Hitty Patience is delighted that the Hittys at Rose Cottage have been admitted into the Yellow Hat Society.
The first hat arrived today and Hitty Patience being the first Hitty to arrive at Rose Cottage has been nominated as the one to wear it. She gets the meeting room ready to explain all about the Yellow Hat Society to the other Hitty Girls.
Later on when the all arrive she explains what is involved and also explains that they will all need to make a yellow hat to wear when attending the meetings.
"Can't I wear my little Blue Hat with the pretty red flower, that I am wearing now?" Hitty Joy asks.
"I'm afraid not Hitty Joy. The only condition of being a membership is that Hittys should be wearing yellow hats at meetings and other gatherings, be they private or public when representing the society" Hitty Patience explains.
"Now how many hats do we need?" Hitty Patience asks. "Would you all like to make your own, or does someone want to volunteer to make them all?
"We need five hats". Granny Hitty Estelle replies. "However, I do think we should make a couple of extra hats as I have heard that Hitty Ethel's cousin is coming to stay and I understand that our person might be making another one to join our family."
"I would be happy to make them" Hitty Ethel tells the others. "I do tend to do most of the sewing and knitting around here, so would be happy to make them"
"That would be lovely of you Hitty Ethel" Hitty Patience thanks her. "But please if you need a hand, don't forget to ask the others".
The wander off discussing the types of hats they should make...
