Yea! The hatband is done! It's attached to the hat and everything!
This isn't exactly how I envisioned it on the hat. The white band was to be smaller, not as wide. But when the material was cut and shaped to fit the hat a narrower band was just not going to work, so wide it is. In excitement to get it done (and lack of practice and knowledge) the band has slightly uneven edges. And the tatting would not win any awards. Looking at the finished piece there are quite a few places that don't really look all that great. I'm still excited about it and I'm going to wear it anyway!!! For at 50 paces no-one will notice it's not great! LOL! Hopefully there will be no losing the hat where someone might pick it up, so no-one should see it very closely but me!
My tea today was plain ol' green tea. It was not actually consumed while the tatting was being done though. Tatting time was mostly in the wee hours of the morning and drinking too much of anything before bed is not wise. There was this idea playing around in my head that I just had to see if it would work, so bed was a little later than it should have been! Then there were a few minutes here and there during the day while waiting in the doctor's office and tea was not available. But the little idea is looking pretty good! I'll share it in another post.
Until then, may you all have a blessed week with a little time for tatting and tea.
