I have been in the studio working with winter materials that I have in the shop. I realized that one needs to spend hours at a time in the studio to really make progress. Rather than hour to two spurts. So now that biking season is over, snow has hit for good, I am thoroughly enjoying the extra time to work. I do not plan on buying new felt or chenille unless really need to, hoping to be creative with what is on hand. And it is quite a lot! Just not as likely to be able to do all custom orders as I do with the straw braid. But keep checking as I add hats every week.
