Anyone born and reared in south Florida understands the importance of hats. My mother never allowed me out of the house without a hat, and the habit of wearing one is so firmly instilled into my subconscious I continue to always wear my hat even at 71. As a little girl they were the straw ones with the round bill and a bow in the back, and that style continues to be my favorite. I love baseball caps, too, and wear them much of the time, but if I am dressed in my “go to work” clothes, I wear one of my straw hats. For this square, I put the bow on the side because if I had put in in the back it would have been nonexistent. Also, I do wear glasses, I do have blue eyes, and I do have gray hair, but my eyes do NOT bulge as they appear in this square. You talk about “primitive” art, well, my embroidery is pretty darn primitive :-). I chose the quote below because all of my days are special. I just didn’t know it was because I always wear my hat!
“Whenever you wear your hat, your day will be special.”
