New ‘do

I decided I needed a change.

So I went to the beauty salon.

I sat through having a lot of rollers put in my hair, it felt like a hundred but I didn’t count.  🙂 Thankfully I took a good book to read while I waited for everything to set and come together.  An hour and thirty minutes later I was ready to go.

It has been around 18 years since I last had a perm in my hair.  I like the change.

What do you think?

Then later today I pulled out some of the “UFOs” I have and decided what to do with them.

Several years ago I won the block of the month at a quilt guild meeting.  Over the years I have got them out and played with them, putting some together with borders, thinking I would use them for wall hangings, pillows, table runners, or what ever.  

After laying them out today, I decided to take the borders off all the blocks and use a dark border like black or dark navy to put them all together. I will then use the strips from the borders taken off to make a small quilt.

Here they are laid out on the bed. There are more blocks to the side that are not in this picture.  It’s times like this that I wish I had a big design wall.

Good news!  I did in fact get the lime quilt done.  You can see it on the quilt tab.

Until next time,

Hugs,
Sonia

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
