Lists, hair dye, and quilts


I am a list person. I love writing long lists of things to do so that I can cross them off and feel accomplished. Also, it makes it okay when I don't get ALL the things done because I can see I did a LOT of things. It's a way I keep my brain happy.

So, I am currently at my Dad's house, spending quality time of course, and am thinking of things I need to do when I get home. Attempting to bring my sewing things here would be outrageous so I simply make lists in order to get what to get done, done.

When I get home I will:
1. Finish my Grandma May's Lovebot.
(Kathy's mom wants a Lovebot with neon accents, so I picked lime green and pink as my colors.)

2. Work on a custom Lovebot, yippee!

3. Organize and try to create a "crafty corner".
(I always sew in one corner of my room and I want to make it more like a craft "room" without the room.)

4. Make another bunting banner, I've been hanging them up and don't have enough yet.

5. Dye my hair.
(I've started dying my hair from the box and love the results. I used a deep chocolate brown last time and this time I think I'll either do that again oooor be outrageous and attempt brown/black. Black is the only color I've never tried and I kinda want to just to see!)

6. Plan out a quilt.
(That's RIGHT! I want to make a patch work quilt. Nothing fancy, just something big and colorful.)

Do you have any plans for this next week?

Love and Turtledoves,


  1. Your Lovebots are SO cute! Oh my goodness!

    What brand of box dye are you using? I'm so sick of the stuff I use but I have issues with change, hehe.

  2. Thank you!

    I just started dying my own hair so I use Loreal Excellence Cream and I've liked it so far. Last time I used Chocolate brown (or something like that). I thought it was nice :)

    Love and Turtledoves,

  3. Did you do the dye yet? I recommend trying semi-permanent first since you mainly just want to see. :)

  4. Nope not yet! I probably will next week sometime, I'll be sure to post pictures :)


I'd love to hear what you think!
