Whats on My Workdesk Wednesday 275? Hats!

Well I have been AWOL for a while on a Wednesday.  Life just gets too busy some times and that is what is so nice about this group.  You are not obliged to play along EVERY week.  Just when you can.  Phew. No pressure! Thanks Julia!

I have been busy with a series of hat samples to time myself for an upcoming project of HUGE proportions.  I am not scared of the scale of the project, but the pricing.  Hence the samples to see how long it takes me and how much materials will cost etc.  I am getting there, one hat at a time!

The white one is my current hat in progress, the "fancy" bits and trimmings still need to go on.  The black one balancing precariously on the angle poise lamp is mine and the others are for 3 gents.  If you have time later you can click here to take you to the post where I show step out pics of how I made the brown hat.

  2. I read the hat post when you posted it, and it was fascinating. Looks like you have quite a production line going!
    Most of my stamps are in the wooden boxes behind the paints and things in the second shot - there are loads of them!! I keep the paperartsy ones at the front as I use them all the time! Helen 6

  4. Wow! Bella. You are working SO hard on these - they are quite amazing. Trust the local coffee shop is going to pay you loads as you do their installation.
    Thanks for visiting, and for your lovely comments. It didn't look bad, did it?
    Take care. God bless.

  7. Amazing projects and the amount of detail you add is incredible. Pricing is always hard as people do not appreciate the amount of time and effort. Wonderful job.
