Sew sew sew....

Another day of sewing and finally I'm getting somewhere!  I think one more day of it and I'll have finished the main item for 5 sets to sell....and then I just need to think what I want to make to go with each item.  So I'm thinking after tomorrow, probably a few more days doing those, then I'll be done!  I do ask myself why I choose the most detailed things to sew though!!!

Yesterday I had my hair permed!  I wanted to do something with it because it was such a mess, so straight and in this very hot weather, so very lank.  So my hairdresser agreed, against her better judgement I think, to give me a perm.  Well it is a lot more curly than I expected and unfortunately because of my last experience with a perm (it all went straight the following day) Loli, my hairdresser, told me not to wash or style it for two days, just to give it time to 'settle' in.  I've not left the house since getting back, I'm too scary looking!!!!  I don't want to frighten the neighbours, after all a lot of them are elderly!!!! :)  But thankfully tomorrow I will be able to do something with it, and hopefully back to my old self again!!!

  1. Sharon, a perm??!! I DEMAND photos please! I loved having a perm back in the 80's but my hair curls madly so I have some very scary pictures of me LOL! I think I'm too used to having straight hair now to have another perm although a light one to give it body could tempt me, but I'm sure I'd end up looking like your pic above if I did!!

    1. LOL, you're more likely to win a trip to the moon than see a photo of me with curls!!! I value my camera too much!!!!
      But I have to say, now that it's settled in, it's not too bad at all, and very quick to sort out in the mornings!

  2. LOL I love your description of the perm experience! I have never had one, but I think I've heard they relax after a couple days, so hopefully you will be happy with the end result. :)
