The hat looks great on her. I make hats similar to that regularly. I have a big bag, well, really three bags of things I have crocheted over the past couple of years. I need to try to sell them or give them away I guess. Mum's hat looks like it is very well made.

Yes, it does look well-made, I agree. I reckon you should get those bags on ebay. I don't know if you've ever used it but it's a good outlet for getting rid of stuff you don't want.

I don't have a camera. Ebay is a good idea but it would take some money to set up a seller's account wouldn't it? I'm real dumb about stuff like that.

From what I can gather it is free to join Ebay. The only money involved is how much you want to sell an item for..the fees come after something is sold and for something to be listed. Sometimes, Ebay offer free listings (usually at weekends) so that's maybe something to consider. It's a pity you don't have a camera though.

Well not everyone can wear hats, I think she does wear hats well. I think she adds life to that hat. I know I cannot wear many kinds of hats al all. Maybe a baseball cap. But it looks like your mother can wear many different kinds of hats.

Put it this way, she didn't wear a hat on my wedding day! She's small, slight but her head is way too big for most hats. They don't "sit" very well at all and we've had hours of fun trying hats on in shops, just so we can have a laugh at each other..all very light-hearted, nothing nasty! As hats go though, the one in the pic looks rather good doesn't it?

Hey Janey, like i commented there- it sort of gives her a bit of a happy, hippy look, which makes her look more delightful. I like seeing older people still enjoying life, and trying new things, a 10+ from me.

Awww, thanks very much! She's got way more energy than me and she's 20 years older!

In that hat,your Mum doesn't look her age,at least 5 years younger.And again,the dark blue hat doesn't show the dirt.

I've got one in a similar shape that I was wearing in the garden the other day when I couldn't find my cap, but it's nothing to your Mum's one. I like the colours, and she looks great,

Mum told me it does blow off her head in strong winds but it's certainly different!

I love it! You are such a sweetie to remember to share it with us. Tell mum, she is a very lovely and pretty woman. Tell her I love the hat! She has a great smile too. I am a hat wearer so I know she will enjoy her hat. Thanks so much for sharing this with all of us.

I don't know why she was worrying either. It's a great hat and, er, certainly DIFFERENT!

hi Janey I love it, and think its cute on your mom, colorful and well she gives it a flair. I see nothing wrong with it at all. she has a flair and gives it some pizzaz. nothing wrong with that. She is cute in the hat, tell her to quit worrying she is fine. well thats my opinion anyway so there.

She's sitting next to me and I said to her that she's no excuses NOT to have a go on the internet. I may even let her loose on MyLot. We shall see! Thanks for your lovely comments about the hat. Mum appreciates them.

I am going to have to get out of this mode so that I can see that hat. I had to go look up a trilby after your last discussion because I had no clue about it. I know you promised "colorful" so I know it is right up my alley
