Still bumbling along.

Still alive! Still no camera and very little in the way of needle craft to show off anyway! I have knitted a half a pair of booties for our pregnant friends! LOL I'll knit the other half soon.
I'm still learning to live with slightly shorter hair. I loved it when I came out of the salon, the stylist had straightened it for me. I've had a few goes since, with minimal success! LOL My sister in law did a much better job, but even she didn't get that real sleek effect Kirsten managed to achieve. Practice, practice I guess.
The reason I've done so little crafting has become less about the temperature and more about the hunt for a new job. I'm all signed up with some agencies now and every day I'm at the job seekers website. I've been told that I'm over qualified for one job I applied for, and well you know how it is, some organisations don't even bother to acknowledge your existence when you CV lands with them! I also have a part time course guide from the local college and I'm planning a couple of courses, provided of course I can make it fit around my current job.
As I have no crafts of my own to show off, here's a peep at Moya's latest offering. I've shown a smaller section of this top before I'm sure I have. It's a work in very slow progress as Moya is currently working two jobs!
Her day job in the office and an evening job at the restaurant. That doesn't leave much time for all the house work and keeping up with the children, never mind time to sew!
Speaking of housework, I'm off to wave a duster about, somebody wrote in it!

Good luck with the hunting. I'm sure something will come along. Myra's quilt is lovely. She will love it when she gets it finished.

I think your new haircut looks lovely.
Hope the job hunt goes well and you find something that suits you and pays a good salary too.

Warmest regards,

It's so hard to make hair look as good as the hairdresser does, but I'm sure you'll find a way to wear the new hairdo that you like. Good luck with the job hunt! I am still working on being fulltime self-employed when I get home.

WOW, what a change, looks great, but doesn't it feel ever so funny for the first few washes, so light and ... not there. And you are so so right, the hairdresser always makes it looks so easy peasy to do, but then try yourself, hrmph!!

Good luck with the job hunting. I know it's not a good time at the moment, but I'm sure there's something out there just waiting for you! (Also feel your hair pain. I'm not good with hair either, but I'm sure you'll crack it!)
