Day 30: Project Quilting’s Starting Soon

Lost your quilting mojo? Sometimes smaller projects with tight deadlines are super helpful in getting it back.

Project Quilting (PQ) is a series of one-week challenges. Season seven starts on January 3rd. Check out the full calendar here.  Post your completed projects and win random drawings for prizes. Vote for your favorites and win viewer’s choice. One week to create, another to vote, then another challenge begins. There are six challenges per season.

I’ve participated before and am looking forward to getting back into the groove of sewing. Here’s what I’ve made in previous seasons.

Don’t Yank My Hair!

My haircut this week was just in time for another transition: a new job! I’m excited to get back into childcare as a nanny for a local family with two young children. As it turns out, one is an infant, and will soon be in the grabby phase. You know, when anything within reach goes directly in the baby’s mouth? My long hair used to get wrapped around tiny fingers and yanked right off my head in clumps. OUCH! So, my stylish new look also comes with the bonus that there’s less to pull.

My hair was pretty long before we started.

Okay, so I blinked. But you can still see how happy I am as the stylist shows me different ways to work my new look.

I’m looking forward to playing with my new ‘do. Mom even bought me some mousse, a curling iron, and something called pomade. She has three boys, one of whom I married, so it’s fun when we do girly things together.

My next post will include updates on my handwork projects. Stay tuned!
