Fabric and New Hair

It's fun hanging around home during the day and it is also fun skipping off to the fabric store with Kelli and the girls.

Kelli doesn't sew, so she isn't tempted at the fabric store. She brings a list and finds everything that is on the list. Done. Not me. I get distracted by shiny things. I could browse around the fabric store for hours, so we kept losing each other. We found the hearts. Ahhhhhhh. I am a sucker for Valentine merchandise. Doesn't Miss Bug look cute with her Valentine antennas? Birdie's head is bigger, so her head band stayed on.

Miss Bug, all belted in with Gran's purse tucked beside her, LOVED the fabric store, too! Yay!

My eyes kept gravitating toward the flannel. I have loved flannel all my life! Flannel bed sheets, flannel nightgowns, flannel shirts, flannel pajama bottoms, flannel quilts. What else could I use flannel for? Any ideas?

Don't you think Kelli is smart to collect nutcrackers? Miss Bug's real name is Clara! Cute, huh?

Pretty heart, but too expensive. I bought discount stickers and two bead garlands that remind me of my Camp Fire Girl award beads.

Okay, so don't laugh. Actually, laugh all you want because laughing is fun. I'm of the age where "stuff" is changing. I have a bit of insomnia sometimes, the cold weather makes me ache, my eyes need all kinds of lenses, all that, you know? So, my hair seems thinner. I needed a haircut to fix this problem because my hair seems all fly away and crazy looking. I found this picture and NO I had no notion of it looking exactly like this beautiful young woman's hair.

I think she's someone famous, but I wouldn't know since I spend all my viewing time reading your blogs. Anywho, my hairdresser liked this haircut, too and tried to get as close as he could. What do you think?

It'll have to do. I don't know why my hair is such a big deal to me and why I spend so much time trying to solve my hair problems. I guess I'm shallow (smile).
I'm procrastinating because I have to finish Kelli's curtains today. I don't like the type of fabric she picked out. I don't like cutting down the middle of a big hunk of fabric. I don't like trying to make homemade curtains look professional when I am NOT a pro curtain maker. Grrrrrrrr. I have papers to grade and THAT will take hours and hours and hours. Double GRRRRRRRRR.
I had ice cream for breakfast.

All things bright and beautiful... said...

Pom Pom you are just so lovely - I do like a girlie girl!!!!

Only you could discuss the merits of flannel and then own up to breakfasting on ice cream in Winter!!!!!!!!!

Love the hair cut - gosh you look so young (am so jealous - in a best friend kinda way!!!!!)

We don't have fabric shops like yours - how I'd love such a vast array to choose from!

Happy day and thanks for the happy post.

You look maaavelous, darling!! Seriously, your new 'do' looks fabulous!

Grrr. I still have a messy house to clean, and laundry to fold, and a flute to find. Nope, still haven't found it. Oh well, I'm sure it will turn up in the strangest place.

Ice cream for breakfast? I LOVE it! If we had any in the house I would go have a big bowl myself right now. Instead I think I'll drink a pomegranate pop while I fold laundry. I actually like doing laundry. Cleaning the house on the other hand...

I love the new look. And as to stores with material....I do believe those bolts call your name everytime you enter the store. They are waiting just for you or me. Hugs

I love the new hair style Pom Pom! I think the breezy style really suits you!

I understand your affinity for flannels. For me, it has always been calicos. There are such sweet and lovely patterns, that even though I never wear calicos and don't have anything to really make them, I still gravitate toward them. Every few years, I make a floppy little hat with a brim for a little toddler girl and get to indulge my penchant for calico in a wonderful, happy way!

Get some rest! Sounds like your work load is too heavy for a holiday! {{{{hugs}}}}

Your hair looks FABULOUS! I love it!!! Your hair is such a great color and you look beautiful.

I clicked on your blog and my now 13 year old daughter could hear "River Flows in You" and named it...while playing tennis on the Wii. I have no idea where she learns these things, but I am glad she has. :)

Are you at Joanns? I love that store and must go there ASAP!

What memories you bring back of my own teaching days, basking in the holiday interlude, but knowing that I must soon be ready to be back in front of my class. It is very hard to keep BOTH feet in a state of quiet! I love that Roy. J. Cook quote. I find as I grow older that I am turning to poetry more and more. Poetry and flannels, the perfect combination. Your hair cut is precious, by the way! xo Kari

Cute hair, cute kiddos, cute everything!
Just got some new flannel sheets on sale (steal!) @ Kohl's -- love flannel too -- soooo cozy! Maybe make one of those long jumper type school teacher dresses out of it, then you'd feel like you were in your nightie all day at school ;-).

Love your hair cut!
Have a happy new year!

Your hair looks great! It's such a beautiful colour too! If it's any consolation, I am 33 and I swear in the last 6 months or so my knees stopped bending in a comfortable fashion, and I groan a lot getting down onto the floor and back up again! It's really terrible! I think this year I must make an effort to get fit!

Marfa said...

I love looking at fabric. I bought some online from Japan recently...little matryoshka dolls! I am looking forward to using it. I want to learn to sew more. I'm not that good yet.
Your hair looks perfect!!!

Jessica said...

Hey There, Beautiful lady! ~smile~ LOVE THE HAIR! Especially how you let your color go au natural!

Your gran babies are precious! Clara-- What a sweet name!!!

P.s. Ice cream on top of cream of wheat is a really yummy breakfast too. Mmmmmmm!
