  1. Oh, I’m mesmerized by all of these blocks. I’d be like a kid in a candy shop with such an assortment.

    Love your blog.

  4. What a feast for the eyes & my imagination. I hope that you come to the east coast at some point (NYC). One of these years I will make it to hat camp but until that time, thanks for your e-mails, updates and the wonderful new hatblock resource. Many Millinery Blessings to you.
