Not much stitching happening here lately. I've been started on 3 new medications in the past month and the side effects are dragging me down...but have still managed to do a little.
First up...long hair. I have found with hair this long, I can't get away with a shampoo, cut and style for less than $60 anymore. That just isn't in the budget, so I started watching videos online of how to cut your own hair. I was ready for some layers and a shorter length, which is what happens when you comb it all forward, put it in hair ties, and cut.
I tried to do it by myself, but when I sat down and combed it all forward, it was nearly to the floor. My arms weren't long enough LOL so I decided to wait until dear De could help me, and she was happy to.
It took awhile to comb it all forward, then it had to be wet down.
I placed a hair tie at the hairline and a second one that could be slid down to the cutting point.
Here is the after picture. De cut off 17 inches. Wow. Now that I am feeling a bit more brave, I think another cut will be happening soon. I am loving the layers in the front. Thank you , De!
Boy 6 was with me for two weeks. He was lovely to have around while his puppy raising family was away on holidays.
Like the others, he loved to carry the teddy bear around and bring it to me.
On weekdays, he was collected by his trainer to go to work all day. Here he has spotted the van and he is watching her come to the door to collect him.
Boy7 will be coming on Friday and will be staying with me for 3 weekends. I think I have seen him from a distance (waiting in the van) and I am pretty sure he is a Golden. Will find out soon!
These are my blocks for one colourway for A4A quiltalong, Block 3. They just need sashing.
These are Block 3 Batik version, still need to be sewn in SQST (split quarter square triangles).
I cut out a bag, lining, and pockets from my favourite pattern. No sewing yet though.
I traced 6 stitcheries (all by Michelle Ridgway). The first is an "M" for an upcoming swap.
They are SO sweet, just love them. Hope to feel well enough to start stitching them soon.
