The Clara dress for Hayden is coming along. I was worried about using this variegated tonal yarn but I think it's working out just fine. This is a fun little design to knit and I'm so thankful for my knitting group friend, Dawn, who gifted it to me. I hope Hayden will enjoy wearing dresses because I see quite a few of these in her future.
And because I was bored enough to take funny photos of myself in the bathroom and I thought you might also be bored and could use a good laugh, or possibly a good scare...
There's a reason people with curly hair don't brush their hair.
I have no idea what the reason is for the crazy eyes. I have to say though, this photo does live up to my nickname. My husband calls me Marie. It started off Marie Laveau but over the years it's been shortened to simply Marie. Many of his friends and coworkers think it's my actual name because they hear it so often and when Mike calls me by my real name, it sounds very, very wrong.
Why Marie Laveau? Have you ever heard the song, Marie Laveau by Bobby Bare?
Yeah, I'm the swamp witch. Mike means it as a compliment. Or at least that's the story he sticks to. He says I used magic to capture his heart and make him fall in love with me. Awww, isn't that sweet? Although.... swamp witch... But with that photo of my crazy eyes and brushed hair, I'd have to say he might be on to something.
