The Hittys at Rose Cottage held their AGM for the Yellow Hat Society today, a day early as they were uncertain as to whether or not it would be possible to do so on Sunday.
They had rather a long agenda to get through, but the first item on the list was decided unanimously that Hitty Robertson should be this years Honorary Member.
Hitty Ethel didn't have time to make them all beautiful hats like the chairperson Hitty Patience, so this year they were all given yellow felt crown hats...which of course made them feel very important indeed.
Hitty Patience had to keep Hitty Carol Faith focussed as she tended to drift off in a daydream.
Hitty Ethel, said she hopes to make them some 'proper' hats and all the same outfits throughout the year especially for the YHS events and meetings. They had trouble deciding which colour though and in the end it was agreed that the dresses would be made with whichever fabric they had the most of!
They decided that they would like to do some PIFs this year as a thank you to all who have made them feel welcome. Other agenda items were extending their wardrobe...who would have guessed that one?! They are also hoping that they may have some improvements made to their home...beds were one of the items suggested.
After much discussion it was decided that:
They would like to make at least one item per month...
Make some PIF gifts
Finish their round rug.
Make matching dresses & yellow hats for events and meetings.
They also discussed possible future activities, but know their person isn't ready to commit to too much straight away until she finds her motivation which seems to have taken a wander.
Of course the meeting was finished off with copious cups of tea, savouries and cakes.
