Oh, that's so cute!

SilverMoon, I have to admit when I first saw your picture, I thought, "Wow, her mom has purple hair too!" Then about 5 seconds later I realized it was you. Doh! The cowl is gorgeous, as well as your hair. That's one of the biggest things I miss about not being a "professional." All through high school and college I had different colors in my hair and loved it. Now it's just brown. Tongue

High school I wasn't allowed non-natural colours, and after high school I went straight into the job market. Not into a job mind you... I had a bit of a mini mid life crisis when I turned 29, and thought up a bunch of stupid things to do that I was getting on the "almost too old for" side. Dying my hair purple was one of them, and I was only going to do it with one bottle, but I loved it so much I've had it since October. I have to redye it every second week because it fades so fast, but it's worth it for now. Once my hair gets longer maybe not so much. Rebleaching my roots every 3 months is no fun.

Oh, and since I'm working on nothing but swap stuff for the rest of the week, here's a picture posted by my partner in the Be Awesome swap gallery

rackyroo--I like your felted basket! So delicate and yet sturdy, too, I bet.

Silvermoon--if you go white by age 45 (like me), you can have purple hair EASIER. No roots to bleach out!  Roll Eyes (And i use purple shampoo anyway to keep it truly white and not yellow....)

Astromorray, I've never put a zip in like that for a little bag. Is it hard? Is there a tute here or somewhere? Is there an advantage to that way over top-zip? (Inquiring minds, again.)

The way my kids behave, it wouldn't suprise me if I went white in the next 15 years!  Grin

It's not hard, I guess, I've not done much sewing, really, so I don't know what to compare it to.  It doesn't have an advantage over the top zip, except that I think it looks cooler.  Wink

I wrote a tutorial a while back: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374018.msg4404996#msg4404996

The ones I'm doing now are long side 6.75x9 and short side 4x9 inches, but the basic plan still applies.

They stopped letting kids dye their hair after I did mine -- I guess it started a little bit of a trend, and it was found to be "distracting."

Also, I hope I didn't insult you by insinuating that you look like your mom (maybe you do... I don't know). It was just that you said the cowl was for your mom, then I saw the pic and that's how my brain works...

Ha! I just saw my best friend whom I hadn't seen for six years. She commented that I had more white hair than I used to. I told her they were highlights. Grin

It's ok, I knew what you meant. My mum does look good for 75, but not that good  Grin Besides, she dyes her hair brown, not purple  Cheesy

Bah! Somehow my lists got messed up Undecided

I keep a list in my 50 Projects book, and it has 20 projects listed as completed in it--I just finished two more, which I'll be posting pictures of soon. Problem is that on my list online, unless I can't count (which is totally possible!), I've got 21 completed projects. I'm so confused. I can't figure out where the issue happened.

So I guess I'll be redoing my list post. Blah.


ETA: Never mind! Figured it out! One of the ones I was counting as completed is in fact NOT completed--but it's a link! I forgot that I made one of the projects a link, so it's showing blue, and my completed projects are marked in teal. So I got confused.


Aaaand now back to your regularly scheduled programming Wink

Thank you. astromorray! I'm going to try it. It does look more like an intentional design element, not merely functional.

Silvermoon--I was a new teacher (age 27, after doing a bunch of other stuff) when my hair started going grey. I used to name them after especially "memorable" students, but then there were just too many. Three years ago, I quit coloring, just to see. Et voila, I had mostly really white hair under it all. I kinda like it, though it's a little sobering when people assume I'm older than I am. (If they look at my face, they realize their error. And if they're older than about 20.)

Maybe I should go purple, too!!! Would that count as a craft?!!!  Grin
