I played hooky from recording today and met my friend, Barbara, for lunch at a new Cuban restaurant, La Cubanita Cafe. It serves food cafeteria style.
Then I went shopping for hat supplies for Duane's Royal Wedding Viewing Party and Tea. After going to Michael's and Jo-Ann Fabrics, I think I have everything I'll need. I'll post a pic here when I've finished it. I thought I'd be able to buy the 'base' to make a fascinator hat like the one pictured on my blog in an earlier post. Unfortunately, neither place carried the piece that attaches (via hidden combs) to your head. HOWEVER, I stumbled across a substitute while trolling the aisles in Jo-Ann's. It's basically, well, a fake 'boob' or 'enhancer'. Someone had opened a package and I noticed they're shaped just like the fascinator bases I've seen.
I also bought some feathers of various sizes and colors along with strands of beads.
With items I already have in my 'craft' box, I hope I can come up with something wearable. I think I'm going to have to look at a LOT more pictures of these hats first.
After my little afternoon jaunt, which gave my voice a break, I need to get back to editing my Iambik files before continuing to record. Tomorrow is wide open...
