I just thought I would share my new hair cut with all of you. I HATE pictures of myself but here you go. I like it better this morning now that I can style it myself. I want to grow it out to one length so the "bangs" are still growing.
I really like the back too. I asked my stylist, Melissa, to help me out with my HUGE amount of gray hair that is growing in too. I want to let it come in but I really wanted it to blend with the rest of my hair. So she gave me a few ashy colored highlights and everyone at work today just thought the gray was the highlights too!! SUPER!! Thanks, Melissa.
I am so happy with how it turned out. I just had to share.
No quilty news today. I was such a slug last night. I did receive a phone call from a woman that works in the religious ed office at the church asking for a quilt to donate to Relay for Life. She wanted the word HOPE somehow incorporated into it. *Of course she did* right? Cuz that's no extra work or anything. So about 6 months ago or so a man came to the church quilt group to donate a ton of fabric and tools from his mother that had passed away. I have been slowly going through the bags and having some of the CL's put the quilts together that have blocks made. I just got one back from LTW that was a chrun dash and it came out quite well, so I thought of that one immediately. BUT...no "HOPE" on that quilt. So...I came in to work today and spoke with my friend, Robin, who is a graphic artist and she made me the letters so I can copy them. I will use sewable fusible interfacing and sew it to the fabric, cut and turn the letters. This will allow me to hand applique the letters to the upper left top of the quilt in the border. I even managed to find the same pink fabric that is in the churn dash to use for the letters!
Now, speaking of Jack, (the man who brought us all his mom's "stuff")...One of the CL's suggested that we take some pictures of the quilts we have finished and make a little photo album for Jack. I think that is a wonderful idea. So next week I plan to photograph what we already have finished and start with those. As we finish more I can add them. That way if we give some away, I will already have pictures. neat, huh?
