Something Special for a Special Friend

I'd like to show-off one of my projects.

A year ago a friend of mine did a huge favor for me.  I wanted to give her a special 'Thank You' and this was the result.  I made her a beaded hatband.  I was very pleased with the results.

My friend judges and competes in Herding Competitions with her Pembroke Welsh Corgi's.  She has and herds ducks, sheep, cattle and geese. 
Along this side are a grey Pilgrim Goose, black headed Dorper Sheep, a red and white steer and, of course, a Red and White PWCorgi.

On this side is another Corgi, a black and white steer, a Black Bellied Barb Sheep and a white Pilgrim Goose. 


The front of the hatband features the name of her famous herding Corgi, Dual Champion (DC) Beau.  He's truly, one of a kind.  My friend is pretty special, too.
