Thanks, Curlgirl.  I found 2 skull & crossbones bracelets for $3.95 and I just took them apart and used the skulls for the hairpins.  I think I'll use the crossbones for a headband and I think I'll make two sets of skull bobby pins.  Gluing the crystals in the eyes was the hardest part. 
A tip: use the bottom of a birthday candle to pick up little pieces like the gems.  It works great.

I guess I was just hoping to be done so construction of the garment could begin.  Hrumph.

That's a great tip. And I gotta admit those skull bobby pins are pretty cute. Cool

I had a very rough weekend after my spinal adjustment on Friday.  All kinds of muscle spasms put quite a damper on my plans.  Well, that and a migraine.
I got an adjustment today along with some ultra sound massage and am feeling much better.

I feel like I'm loosing hair more easily lately.  Perhaps its from my less than stellar diet lately or from stress.  I've decided I'm going to begin regular meditation and yoga again to see if that has a positive effect on my hair like it will on the rest of my life.

The movie "Eragon" is on.  I think Jeremy Irons is pretty hot and has a very sexy voice.   Wink

I loved tonight's episode of "Castle", with the Steampunk vibe.  One of my friends, Nola, was an extra in that scene.  Unfortunately she was merely a flash at the very end.  Her garb is gorgeous-which she designed and made herself.  She is a costume designer, a very talented one.

Oh, I love Castle!  --Haven't watched Monday night's episode yet, though (probably tonight).  Those skull hair pins are to die for, darling.  Skull...die for...  bwahahahahahaaaaaaaa.  *ahem*

Trisha: Yeah, Castle is fun to watch.  And no bones about it, you're funny. *ahem*

Today I dragged myself out of the house to my Pilates class.  Then on to Whole Foods and finally home.

WTF-its 90 degrees today and supposed to be 97 for the next two days.  I hope we get a fall 'cause the scarves I bought in France are giving me dirty looks waiting to be worn in public!  Sacre bleu.  I don't know how to make the accent aigu.

I am so sorry it is so hot where you are.  I have been watching TWC and am amazed.  I am glad the wildfire didn't come near you.  It has been hotter than normal here, too.  The students are still wearing shorts and flipflops.  We are supposed to get rain tomorrow and lower temperatures.

Hope you feel better soon.  Muscle spasms, particularly in your back, are no fun.  Been there, done that myself.

As for the fingerless gloves, I have been looking for forest green or black yarn in sock weight for myself, but haven't found it. I did find a black/gray/white yarn that would knit up in stripes, if you would like that.  I thought it was a nice combo.   I am going to a couple of yarn stores on Fri. to look for the finer yarn.  I can find it in worsted, in both colors, which will work; I just prefer the finer yarn.  You get a closer fitting, more delicate glove.  If you don't care, I will just get the heavier yarn and get started.  Let me know which color you prefer, or I will do both.  Please measure the circumference of your palm.  $20 would cover the cost of the yarn and the work.

Melusine: Yeah!  It was 97 degrees today.  We've been very lucky about the wild fires.  We live close to the Tonto National Forest and it is always a concern, so far so good.

Thanks for the well wishes.  I am doing better.  May be getting some new orthodics in hopes it relieves some of the pressure on my back muscles.  I have a scoliosis from my accident that pulls me out of whack regularly.

About the gloves: I cannot wear any type of wool.  I think the plainer the better.  We don't have a costume nazi yet, but we're well on our way.  My palm measurement is 7.5".  I think I'd like finer yarn as well, both for fit and look.  I need to wait for the 22nd before I can send my check to 'ya.  Smiley

Today I've been working on some Halloween hair accessories.  Some specifically for my '50's pin up femme fatale vampire costume for the party and others for my witches costume.

Hubby and I got out the Halloween lights and have been shoring up the sign we usually hang above our garage.  We have a few things hanging up, lights and the sign will go up tomorrow night.  Just in time for some rain, I think.  Tongue

I'm at a frustrating length at the moment.  Longer than BSL but not yet at waist.  I keep looking at my hair and thinking "Ugh, not there yet!"  I am grateful for the length I have but...I guess I'm focused on the wrong thing.  Grrrr.

Trisha:No, it is not cassia.  BTW, there is no such thing as "neutral henna".  Henna is a totally different plant than Cassia Obavata, which is what you want.  Please read this:
http://www.hennaforhair.com/faq/cassiaobovata.html
http://www.mehandi.com/shop/cassiaobovatabuy.html

I buy my cassia from http://www.hennacaravan.com/shop/hair.html

I hope I've helped.


Now that hubby is working again and our finances have improved, I'm back on the cassia trail again.  I've looked at the pages above and...let me see if I understand.  Cassia can be used, in conjunction *with* henna, as a dye for blondish and grey hair, BUT it can also be used (alone) as just a conditioner.  Is that right?

Hi, Trisha.  Cassia mixed with henna will give a strawberry blondish color to lighter natural hair colors and greys.  When used alone it acts as a conditioner and will not leave any color if you do not mix it with acid (like lemon juice) or if you have dark hair. The yellow molecule of color is too light to show up if your hair is dark.  I get a kind of golden cast to my dark blonde/light brown hair.  Honestly, I'm not even sure what I'd call my natural color.
If your hair is super light, cassia could leave a golden color when mixed with acid.

I hope that's clear.  Undecided

Ahhhh.  Its such a disappointment when someone lets you down.  When it alters your perception of them.  I think its a case of their true nature being revealed and so I'll waste no more time with them.

I wish the sides of my hair were thicker.  They used to be.  I suspect birth control pills may be the culprit.  I've been massaging the area and I do have new growth.  Its gonna be a long time before they catch up in length.  Perhaps I'll consult my hairstylist on my next trim which is sometime in November.

Hubby and I did more outdoor decorating tonight.  Heeheehee, its pretty spooky.  Yay!

Yes, you explained it very well, thanks dear!   Smiley

I'm sorry someone disappointed you.  But look at it this way; at least now you know their true nature and, as you said, you can stop wasting time and emotion on them.
