Yep, I'm learning to live with having wavy hair. I had straight hair when I was younger, I don't know what the heck happened. LOL As I've gotten older my hair has decided to be curly or actually wavy. I've always straightened it. But living here at the beach in southern NC with all the humidity, lets just say it doesn't work too well with forcing your hair to be straight. So today I went to my wonderful stylist & told her we needed to figure out how to work with the waves. Here is the result. Oh, I'm also trying to let my bangs grow out.
Excuse the goofy photos of me.... I hate having my photo taken. :) We will see how I like it. It should be much easier to do anyway.
Update on the Orthoheel Tide flip flops.... they did make my arches sore the first few days that I wore them. But then I'm not used to wearing shoes with propper structure. I like them. And I have to admit that my feet don't hurt in the usual places when I wear them to work all day. My big toes aren't painful when I get home, & it doesn't hurt to walk around the house barefoot anymore either after being on my feet all day. I think I'll give them a thumbs up, & probably purchase another pair when I get some more money.
Now on to the fun stuff! Here is what I've sent in for the June Phat Fiber box. This is The yarn money you can save with the Phatfiber box stitch markers. he he
Jessie with Phat Fiber had made this cute logo so I just played off that & made some yarn with eyeballs. :)
I also have some new sheep in my Esty Shop. Bright sheep! They come in Purple, Pink, Lime & Aqua. I've got stitch markers & matching orifice hooks.
I also got a few things from Beth over at Blue Mountain Handcrafts. Don't you just love it when the mailbox is stuffed with fiber goodies when you get home?! Here is my plum Flower Fairy Caddy Sax & Little Buddy Bags. The photos don't do them justice, the material is just gorgeous!
And here is some lovely, soft, squishy superwash merino. I can't decide if I want to spin these & leave them separate or possibly ply them together.
Here are a few samples that Beth included. If you buy anything from her shop, make sure you look for the special listings! That is how I got these beauties.
Here is some more gorgeous soft & squishy superwash merino that I got from Micamynx on etsy. (I snagged her photo cause I forgot to snap one before I started spinning it.) She has lots of beautiful fibers & handspun in her store. And I love me some superwash merino! It spins so easily & it's sooooo soft.
Here is my latest finished handspun too. I stared with these batts that I carded, 50% domestic wool / 50% bamboo.
I ended up with 250 yards of soft, heavy fingering weight yarn. The bamboo gave it a nice shimmer too. You can't tell it in the photo but it has a nice graduated color change when it goes from purple to green.
Well, I think that's about it for today. That's enough huh? LOL
