A New Face


See that face? That's ME!! Look, there are eyebrows...and it looks like I have eye lashes...and even a little color in my face!?!?!? Isn't it amazing what a little make-up will do? My friend, Gail, and I went out last week for free massages at the Wellness House in Annapolis. We were talking and she asked me if I thought it was time to take off the wig (not sure why the topic came up...kinda made me wonder if my wig was looking ok or if it was a little tired from all the wear?) but I told her my hair still hadn't grown back, and hadn't she noticed I didn't have any eyebrows? LOL She told me she thought I had forgotten to put make-up on that day...(I don't usually wear any!!) After our day out last week we made plans to meet for lunch today. She surprised me with a free make-up application at Nordstrom (I don't usually shop there either! LOL) The guy was so sweet, and did such a lovely job, don't you think? And Gail insisted that I have the stuff to put eyebrows on every day, so here's my bag of goodies.

I hope I can do this to myself tomorrow...it will be interesting, that's for sure!! I have to admit, it looks like I have a face now instead of a blank canvas! My eyes were totally lost before....and you know what they say...look good feel good, and I feel like a million bucks!! Thanks Gail!!!

Now on to UFO day. Because I knew I was going to be out most of the day, I decided to put a few stitches in my Rose Quaker. I didn't get far, and I probably will stitch a little more on this later tonight, but I wanted to put pictures up so you can see how far I've gotten. My life HAS to slow down sometime soon, don't you think? I need to get some serious stitching done!! So here is before...


And after...


We are expecting snow over night, let's hope the kids make it in to school tomorrow, because Sonya and I have a stitch day planned. It's also DH's birthday so we have a few plans for when he gets home. Please, please don't let it snow too bad tonight!! I want to go out and play!! I'll let you know how that little prayer turns out *wink*. Have a great night!

You look smashing - but then you always did! Pleeease don't tell Mouse but I was all set - Mary Wigham: check, threads: check, pattern.....pattern? Drat, it must be in Michigan! So, AGAIN, no UFO stitching for me! I do like that Rose sampler. No snow here just fog all day and the poor WT is having problems coming from Paris :(

You look fabulous! I love how positive, yet HOW down to earth you are, but with this post, I feel like you are a kindred spirit. God Bless. Jane
