Hats Off...

Live your life, do your work, then take your hat. ~Henry David Thoreau
One thing they never tell you about child raising is that for the rest of your life, at the drop of a hat, you are expected to know your child's name and how old he or she is. ~Erma Bombeck
You start out giving your hat, then you give your coat, then your shirt, then your skin and finally your soul. ~Charles de Gaulle
If a woman rebels against high-heeled shoes, she should take care to do it in a very smart hat. ~George Bernard Shaw
My eldest knitted this hat for one of her friends, then embellished it with rosettes made out of felt and buttons. It looked really cute.  Check out her other creations here.

"C" is for...

My daughter custom-made something for a friend name whose name begins with the letter "C" who happens to love to play the guitar.  We emulated the "C" chord on a t-shirt.
Materials: lace, buttons, beads
This is how I play my "C" chord with 3 & 4 "fingers" (But mistakenly reversed here. Oh well.)  
"C" is for creative, cute, chatty, competent Christine.
