My scrumptious friends were due to get married but because of my travels and adventures in the flatlands I was going to miss out sharing their special day. So in a wild mixture of stroppy sulkiness that I couldn't go and a flourish of rummaging further, I concocted a beaut of a plan!
Hand crafted from pieces of fabric, netting, felt, and many many beads and sparkles and love; my gift to the bride. A one off, just like the lady herself, bespoke some may say, tailor made for the big day with tiny (something blue) beads dotted throughout.
Although I'm on an important voyage right now, testing the waters for future plans, I can't help but feel bummed that I missed the wedding. However, that is what makes this treasure so special, and has also set a wheel in motion for making more of these fascinators, again each individual and hand made.
So out come the tools and wonders, once buried away- and perhaps a trip or two to the Hellevoet market for some shiny new bits (any excuse)!!
