I'm very proud that the bird on the hat can flap his wing! Although he may be a little too big for the tree he's in...

That is so sweet and beautiful! I love it! You should wear it while having a tea party in a sunny garden.

I've never thought about buying anything on this site until now.  I'm totally in love, and I'm pushing the "This Rocks" button before I faint in pure joy.

I agree with all of the above -- that hat is soooo bee-yoo-tee-full!  I love it!  Are you thinking of making more and selling them?  How much would one have to offer to get you to think of selling them?  Great job!

So happy you liked the hat!!  Yeah I sold it on my site http://piebirdjosie.squarespace.com/shop/ (soon to be piebirdjosie.com).  I'll try to make more after I finish these next orders. I'm thinking of doing some little bird purses for spring as well.     
thanks for your comments!   Cheesy

Is there any way you could post a pattern on how to do the birdy and tree? And what size hook and yarn did you use?

That is so cute! Did you design it yourself? Have you thought of selling the pattern or of having it published?
It looks like something from the 30's and yet so original.
Thanks for sharing this.
My fingers have that happy crochet itch, now.

This is absolutely perfect! I want one!  (Are you considering posting a tutorial?)

Also, a question.  I saw the hats you posted on your website, and they are all beautiful.  What is your inspiration?

oh! tree branch scarf thats a good idea!

I rarely have an idea when I set out to make something. It just takes shape depending on the nature of the yarn and what is lurking in my subconscious. Perhaps this is why I love crocheting so much.  Its like dreaming! The repetitiveness of the action kind of lulls you off like that. I've been known to substitute sleep with crocheting some nights.  Not a clever thing to do though!

I also do a lot of special orders with folks that leave the "theme" kind of open-ended.  For example, I am working on a bug hat that may include walking sticks etc...I love special orders because they take me out of my comfort zone.

eeep, such lovely hats!  I've just sent 10 minutes staring at your sight contemplating whether or not to buy something, which wouldn't be good for my wallet.  I love the ice berry hat particularly.  But this hat is just so cute! with the little duckie! how could you resist little duckies that flap?
