How to Video: Making a Pillbox Hat (for Dr. Girlfriend, of course)

I am finally entering the new age of video- boy, you just wait until I get my new camera and tripod all set'll be sick of seeing me telling ya what to do!
Anyway, this is my 5-part series of making a pillbox hat by hand mostly using instructions from
www.vintage (site does not seem to be working at this time). Millinery supplies were purchased from Judith M, who is having a big sale in November! So enjoy the educating......
And don't forget to check out my youtube channel from time to time.

Wizard's 18th Annual Costume Contest

In case you haven't gotten this month's issue of Wizard, this is what you are missing:
Wizard says:
"Every year the call goes out for the best homemade Halloween outfits comic fans can muster. Here's this year's top entries."

Woot! Check out the teeny tiny picture of me as Queen Etherea (don't forget to check out the other entry of how I made it, more photos too). While it's difficult to compete with War Machine (winner- or any costume that is held together with more bolts than thread) it is nice to be included!
See you next year Wizard- I've got some big ideas in the works!!

Sheep & Wool Festival: Learning to Use a Drop Spindle

Geez- I can't believe it's October already!! Both hurray (I'm special) and boo-hoo (getting older) for my upcoming birthday.
Spent the first Saturday of this month at the Sheep & Wool Festival  about 90 minute drive.
