This isn't quilt related so you might want to just skim on by. But then again it might be interesting!
I have hated my hair for some time now. Years!!!! So today I did something about it. I guess you could say it was drastic. You might save that word for in a couple of weeks when I think I might just go back and get it colored. Maybe a red would look great! lol
So I sat down in the chair and told the hairstylist that I wanted it all cut off. You could hear a pin drop in the salon. Everyone started staring waiting for my final decision (I was still somewhat on the fence). I knew I wanted it short but really didn't know what I wanted. Then another customer came in. I looked at her hair and said, "I want a cut like hers!". So that is what I got.
I had Leisa, the hairstylist, take a before photo before she started cutting. So here are some photos!
Are you ready to see the after? Are you sure? Well here it is! The picture isn't very good because my daughter took it with her cell phone. But you get the idea!
Now onto some quilty stuff!
I don't have any pictures of anything I have made to show you. What I am sharing is simply an observation!
I have never purchased any 30's reproduction fabrics. I haven't liked them so I found no need to keep any in my stash. But recently I have been seeing quite a few quilts using them and I have found that I really like them. So much so that the next time I go fabric shopping I am going to buy me some 30's reproduction fabrics. I even have a pattern in mind for these fabrics that haven't been purchased yet.
The Observation: Our tastes change so much in regards to fabric. I used to purchase Thimbleberries. I don't anymore. Then my taste started leaning towards the bright fabrics. I do still love them but I now find my taste drifting back to the 1930's and I can't wait to start adding them to my stash!
That is it for today. Except, I did hear from Sara and her Jelly Roll will be going in the mail in the next couple of days! Congratulations to all the winners in the Hoppin' Good Eggs giveaways!
