Quilt With Us

Here I sit waiting for the magic of color to work on my hair. I looked in the mirror last night and told myself that I would not venture outside my house again without doing this. Waited too long this time and noticed that I am looking my age (just turned the big mid century mark). Guess I should be glad I have hair!!

My oldest step daughter is moving out so now that bedroom will be free for my newest member of the family. It has been bought and paid for since the quilt show in Paducah in April. It is an Innova. Does anyone have one of these? Please send comments if you do as I am going to need all the help and encouragement I can get! I am going to shampoo the carpet in that room first as it has seen two daughters use that room with makeup, food spills and a dog. I am so excited but kind of scared too.

I also have decided to go out and get me a new digital camera. I will need to teach myself how to download pictures so I can show them to you. That is my goal this summer. Well, off I go to rinse out this color and try and look 10 years younger!!

Well Marla, thought about dying my hair once and my sister says to me " You earned it, wear it with pride" Never forgot it and so I have greying hair and love it.

I'm not familiar with Innovas, but sounds interesting. Having a new space to organize is fun and exciting. Please do learn to take and post pics, I'd love to see them!

Hi! Sounds like a lot of wonderful plans are ahead of you. Coloring your hair, well as an x hair stylist... I can asure you that it does make a difference in how you look and feel, especially with that new age. You will feel wonderful this afternoon... as for the new room... what a blessing to have this for your new toy! Sounds like all is going along great! Coloring the hair can take many years off of you. So go feel extremely spunky today! Hugs Morgan

Wow - a lot happening in your life, fun stuff. I'm sure you will love your new Innova. I don't have one, but it looks like a wonderful "toy". You will fall in love with digital photography. It is so great to be able to take all the pictures you want without worrying about how much it will cost to develop and print them all.

I'm excited for you! It's so good to have goals, now get out there and make it happen. You're helping to motivate me. I gave up coloring my hair almost 20 yrs ago. It just grows too fast to keep up with the roots.

Well Marla, it sounds like you're celebrating the big 50 with gusto! New hair, new room, new Innova (is it a sewing machine?), new camera! I can't wait to see what you download for us! Let me know if you need any help loading pics on this site.
