Back To School...Thank the Gods!

School is officially in full swing tomorrow. What a relief. Over the past week the kids have gotten really unpleasant. It will be nice to have them away from each other for most of the day. I look forward to getting some things done this week. Like maybe making a start on secretive christmas knitting.

I would really like to get some sewing done this week as well. I have some patchwork skirts started for the girls and would like to get some things for myself done. Momma needs a new skirt or dress, too! Today I bought some fabric with my birthday gift card. I did it with a promise (to myself) I would get my skirts sewn up first. I'd like to shrink my fabric stash, and those patchwork skirts are NOT making a dent in it. I don't have enough of any one fabric to make a dress for myself. Or a skirt, for that matter. One of my new plans is to make some patchwork quilts. Surely THAT will start to make a dent.

Tonight, we had a first in our house. Knitter #3 got her first hair trim! She was not really wanting one, but she was starting to get split ends. And at almost 8 years old, I thought it was time. She hadn't had a single trim in her ENTIRE life. Not even an escapade with scissors. It was a first trim by mom for Knitter #2. I use a method called Feye's Self Trim. That's really just the name of her page explaining how to do it. A lot of long hair people like myself use it to trim their own hair. Because we don't trust hair dressers to not cut too much of our hair off. Now I can't tell people she's never had a hair cut...

Eight years with no trims! Wow, your little one must have had beautiful fairytale ends.

I love fey's hair trim method. It's one of the best things I have learned from hair forums. A way to control how much is cut off without having to trust a hairdresser.

I'm happy to see you blogging.
