I know it has nothing to do with sewing...or does it?

Well, there were scissors involved.....

I was trying to decide on my hair cut~~~~

So I decided to go somewhere between the top left and bottom left picture and this is where I ended up....

Someone told me I didn't look so happy about my haircut so i had to take another picture =D

Christmas in April?

So I hit some yard sales this last saturday and I scored some thread @ like 50 cents for like 8oz skiens! I found a pretty burgundy and a really pretty teal. I loved the way the colors looked but I didn't really think about them looking like christmas so I sat next to my husband to watch tv and started crocheting it. Then I realized they were Christmas colors so that's what I'm up to now. I'm making a future Christmas present and I've got an early start LOL!!!

My very first skirt!

So here it is... My very first skirt ---- granted there is so much I've yet to learn about sewing. I really do suck and sewing on zippers still. I need to go find a tutorial for it on youtube or something. =D Just thought I'd share.

How to Fold a Fitted Sheet- From Woman's Day Mag

I thought this article might come in handy =)

Step 1

Spread the sheet out on the bed and fold it in half lengthwise by bringing the long edges together.

Step 2

Match up the fitted corners that are touching and insert each top corner into each bottom corner. Smooth out the sheet and make sure all four corners are tight and the edges are fairly straight

Step 3

Put your hands inside the tucked corners (like a puppet). Lift up the sheet and bring your hands together.

Step 4

Flip one tucked corner over the top of the other so all four tucked corners are together.

Step 5

Lay the sheet back on the bed and straighten up the side. The fitted corner will be rounded and the two adjacent sides will not be straight. Fold them over just enough so that the sheet makes a square or rectangle with relatively straight edges and square corners. It will be bulkier at the point where the fitted corners are tucked together. Smooth it down as flat as possible.

Step 6

Fold it once lengthwise, once width-wise. Smooth again. Mission accomplished!
