I'm quilting a very large, difficult customer quilt right now that I must take a little at a time. Most quilts start talking to me as I'm putting them on the machine, telling me how they want to be quilted. This one isn't doing that, so it's somewhat of a struggle. I'm plugging on little by little, with faith that it will start talking to me pretty soon.
In the meantime I'm visiting a little with the kids and Joseph almost every day. It's so hard to stay away from that precious little boy. What a sweet, happy child he is!
Thursday was my regular monthly appointment to get my hair cut and colored. I hate my hair - it's so limp, straight and baby fine. There aren't many choices as to what I can do with it. Seems like I've worn it more or less the same way for years and years. I arrived at the appointment a little early. Kelly, whose done my hair for years and years, was finishing the women whose appointment was just before mine. She was more or less my age, and wore her hair the way so many older women wear it these days - short and spiked. It really looked good on her - that hair style looks good on so many older women. I happened to hear Kelly say, "this is a perfect style for your fine straight hair." When I got in the chair I asked her whether or not that style would work for me. "Absolutely!" was her reply. I asked her whether it would look good on me - she assured me it would. So I made an immediate, spur-of-the-moment decision. "Do it!" I told her.
Well, this is very different than I've ever worn my hair before. It didn't look like me at all when she was done. I like it! And it's so easy to do. I have no talent when it comes to hair, but this I can do. My husband likes it. My daughter doesn't like it at all. She thought I forgot to comb it before I came over LOL! My son will probably hate it too. Chelsea , if you are reading this you might warn him LOL!
I have managed to clean up my sewing room and spend a little bit of time on a project or two of my own. I'll have pictures of them soon - right now I'm still learning about my new camera. I don't want to connect it to the computer again until I figure out how to delete the pictures that have already been downloaded. I certainly don't need to download the pictures I've already taken for the third time LOL!
