Before our girl was born, we diplomatically went to each relative and asked what moniker they would prefer.

One particular great-grandmother chose ‘Mimi’.

Bea stitched up this small piece for her yesterday.

Mimi has a love for all things flamboyant: enormous scarves, feathery brooches, ornate hats.

Bea choose one of those hats to embroider.

I personally love the spikey straw effect around the rim.

And should I (once again) have pressed this before taking the picture?  Well, yes.  But obviously, I don’t have that much self-control.  (And Doc woke up, so this was a rush job).

Hope your day has plenty of creative moments!
