What is happening to my hair?

My hair has been straight, all my life.  Til lately, I’ve been noticing a bit more wave to it.  So today, I decided to try to go with it.  I put some curl booster spray on it and scrunched it, while I was drying it.  I usually can’t get it to have this much wave if I use rollers…weird…

See my new header? That is my neighbor’s pine tree.  It is right on the edge of his yard, by ours.  There are actually two of them.  I hope they never cut them down.  They were so beautiful today, with all the frost on them.

Tonight is the end of my little “stay-cation”.  It’s back to work time. I’d love to have one more week to stay home and quilt.  It’s been a nice break, but not the best vacation, as I had a couple of bad headaches, that lasted two days each.  And, I’ve just been really achy.  More so than usual.  Not just in my shoulder, but my spine, my right arm, my feet, my hips, across both shoulders.  Really achy.  My bones are not happy for some reason.  Maybe just the weather.

I did make four more pillowcases yesterday. This time, I did not add the trim, as I realized how much pressing the trim needed after I washed it.  Since these are donation cases for pediatric cancer patients, I would think less ironing would be more desirable.

I have one border to add to the Oklahoma Backroads quilt I am making for Mom.  I also made the backing for my remaining 9P & stripe quilt, and need to finalize a quilting plan in my mind.  I’m trying very hard not to start anything new just yet, and get some thing finished.  I would like a longer finished list in 2010 than I had in 2009.

Hope you have a great week and find time to do something you love!

  1. I have no idea what’s going on with your hair, but I LOVE IT! Hmmm, mine’s bone straight and going silver….think it’s too late for it to develop some curl? LOL


  2. Gorgeous hair! Whatever is going on with it is good. 🙂
    I would agree about the pine trees. Treasures that shouldn’t be cut. Nice to be able to look out and enjoy them.
    You know, I have had the same problem with the little trim on the pillowcase. I like the look, but not enough to iron them down. I’ve thought about narrowing the the trim and maybe adding a little cording to keep it in line, but then again, the contrasting cuff is probably enough trim. Anything grammy does will please the grandkids, too.
    Happy New Year!


  3. I’d love to have your hair! Mine is baby fine and poker straight. Ugh! Plus mother nature has decided to start adding some frost, similar to that topping those gorgeous trees that line your yard. Only frost is not so gorgeous in my hair. LOL! So I play a trick on old mother nature — I color it. Hehehehehe.

    Happy quilting in the new year! :o)


  4. OMG Randi, your hair is gorgeous!

    And the tree…..beautiful!

    Cute pillowcases…sorry the headaches messed with your vacation, but hopefully you had mostly good time.

    Happy New Year!!


  5. Oh what I would give for hair like that! Mine is stick straight.

    You know, I have had muscle/joint pain for years. Since I started my elimination diet to figure out my new allergens my pain lessened considerably. But since I confirmed wheat and onions I am almost completely pain free and I sewed ALL weekend!


  6. Your hair is gorgeous! Mine was stick straight all my life – and then in the past 3 or 4 years it has gotten more curly. But, it would take more than curls to be a beautiful as that gorgeous hair you are blessed with. The trees are beautiful – amazed at the frost! Enjoy!


  7. Could it be that you are pregnant. Now, now no throwing things. : )

    Nope…no chance. Hysterectomy in ’05. So, I guess it’s just from getting old. 🙂


  8. Oh, my goodness, thick and wavy – I sooo jealous. Hey, I ate all my bread crusts as a kid that were supposed to give me curls, but NO – didn’t work, and I face straight hair the rest of my days. Enjoy it while you can – do you think it might change again? Interesting.


  9. I really don’t know where it’s coming from? Or when exactly it started happening. But, I hope it keeps it up. I always wanted some curls. I don’t have the good kind of straight hair…I have the hard to do anything with kind. I also have plenty of that natural frost of my own coming in, but color it as well. I don’t suppose the coloring would make it wavy, would it?? I hope today wasn’t a fluke. It was sure easier to style. Thanks for the compliments on it!


  10. Randi, beautiful hair!!! I love the curls, the layering, the color and the length (okay, so yes—I love your hair! LOL).

    The pillowcases are such a great idea and a loving, kind thing to do.

    You’re pretty wonderful! Hope you have a great 2010!


  11. Your hair looks fabulous! Mine went from platinum blonde and stick-straight to medium brown and curly when I hit puberty – maybe your hair is just a late bloomer? 😀 😀


  12. Randi, If I remember my cosmotology right, and please don’t take this as Gospel, somes the root changes shapes for many reasons. It can be medicines, treatments such as chemo, and even as we age it can happen and that is what changes the way your hair grows. Strait, wavy, curly, frizzy or sometimes not at all unfortunately. I do love the trees, they are gorgeous.


  13. Thankfully my hair is settling down with age, its always been very curly. Maybe its wearing it longer and having more styling aids that helps me. Your curls look great!

    Beautiful tree pictures frost really adds such a spectacular touch to the world. I guess snow does too, just wish it wasn’t accompanied but such cold weather!!


  14. Whatever’s changing with your hair, I hope it continues to be as beautiful as it is now. How fun to have thick and wavy/curly hair as we put on a few years!

    When I read about your headaches, it really bothers me. NO, the pain is not caused by the weather. That’s not normal… and to have to put up with all the migraines isn’t normal either. I’d like to see you pester your dr. until he can get to the bottom of the migraines. Of course, that would be a big headache itself. : )

    So glad to see you posting again.


  15. I can’t believe how much curl your hair has. It’s very pretty! Those trees are pretty too. That’s a good point about the trim on the pillowcases. Maybe I’ll leave the trim off the ones I’m donating to ConKerr.


  16. Randi, I love the new hair!!! My hair changes all the time since I had my hysterectomy. I was told it was due to normal hormonal changes since I don’t do HRT! I never know day to day week to week or month to month what I will have. I try to keep a style that I can “play” with to get me through. Hope this helps you some. And..your aches etc sound kinda like mine when my fibromyalgia is flared up….ever been checked? I don’t want to scare you or be your doctor but it sure sounds familiar. Get checked out..no one should ache that much! Miss talking to all my old quilting friends but I am trying to get back!!
