My stitching mojo has subsided somewhat, but that's ok. I worked on Mario for a little while and got a fair amount done. But before I show the progress I would just like to say that I'm scrapping my "goals." I've been doing a lot of thinking (about a lot of things) and I realized that stitching, for me, isn't about goals. It's about the sheer pleasure of the stitch. Yes, finishing a piece is an exhilarating feeling, but what good is it if you don't meet your goal and are only overcome with frustration? So there. I'm scrapping "goals."
With that in mind, here is my progress.
Like I said, the stitching mojo isn't as strong, but you can still see some progress.
Now about the title of this post, it has been an interesting weekend. I got my eyebrows threaded for the first time (an interesting experience, but not a bad one) and then, horror of horrors, I got my hair permed. It was my first perm and my first professional chemical treatment of any kind. I'd only ever done at-home coloring and not for many many years now. So I took the plunge and got a body wave perm. It looks ok so far. I haven't been able to do anything with it since you can't wash/style/wet your hair for a while after but come tomorrow I'll have a better idea. I'm surprised it even took considering my hair is made of evil and doesn't hold a curl, but we'll see if it stays in.
On that note, a photographer friend of mine has been trying to convince me for quite a while to do a photo shoot with him. I keep agreeing and then cancelling but I've now agreed (yet again) to do it at the beginning of June. I might actually go through with it this time. But we'll see. I'm a chicken.
Alright, that's it for this week. Happy stitching everyone and remember, every stitch brings you closer.
