hats & more hats
Today I replaced the lining in my muff in the afternoon. Then fortified with the pink champagne we had with dinner to celebrate Bridget's birthday and Dad's triathlon (he did an AquaBike this morning crazy man!), I finished sewing foxes and things on my hat so my outfit is now completely done, except for hooks & eyes on the jacket which Bridget is going to do while I work on her outfit. Ummm, I think that sentence is too long... :>

In Bridget's corner her hat is now finished too. Yay us! I can say "us" because I helped with the covering plus the usual, "no that isn't right" "yes that is it!" comments. I adore how both hats came out although they are completely different. Mine is the result of watching Jefferson in Paris too often I think while Bridget's is very Marie Antoinette. Perhaps I'm so tickled with them because they are different, life is always more interesting with variety. Re-enacting events in particular IMHO. :>

Yes, yes I do have pics, which I will post tomorrow. Now I'm off to bed...
