My favourite Sale




Not to say that all my hat sales are not my favourite, but every once in a while there is the perfect union between hat and head that feels like divine intervention. Today was the Hubbard's Christmas Market and this lovely tall and stylish lady came up to me and said how she really wanted to wear hats, but somehow didn't. I had just made one of my wet feted merino hats this week. They are so time consuming that I rarely repeat one. Somehow by the time I get around to making another one I just need to try something new. This one was inspired by my friend Svenja's fabulous flower arrangements. Svenja is always combining purple, orange and green. It's so fun and it's something that never would have occured to me without staring at her beautiful flowers at all the market. You don't get to stare long because she is usually sold out before I can finish setting up my hats. Anyways, this hat was called garden dreams and along comes Lin. I new this was her hat and now I just needed to convince her of this. Honestly, it took about an hour, but it was worth it. I felt like I would cry if she left without the hat. She actually did leave, but came back. That was really fun. I've been so crazy busy, but hopefully I will have some time this week to do a little more felting for my last show of the season at the Halifax Seaport Market. Happy Hatting, Anna

Isn't it great when one of your creations finds the perfect home? That hat is really wonderful. I love the color combo; I used to mix and match our dinnerware displays in those colors and people would always say, "Oh, I never thought of this combo but I really like it - can I buy these?" Those were the days...

I just found you and I am amazed with the hats, you are very talented and I'm going to come back here more often to enjoy your creations.
