Do you know what's going on? Because I'm having problems. - Kurt Vonnegut Jr

I'm fairly pleased with the trimming of silk and organza that I added to the wedding hat yesterday.

The first picture is better for colour. I kept the navy blue ribbon and removed the bow then added flowers in white and pale blue organza with pale blue silk flowers (to match the dress), with pearl beads on the stamens. The leaves are a darker blue to bring together the colour of the hat and flowers. The brim is a little deformed but an inexpensive charity shop hat with added trimming is looking good enough for a wedding.

Neat! And I have to say, I love that you're recycling in ways that most of us forget are possible

Thank you. I hate nice things going to waste. Someone had obviously bought the hat for a special occasion, worn it once and given it to the charity. I really didn't want to spend a lot of money on a similar purchase which I'll probably not use again.

Though I might keep it as a reminder of the day.
