SW: Yoda Santa

Another quickie...

since the power here at work keeps cutting in and out (my 'puter has died and rebooted twice already this AM).

Hair stuff: Whee! I reached 100 posts on the LHC, so I can browse the private journals/picture journals! Hee - I know what I'll be doing today :lol:

I'm wearing my hair up in a french twist again today, held by the 3-prong paduak fork. It's messy - my hair doesn't want to cooperate. It's all right, though - I'm in sweats today, so messy hair goes with the outfit.

Think I'll cassia this weekend - I'll only mix up 1/2, though, and I won't add as much liquid. Then...maybe an SMT on Sunday? Or not...we'll see how it goes. I definately want to cassia, though.

I've also got the itch to make some more hair toys. I got into Nightshade's journal, and she had posted a link to some way cool hair spirals, and what she has in mind to replicate them. I might have to do the same thing....:grin: I also want to make a "Christmas" hair stick - red and green beads. Don't know if I'll have time this weekend, though - I have got to get my loom warped! The reed is sleyed, I just need to thread the heddles and wind on....but that takes lots of time. I can forsee the kids will be watching a lot of TV tomorrow...:lol:

I'm nearing the end of the Victorian Shawl (yeah, yeah - pictures. I'll post pictures when it's done....promise!) - I'm almost out of yarn. Can't wait to get it finished, so I can start on something small and quick!

Himself is working on a super-seekrit present on the RH loom. He's only about 1" into it, but it looks good, and the fabric feels really nice. He needs to get cracking - Christmas is coming up pretty quick! Herself hasn't decided what she wants to give this year....we need to think on this.

Power's flickering again - better sign off!
