First: I had my hair cut for Locks of Love today. DD's hair was 10 inches in June 2007 and mine just finally reached the 10 inch mark! My hair stylist had said that Locks of Love has started accepting hair as short as 6 inches so she cut mine about 8 inches. I hope it still works! There might not be a lot of hair in my pony but, at least my heart is in the right place. :) Besides, growing our hair was something DD and I did together.
Second: I hurt myself...not as bad as a broken leg like Gingy here but, still painful in its own right. While at the lakehouse on retreat, I mis-stepped off the porch (in the dark, I might add) and fell. I had scrapped my knee but didn't worry to much about it. My right ankle started to throb Sunday then I flew home (about a 2 hour flight). Walked through the airport to meet my family, joking about my 'sport injury' and how sewing is a 'contact sport'. Well, imagine my surprise when each day the pain got worse and worse in the foot/ankle area! A trip to the Doctor on Wednesday revealed that the ankle was not broken but I most likely suffered a 'soft tissue injury to the tendon from the ankle to the knee'. The sore area is now wrapped in an ace bandage, elevated as far as it will go and I count the minutes until it is time for the next round of ibuprofen! DH slipped a tennis ball onto the end of DS's walking stick from when he was in 3rd grade Scouts that I am using to get around! I was very grateful that the walking stick had 'not been lost' in any of our moves :) Needless to say, very little sewing/quilting has taken place since I arrived home.
Third and Quilty: If you are interested in a Give Away, Jeanne at Luv 2 Stitch is celebrating her 200th post. She made an adorable stitchery and will sew it into something special to be given to the lucky winner of her drawing! You need to be quick though as her drawing takes place on September 30th.
Here is another cute Give Away: Hanne at Hanne's Quilt Corner is celebrating having her first patterns published! Just leave a comment on her post and blog about it and you are entered! Easy Peasy,right?!
Seems like Christmas is right around the corner :)
