i'm almost over it...i think

Being in this sick funk has really stunted my crafting lately. I have several things that need to get sewn and I haven't even taken my sewing machine out of it's case for three weeks!

to sew:
- drawstring backpack for my little cousin Kenneth
- remaining portion of Em & Han's Christmas gifts
- stuffies for Miriah's friends
- nap mat for custom order

The nap mat is actually cut out and on the table and is my number one priority. If I can finish that up tomorrow that would be lovely. The christmas gifts will be fast too, they're also cut out. Ha, the little backpack is cutout too! Ok so I'm better than I thought, just need to put all the cut out pieces together with some thread.

Since I've been home fron New Orleans I've been spending a lot of time on the couch in my parent's sunroom. I usually pull the piano bench up to the couch and use it as a table for al the stuff I accuulate while just sitting.

As you can see, I've been knitting my red beret that I'm very excited about wearing soon. That foot in the background is David lying on the floor playing some xBox. Some of the other pics I took of him playing looked rather creepy on the tv. It's a game about zombies and abandoned buildings after a nuclear fallout...appropriately named Fallout, ha. I've also been reading blogs like crazy. I get in these moods where I'd rather read about everyone else than post about myself. The one you see on the screen is a wedding blog I've gotten hooked on (shhh, don't tell!)

Another random thing I tend to do when I'm stuck at home for long periods of time is cut my hair. Sometimes this is good and other times...not so much. Luckily, my hair ended up pretty good this time. I thought I had fixed my hair last time I gave it a trim but I was still having problems. This time I spent more time on it (and not at 3am!) and it turned out much better.

(not the greatest pic, i know)

Does anyone else out there cut their own hair? I've been doing it myself for nearly 4 years now and I love it. I couldn't afford to pay someone else to do it anyway.

Hope to have some finished products to post about soon :)


  1. Wow, that's really impressive that you cut your own hair. Looks great, too!
