Blockheads 3 - Week 12

Try not to look too closely at my block.  At 6" square, there are a whole lot of wonky pieces jammed together.  Do I care? No I do not.  When it's all in the mix........ it will be wonderful.  And perfection is just not high on my list right now.
This week's block is courtesy of Janet Clare and you can find it HERE.http://www.janetclare.co.uk/home.htm


I should take this opportunity to say something inspiring and comforting for all of us in this unprecedented time.  Everything worth saying has been said.  We are all in this together. Health care workers are in my thoughts and prayers hourly. 

I'm looking forward to when we can all get together in person.

There is a much more trivial matter that has been on my mind.  My hair.  

Folks, it's probably just as well you don't see me in person right now.  It's not a good look.  One of the good things is that my hair grows fast. Very fast. It's one of the bad things too. I'm trying to be positive and maybe, just maybe, in a month or so it will be long enough to look chic and sophisticated like this.

Unfortunately, in the meantime - it's going to look a whole lot like this.

Here's hoping all of you and your family are well and that you are quarantined with a hair dresser.

Love your comments on hair. My hair is thin : ( but worse it's
so curly! (fruzzy)
The trend now is to embrace the curly...
My hair looks insane!
Thank you for the prays for the health care workers.
I've been a nurse for a long time (40yrs)
When I'll this started I came home in tears

I have no positive hopes for my hair. I could get out the wig I wore sometimes during my chemo days.

Love your blocks, and your fabrics. Just got a new infusion of your latest line of fabrics, so wonderful. Just missed the cutoff, no pun intended, for the hairdresser. The bob is way out of shape now and likely to stay that way. Ponytail ahead. This is the only time in my life I've been happy I didn't finish nursing school and went into medical administration instead. Praying for medical staff daily, they are on the front line of a very sad war. Meanwhile we are staying in. Not mandated by the TX governor, but city by city for sure at least around DFW. Keep well.

Oh, the hair reference is hilarious! My hair appointment is scheduled for the middle of this month. Not going to happen, I'm sure. Oh well. I know how to use scissors. The rotary cutter would not be a good idea! Lol!

Thanks for the laugh. Yes, you have a picture of me, the second, wishing I had hair that would look like the first. At least I don’t have to worry about those ugly roots like so many will. LOL Your blocks are beautiful too.

My hair appt was just about this all started and I declined to go, never dreaming this could last so long! YIKES! Guess I will find out how long my hair can get and if I can have a great hair style. (I doube it!)
