Berets—and the occasional hat

I call this beret Artemis in the garden: Artemis is the Greek moon goddess, and a huntress!

Berets offer the most wonderful framework for embellishment;  The top is a clearly defined shape, a lovely circle that cries out for the addition of buttons, felt applique and so on..  A beret on the head is another matter entirely, and just how an embellishment scheme works depends entirely on the wearer. This page will offer images of berets that I have worked on—or up—or whatever–so do keep an eye on it.

    I like this web blog so much, saved to my bookmarks.

  2. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

      I think about it a lot, as I find inserting photos quite frustrating. At the same time, I’m a words person, so … Thanks for the comment, and the encouragement to try some different things.
