New Year - New Beginnings

Dear Reader

Just a little about me.  I make  unique and artistic hats and headpieces  that are aimed at women who enjoy the confidence that a one-of-a-kind piece has to offer. An exacting  standard of production and finish is lavished on  all my pieces.  Love Hats provides   a service with  complete integrity.

I have been privileged to be able to attend workshops with some of Australia's best milliners - Neil Grigg and Waltraud Reiner.  I hope to be able to travel away in 2011 to gain further skills and inspiration for hat making.

My goal by undertaking this blog is to connect with other hat makers and  hat lovers .

I have been studying some old silk flower making books recently.  I haven't been able to attend any classes so have been learning to make various flowers by trial and error.  Here are the roses from a bridal headpiece I made recently.  I made the roses using the instructions from these and they were truly elegant - even if I do say so myself. 
Have a lovely day

  1. Very nice Lilian. Congratulations on your new blog.

  2. Wonderful, I'm very much enjoying your blog!
    I have to ask, to find the books, what titles/subjects do you look under at your local library? I'd love to learn more!
