I know, I know, I already did a hand shot as a self portrait this week. Forgive me, I'm on limited mental resources. Getting a little ahead of myself, project-wise: this is the top finial on the Totoro hat, a little brown micro-corduroy branch with a hand-sewn leaf and a store-bought silk flower. I disassembled the flower, removing it from it's plastic stem, and sewed it in place with a single clear crystal bead. The branch is stuffed with fiberfill and sewn straight onto the base hat (a $1.99 green knit hat from the boy's section at Target). Now that the finial is on, I can begin covering the exterior of the hat with quilted leaves. As usual, this project has turned from a cute idea into a major project, but I love it.

So this was taken with a really cheap Canon point-and-shoot in macro mode. I couldn't believe how nice it turned out. Really great detail on this Persian Silk flower.
