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.

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
ask my husband if I could retire...

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!)

The hair is so me lol. Your Block has so many ideas!


i couldn't believe that i would ever be re-unite with my ex-lover, i was so traumatize staying all alone with no body to stay by me and to be with me, but i was so lucky one certain day to meet this powerful spell caster Dr Akhere,after telling him about my situation he did everything humanly possible to see that my lover come back to me,indeed after casting the spell my ex-lover came back to me less than 48 hours,my ex-lover came back begging me that he will never leave me again,3 months later we got engaged and married,if you are having this same situation just contact Dr Akhere on his email: thanks very much sir for restoring my ex-lover back to me,his email: or call/whatsapp:+2349057261346

hindi ako makapaniwala na kailanman ay muling makiisa ako sa aking kasintahan, labis akong na-trauma sa pananatiling nag-iisa na walang katawan na manatili sa akin at makakasama ko, ngunit napakasuwerte ako sa isang tiyak na araw upang matugunan ito malakas na spell caster na si Dr Akhere, matapos sabihin sa kanya ang tungkol sa aking sitwasyon ginawa niya ang lahat ng makataong posible upang makita na ang aking kasintahan ay bumalik sa akin, sa katunayan matapos na ihagis ang spell ang aking dating kasintahan ay bumalik sa akin ng mas mababa sa 48 oras, dumating ang dating kasintahan ko. bumalik sa pagmamakaawa sa akin na hindi na niya ako pababayaan, 3 buwan mamaya kami ay nakipag-ugnay at nag-asawa, kung nagkakaroon ka ng parehong sitwasyong ito makipag-ugnay lamang kay Dr Akhere sa kanyang email: maraming salamat sa sir sa pagpapanumbalik ng aking dating kasintahan bumalik sa akin, ang kanyang email: o tumawag / whatsapp: +2349057261346
