My son was up at 5 am today. His high school has a "senior sunrise" day at the beginning of each school year for the senior class. They have juice and coffee and muffins and gather to take a class picture as the sun comes up. I think it's a great tradition, and the picture goes in their yearbook. Since I was up early too, I took a few pictures of my own, before the sprinklers came on in the side yard.
here made by Debbie out of the cute new Marmalade fabric, then followed her link to Made by Rae, for the free pattern. Isn't that nice of her to share?
I added another row to make it bigger ( you will need to cut 40 more colored squares) and now it measures about 56x56 in. I used Lilly Belle fabric by Bari J. and some Joann's fabric for the backing.
I also just finished another shawl. I used the Sweet November pattern again (I first blogged about it here), but this time I added the Dory shawl edging instead of the fringe.
Kris at Simplify, has a post about growing out your hair, and now I'm in a quandary about a new hairstyle. I've been letting my hair grow out for months now, and can finally get it in a (smallish) ponytail, but I really love short hair! This hot weather is not helping my case, because it causes my hair to lay flat as a mattress, no matter how much product I put in it. I'm starting to dread taking a shower, because then I have to wash and style this mop! So I created a new Pinterest board for short hairstyles.
Now if only my stylist would guarantee she could make me look like Halle Berry or Sharon Stone, I might have a go at it.
I know women love to talk about their hair. Are we ever happy with it?
Have at it in the comments : )
