I am now busy filling summer orders. Unlike sewing polar fleece in the middle of summer, making straw hats and delicate flowers in the dead of winter is really fun. It's the closest I will get to going south this year. I'm starting to get with the program and I am realizing that I need to start thinking of next fall's hats. Lamenting this fact to Tony one evening , he kindly offered his assistance. As you can see, designing is a family affair around here. What was once a mere table napkin has now been transformed into a thing of mystique and beauty. I am also posting photos of one of the beautiful hankies that I am working with and the flowers that they are being turned into. This is the most fun I've had in a while. Part of the reality of production is making the same thing over and over and over again. Now I get to make the same thing over and over, but each one is a surprise. It's always the little things that make me happy.
