 I have been working on Butterfly Fairies - Day this past week and got alot done.  Of course I did stitch thru 2 races last Sunday - the Indy 500 and Coca Cola 600.  Also I was off on Monday for the Holiday and that gave me extra stitching time. 

We had another hot day here yesterday.  I try to keep everything turned off to battle the heat.  I got up this morning to find my furnace running even though it is turned off.  I can see a new furnace in the future.  My house is 30 years old and things are just breaking down.
This is a picture of my braid that I had cut off Wednesday after work.  It is 24 inches.  This was my first hair cut in a salon since I was 5.  I have cut my hair myself at different times but I have not had short hair since I was 5. I can't believe how easy it is to take care of my hair now.  A couple of swipes with the brush and I am ready to go.  My braid will be going to Locks of Love.  I just need to take it to the post office.

I am up to a new start in my rotation.  Hopefully I will have some good progress to show next week.

Butterfly Fairies is looking beautiful.
Wow - that is a long length of hair. I am sure it will be put to good use. My niece did the same thing a couple of years ago.

Wow, you really got a haircut!!! Locks of Love is a great organization! I've donated hair to them a couple of times, even though I'm starting to get grey now. IDK if they pick out the grey or not... Your Butterfly Fairy ~ Day looks wonderful. I have that chart too, and I want to do it some day!!
