What a day, WHAT! A! DAY!
FIRST — Hair Day!!!!!
My best friend gets MAAARRIIIED next weekend which means I absolutely HAD to refresh my summer locks before I head out to California for the big day!
(I am not taking selfies while driving a car. I am in the back of a VERY bumpy cab.)
If you are in the NYC area and looking for an amazing cut and color, Hair by Kasia is the way to go!!! Not only is Kasia an incredible stylist, she is also a ridiculously talented knitter. Head in there to spruce up your look and gab about WIPs!
THEN — Bedecked and Beadazzled Mystery Class (Long Distance)!!!!!
I have been a HUUUUUUUUGE fan of Ruth Schmuff for a long time and have been DESPERATELY YEARNING to take one of her mystery classes! One day, while visiting her kick ass blog Not Your Grandmother’s Needlepoint (let’s be real, I check it for updates every single morning because I’m insane), I saw the post advertising her latest mystery, La Sirena by Lulu Mypinkturle. SWOON SWOON DROOL FAINT. I mean…a Dia de los Muertos mermaid…and a cat-fish…like…a cat with a little fishy-tail…a freaking CAT-FISH.
I signed up immediately.
Anyway, the first class was this past Sunday at her store in Maryland (which I’m still determined to visit) Bedecked and Beadazzled. The awesome thing about her mysteries is that you can sign up “long distance” if, like me, you are trapped in a jungle…concrete or otherwise. Sooooo…TODAY THE FIRST SHIPMENT CAAAAME!!!
Here are my pretty new things all sprawled out and fawned over.
Dinosaur-size THANK YOU to everyone at Bedecked and Beadazzled for this perfect little bundle of awesomeness, especially Ruth Schmuff, Lulu Mypinkturtle, and Carol Eix. AAAAH I CAN’T WAIT TO GET STARTED!!!!!
FINALLY — Completed WIP!!!!!
I BEADED THE TOILET, TACKLED THE PLUNGER, AND FINALLY COMPLETED THE LOO!
Tomorrow, he’ll be sent off to the framer and I will move on to my next WIP. WHAT A SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT!

Now I am off to organize my massive pile of used thread, eat a super messy and delicious Philly Cheese Steak, and watch Seinfeld until I pass out.
