and put it on). I removed the
stiffening in the brim and then wondered what I
could use it for. Some embroidery was added
and it became a plant holder.
Hmmm.....not quite what Irene intended perhaps?
For those who might be curious, the basic hats we
were given all looked like the base in Sue's creation.
Here's another of the entries from my mothers' autograph book; this one dated Feb 27, 1939...
Many are sure in this book to write,
perhaps words of love to thee indite,
but for loving wishes for future bliss,
sure none will beat the writer of this.
