This weekend, I wired  all of the dingle-dangles into the sombrero using the telephone wire I had picked up at a neighborhood yard sale.   I  liked the idea of photographing the hubcap in the hat format, so I had my friend Kathy, the owner of the Bija Yoga Studio stop by and model in front of one of the many bamboo trees that grows in my backyard in my home in Naples.  Today, I took the hat up to the studios at WGCU Public Media in Ft. Myers for a critique from my co-workers.  The reviews were all positive, and they were intrigued by my idea, agreeing that it really was a unique hat.  My  project is ready for shipping!
