There is where the cat comes into the picture.
|Delilah trying to look angelic and innocent|
I was so focused on this hat and all the details that I forgot completely about my Box O'Feathers (I am in the process of moving the lab into a our new digs, among other familial distractions). Well- Delilah found herself in cat feather heaven... which resulted in, you guessed it. Cat barf central in every color of feather I own. Burgundy, blue, green, orange, yellow, purple, pink and white or at least what used to be white....
Thankfully and gratefully I had the good sense to place the all important "Cass" Hat up and out of the way of our diligent Delilah who at post time has yet to figure out the nuances of furniture tetris to reach atop the sewing cabinet. (Give her time and she will figure this out).
So here is the finished project, 1 month in the making and 100's ruined feathers later due to somebodies strange culinary obsession.

What did I learn? Keep all feathers in large gallon size ziplock bags AND a large plastic bin WITH A LID! ~ Dr Brassy
