It's been a long time since I've worked on any straw hats. Well, maybe 20 years! I put 2 new straw hats in my Etsy store the other day, and I think I rather like them. They have a nice spring feeling and are fun. We have been deluged with snow this year here in Vermont, which is good since we like to ski, but it is always nice to dream of a little spring. You'll have to let me know what you think.
