On the 1st Tuesday in November is the feature Horse race of the year the one to supposedly stop a nation. Melbourne Cup day is about hats and fashion. This year I fully crafted my hat in crochet and added a hair clip for my flower. The cotton was from my 1st package from Christine and the band is a crochet ball of el cheapo garbage. I didnt get a prize for the hat but did get a winner in the sweep and gained $55.
