My New Felt Hat!

For the past 5 happy years, my trusty brown felt hat has been nothing but good to me.

But this week, I created and fell in love with a new one.

I didn’t mean for it to happen. I wasn’t even looking for a new hat…

In fact, I was embroidering hats to replace some that had sold at the artists’ gallery, “Collective” in Woodstock, Vermont.

But once I had finished it, I knew I couldn’t let it go.

So, heads up!  If you mainly recognize me by my old brown hat, look sharp:

There’s a new hat in town!
