I also got crafty and did some quilting---I bought some squares from ebay and haven't done anything with them.
so, I pulled out a quilting book, figured out what I could do with the squares (they are all 4" squares, 48 of them) and figured this out:
I think it's quite cute!
I also picked up little man's baby-jays this morning and managed to finish one.
I forgot how much I lover my addi's.
the "I dreamed of Africa" socks were done on susan bates--they were shorter and not the greatest for socks on one circular.
with the addi's though--just zipped along, got one done and am going to finish the other one today!
it almost makes up for the eyebrow disaster....
I bought a different waxing kit--thought it would be nice to try something new.
not. so. much.
um..yeah, the wax just went on like a big drippy mess and even though I didn't even rip it off, it still took half the eyebrow with it. I seriously spent an hour soaking my eye, rubbing gently, combing and everything else I could think of....
it looks fine when I pencil it in, but after swimming I feel like I want to run for cover.
is it just me, or do I look like vanilla ice????
