do’s and tea towels

February 21, 2009 at 3:32 pm 2 comments

As I said, being that my knitting, sewing, and serger and I are not on speaking terms right now (absence make the heart grow fonder right!?) I’ve been on a major embroidery kick right now.  Like all things, eventually I’ll come back around to knitting and sewing, but I don’t see it happening any time soon.  So you’ll just have to deal with some embroidery post for a little bit.

Animal design embroidery patterns by Clover with sampler stitch birds (huh!). The pattern said to use a simple backstitch for the whole thing, but I never do follow directions well, so each bird has a different stitch.

The tea towel on the left is my next victim.  Not sure which pattern I’m going to use yet, just know she’s next.

And on a side note, my hair has been driving me absolutely batty!  I have fine, thick (I’m talking super thick hair, break hairbands thick), wavy mess that I call hair.  After threatening to shave my head and start over, my hair still didn’t behave, so this whole week I’ve been searching (and searching and searching) for a cute do I liked.  With absolutely no luck in searching, I went today to the salon and found just the do I’ve been looking for.

Bonus, the cut goes really well with my wavy hair!!!!  It’s sorda an angled cut that is very layered and thinned out.  There was enough hair on the floor to make 2 heads of hair, and she still said my hair was really thick.  Eh!  She did an awesome job and I absolutely loooooove love love it!

    Your hair looks great! Nothing like a new ‘do to help with the winter blahs. I dyed and trimmed my hair myself yesterday. It even made me put on a little makeup!

    You are beautiful! I love your new do, very complimentary to the shape of your face. I’m getting quite aggravated with mine right now. It’s all falling out.. I haven’t had a cut or color in a while.

    I’m loving your embroidery … it’s so pretty. The birds and trees are perfect for my house. I’ve never done any embroidery, but I might try it.. you are inspiring me…
