My new hobby...

... is apparently making Derby hats!

A hat for Mom

It's fun to take a break from doll-making, although I love that process, to make other things. This week in my hometown of Louisville, Kentucky we are celebrating with the Derby Festival. It technically began with Thunder Over Louisville two Saturdays ago, but this week is when things really get going.

I am most looking forward to watching the Pegasus Parade with my nephew on Thursday and of course, the running of the 137th Kentucky Derby on Saturday!

For my Aunt's Derby party, I decided my Mom and I should have some awesome hats! I haven't finished mine yet, but thought I would go ahead and share my Mom's. Would you believe the pink hat was $2.50 from Target in the beach section? A few spiffy accessories, and now it's really something!
