My friend Angela called into the studio this week for tea and scones. She moved to Melbourne, Australia earlier this year and I have missed her so much. Angela and I did our first blocking course together and caught the bug for hat making. Before she left, she gave me this pin pusher and tiny hammer which I have treasured ever since.
Angela recently made the pilgrimage to Millinery Mecca, Torb & Reiner and brought me a goody bag. I have some beautiful vintage velvet ribbon and amazing vintage petersham which I can’t wait to use. She has also given me some beautiful purple thermo felt which I haven’t used before. I’ll have to check out some Youtube tutorials to see how to use it.
Thanks to all my very supportive friends who encourage me to keep making!
