X'mas SAL, Hardanger, & ...long hair



Here's a picture of my x'mas SAL for the month of April. Not yet finish into something as i am not sure how to or what kind. It's by Midsummer Nights Designs, featured at JCS 2007.






I've been working on this lately, though it was started a long time ago. Now, it's finally finish and hope to make it into a cushion one day.....







This is a picture of my hair after removing the french braid the next day. I LOVE it!! As well as DH and said maybe i could let it curls, i mean maybe the hairdresser can do something like this. I am afraid it might be a very expensive one but he said it doesn't matter. I only know the texture of my hair which is quite thick that it wouldn't be easy to work it with curls.
Oh by the way, one had ask how long is my hair...we've measured it last night from top... is 76cm(29.9 inches).

Thank you all so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leaving comments. I really appreciate them all and hope you'll continue to come and visit.

DH birthday celebration went well last saturday. TOO BUSY though! I've prepared a kind of buffet for the visitors in the late afternoon especially friends who are from the mainland and taking the last ferry home which was 9pm. But i end up 26 people for dinner including us, (10 kids ages 4 to 13.) I've prepared 6 different recipes and two of our friends from the mainland brought each recipes. WOW! Almost all were finished! And had lots of good compliments with our cooking. Hmmmm, honestly, i was too busy trying to please everyone i haven't had tasted all. Well, just happy everyone had enjoyed. Atleast, it wasn't so busy in the evening as in the afternoon...in the whole, nearly 40 people who dropped by!

Your stitching is beautiful. What a co-incidence. I just opened the french braids too and I have curls in my hair. My hair ain't that thick & long as yours. Your hair looks really pretty.

I love your hair Mylene - my DD Teresa has hair just like that - length AND curls, and boy is it difficult to wash and dry, lol! Love the ornie too of course!

Beautiful hair :)

Easy way to get the same curls would be to put braids in yourself after washing (doesn't have to be a french braid, it can be many small ones) and allow your hair to dry naturally. Or wash your hair and put rags in, and allow your hair to dry like that.

My mum used to do both for me when my hair was that length (and thickness).

Barbara said...

Oh what gorgeous stitching! And your hair ... sigh! I'm so jealous!

Lovely Mylene, both stitching and hair.

Mylene, congrats on your finishings. I love the hardanger. Your hair is beautiful. But if you have it permed, that long you will not like the way it feels and the weight of your hair could pull the curls out. I hope that makes since. Sounds like your huddy had a great birthday.
