COUNTRY SIDE LAZINESS TODAY

So, today is Griffin's Speld lesson day.... and I am going to sit in me car outside the house, in the country... and read a book!

Yes I am. I am not going shopping. I am not going to do anything but relax and read a book. How amazing.

When I get home I am going to sew... and I have decided to make smaller cot quilts out of my blocks, and a few wall pictures too... and maybe some cushions to match.. oooo... quite excited now. This way I will have at least 2-3 baby quilts to give to new babies in me family. Whenever that happens!
STEVE and MIKE: your turn to 'contribute' at some stage too! I want more grandbabies... I just love babies!

OH and the other thing I must do this afternoon is dye me hair. I bought two boxes of hair dye... cos I have a lot of hair.... that is exciting too! It's a Light Brown Permanent Dye.... hopefully it looks nice.

ONWARD... the day awaits. ABOVE: managed to dye the hair before I have to go out this morning. Light Brown. No red in it. Looks OK.. not too dark.

Thanks for saying the hair looks nice, it's not really 'me'... but as it keeps getting darker all by itself.. I suppose it is now! lol

I am not going to lighten it again... it just costs so much money to maintain... and I'd rather be spending money on fabric and card stuff... and the kids .... grandkids etc.

Got home from Griffin's lesson... had lunch... and have been working on the quilt (s) .... got to blanket stitch around every piece... such a long process, thank god my Husqvarna is sewing nicely again.

End of Day: I cooked some really nice meatballs tonight, with a chinese honey marinade on top... yum! Then I made a couple more animals and put them on a larger piece of fabric... it's going to be a duvet cover I think. I am loving sewing again... ummm... I've no doubt said that already eh? nite nite.

  1. Stink about the cards Chris (even though you were relieved) people just don't want to pay for quality these days.

    Can't wait to see the new, darker you..........have fun (I hate dying my hair, I never get it right).

  4. Pity about the cards. I'm sure you'll find another shop. And there's no sure thing as too much biz. I've been rejected many times by shops or shops asking for way too high commission. Your new hair is nice. Looks young.

  5. Really like that hair on you! It looks natural but still shiny and makes your eyes pop. Nice.

  6. Your hair looks very good, but I still tend to think of you with blond hair.
    Enjoy that reading time...I'm a little jealous.

    Your hair looks great! It's a nice natural-looking colour. tried putting a copper colour in my blond streaks once and it came out with a greenish tinge! Weird. WOMBAT.

  9. That's a great idea about making baby quilts from the blocks - they are all so cute! And your hair looks fabulous. I think that color is very nice on you!

    XOXO,

  13. Love the hair! Looks fabulous! I am trying to get the courage to do mine by myself... as my friend who often does it for me is a bit busy at the moment and Stephan is not that keen to assist me either!

  15. I really like your hair colour. It does make you look even younger. It will take a while to get used to but it will be so much easier (and cheaper) to maintain.

  20. Chris, your work is unreal. I love, love, love the kangaroo one. You are one very clever lady.

    I can imagine you being disappointed about the cards but at least now you can concentrate on the orders you have. And I agree with another commentator - you have to pay for quality.

  21. You have such beautiful blue eyes! The hair looks nice and brings out those eyes.

  22. I also love what you have done with your hair!! :)

  23. It seems that no matter what color your hair is, your blue eyes always look gorgeous!

  24. Hi Chris.

    Just catching up on blog reading after 12 days away in Oz. I kept thinking of you every time I went past a craft shop or scrapbooking shop - and there were a few of them that we passed!

    Your hair looks great with the light brown. If you like your hair a bit lighter, you could always just add a few foils in a lighter colour (which I've done recently). If you only have a few foils, they don't need to cost much either.

    Have a great weekend.
