DAY FIVE...... of me GIVEAWAY!

oooo LOOK AT THAT! More cute - as Fat Quarters! The one on the right is supposed to look like Paua Shell... it's a really lovely KIWI design. Come on now... ENTER! ...Leave a bloody comment (or ten)... you so want to win all this stuff!

It's Monday, kids are still home for another week.. still coughing and sniffing... snot everywhere! NICE.

Stew is back at work.. lucky bugger.

I am hoping to get some sewing done today, I want to finish a couple of projects....

It's really cold today... so when I got outta bed is was really LOVELY to find Stew had put on the HeatPump before he left for work! Awwwww... ain't he nice!

ABOVE: NO, it's NOT part of my giveaway! It's the gorgeous BLUE knife Sandra gave me as a 'Thank You' for having her to stay! I sooooo did not expect a gift... but THANKS Sandra! It's an awesome knife... the colour is devine! I needed a good knife too!

No flowers for this chick, just give me a knife! Ha ha ha!

GUESS what I'm doing right now?....


I is going BROWN..... well.. the hair is anyway!

Yikes, gotta go rinse it out now...




DONE! And I only had to take about 100 photos to get one I kinda liked! Pfffffft.. why is it so bloody hard to take a decent photo of one's self? It isn't as dark as I thought it would be either. Next time I will go a shade darker.


AND yes, I'm happy with it. I have to stop pissing around and just stick to going dark! I hate the re-growth when I lighten it.. I'm so over it! So from now on.. it's dark. (Until I change my mind that is... I AM A GIRL AFTERALL!) ha ha ha

End of Day: in all a good day.. got a few things done... got new hair... and a headache from the dye! ikkkkk. nite nite.

  31. Hi Chris

    I've been MIA for a few days and missed commenting on your giveaways. Dang it! Ah well, it will be a lucky person who wins them. 3 years of blogging is an awesome achievement!!

    And wow, check out the blue knife!! I LOVE kitchen gadgets and I've never seen anything like this. What is it made of?

    I hope your visit with the esteemed weight loss leader has inspired you with your journey. It sure sounds like you guys had a great time, anway.

    And I absolutely LOVE the hair. I think it really suits you. Enjoy being a brunette . . . until you change your mind again!

  36. Sorry to hear everyone is coming down with a cold. Love the new color, need to get mine done but don't have the time. Nice to hear you had such a great visit with your friend. How lucky Stew cooks, my DH can not manage to get himself something to eat let alone cook something. Hope the kids are on the mend and you got some sewing done.

  37. Love your hair brown, it also makes your eyes VERY blue. It suits you XXCathy

  38. Love the knife! I've seen them before, but never bought any. I think I could do blue or green ones.

    The fabric is really pretty! Glad I have quilters in my family who could teach me a thing or two.

    Your hair looks great! Woo hoo!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love the dark (not so very) hair - don't worry about going lighter - I used to be blonde but then it got darker and now that I have passed 60 it's getting much lighter again - OK, white - but that is lighter isn't it????

    ReplyDelete
  40. Chris, I think you are one of the few people who can do any hair colour and look good, you really can.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Your hair looks great! Very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hi ya, Agree with the others, that colour looks GREAT. Always thought your hair looked really good when you would post pic's after it had been lightenend, but I think I've changed my mind, the dark looks really good on you.

    You must be one of those lucky people who can go light or dark. I look hideous with light hair, so don't have the option to change. Dark and some red are the only choices I get.

  43. I love the fabric!

    Your hair looks fantastic! Your crystal clear blue eyes are amazing! You are so lucky.

  45. Now that's nice. Looked good blonde, but do like the darker colour more. Suits you!
