Doning a Stunning Hat to Join a link party

Do you hunt for tutorials? I do, especially look for cool projects to interest NowSeven (soon to be 8) found some very cool projects from Sachiko at Tea Rose Home Blog
..... and became a blog follower there. Which has now introduced me to "link Parties" -- so oh YES! sounds like fun, I want to play.

One grabs this button to share in a post.

and in the post, shares a project.

Well this week, have no in-progress photos, but will remedy that by next week's project.

On to the project to Share this week.

April and May brought sunshine and warmth and Kentucky Derby on May 1. Generating several commissions for Over the top Race Day Hats. Oh those were fun to make.

Race day and related local fetes have come and gone. Still, am in a feathery frivolous glamorous mode - but working a little smaller going fascinator style. Playing with feathers, velvet, ribbon, tulle and a headband and viola this happened

All sewn onto the headband, sometimes I do resort to glue, but not for this girly girl band.

Thanks Sachiko for the open party invite. A version of this headband maybe using glue would be really cool to pair with this tutu by Sachiko and be a fabulous project for IsSeven. Visions of twirling, swirling and dancing about are playing in my mind even now.

Enjoy! and Party Hearty!
