My New Hat

I can't thank Pat enough for my new hat. She presented it in a hatbox that had velvet cut outs on the sides and a big polka dot ribbon as a handle. I tried cutting out some black paper in a similar pattern as the pattern on the box to put on the front of her thank you card.
I didn't do the hat justice. I think she will appreciate my effort. I more than appreciate her efforts. She makes beautiful hats.  It has a herringbone pattern on flannel with a big black silk ribbon and feathers. The lining is a baby blue. So warm and it fits perfectly.
I love to wear hats. Do you like to wear hats?
If you had one like this I bet you would like to wear it.

LOVE that hat!! How wonderful to have something so unique! Great job on the sketch and thank you note as well.

I do like hats, alas, not much reason to wear them in Florida (other than for sun protection and that's just not the same).

Lisa, I know that you will look absolutely gorgeous in that hat. It is so you.

Sadly I look odd in hats.....I can just get away with those tiny beeny ones, that look like a satellite dish :)

My daughter looks lovely in is all to do with the shape of the face.....well that is what I think.

Julie said... is a beautiful hat! do you wear one all the time or just fancy occasions? very, very pretty...and i love how you designed the thankyou card! you are so thoughtful Lisa!

I certainly would wear this one! I don't usually wear hats except for the knitted kind. My head is very small and I can never find hats that fit, not even baseball hats (Tiny brain, I guess) I love the sketch you did. I think it looks just like the hat! You will look so smart wearing this!
