Today is a gloomy and rainy February day. It is hard to think that Spring will soon be here. As a designer I have to start thinking about warm weather designs despite the chill outside. I have one wintery design left, which I am currently in the process of typing up and will hopefully soon have ready for publishing. It is Etoile Hat, worked in concentric eyelet stars with an eyelet striped brim. These are just preliminary photos to make sure the hat would photograph well. If weather permits, I will hopefully be able to take photos in a pretty setting with a nicely styled outfit and a face full of makeup.
