This is... SHOW OFF time!

I'm ALWAYS showing off... my work, my child's artwork, my sewing gadgets.... This week I thought I'd do a bit of showing off for Leah.

Some of you may already know Leah as the sales and admin whizz in the office at my studio. But did you know she's an experienced and addicted sewing gal? She really knows her sewing stuff - and she's also a brilliant admin and sales whizz.

Leah also tests and proof-reads pattern instructions for me, and this is the hat she made from my hat pattern. It's supposed to be a "fishing hat" but I think it's definitely a bit too stylish for fishing.

Thanks to Sharon for guest-hosting This Is while Angela was away. Welcome back Angela. Thanks Katie for this week's theme.

Thanks Leah for being an all-round whizz at Nicole Mallalieu Design!

I've been looking forward to seeing Leah's very fancy fishing hat. The buckle is a nice touch!

She's a clever one for sure. Are you going to be having hat making classes now that you have the patterns? I definitely want to make one but think I might need moral support to get started.

One can never be too stylish while fishing!

Cool hat! I love the fabric choices - I'd definitely wear that if I was going fishing!

I think if one were to add a few cork bobbles, a couple of flies and some fish scales, it would definitely be suitable for fishing. As it is i think Leah will look very smart at afternoon tea at the Windsor, I'll look out for her there ;)
