Not for a pattern, but for this:
Which helped me get this:
I usually grow my hair out in the cold (well, OK, cool) months and thought about skipping it this year in favor of a Beatles-esque shag. I scoured Flickr for just the right photo, but most were either not mod enough or too androgynous (I am OK with a boyish cut but don't want to be mistaken for a boy). So I grew it out like normal.
Last summer I decided to buy a BWOF to see if I actually sewed anything from it before investing in a subscription, but I didn't like most of the styles in the summer issues. Fall rolled around and I liked many of the clothes in BWOF 11-2008, plus the cover model had The Exact Haircut I Wanted. Someday I'll get around to sewing one or two of the garments, for sure. No really, for sure! I really mean it. Kind of.
Kyle mentioned Blogging Project Runway to me when we met up in San Anton. a couple weeks ago, so I paid a visit this morning and saw the news that Project Runway's next season - 6 - will start in June on a new network called The Weinstein Network. I will have to check out whether this new channel will be available on DISH or if I will need to look at Time Warner or DirectTV or whatever. I'd rather subscribe online... maybe through iTunes?
Update 9:41 p.m.: Blogging Project Runway was playing an April Fool's joke, and there's no TWN or a season 6 that begins there in June??? That's choice, that I have never gone to the site except on APRIL FOOL'S DAY and decided to share the good but inaccurate news! Yeah, you got me. Awesome!
But really, Kyle says no April Fool's, it will be on Lifetime for 5 years? This time though, look for yourself. The last time I tried to report on it I got punked.
Great hair cut/style! Thanks for the info on Project Runway too although I don't get that channel. Hope it still runs on one that I do get.ReplyDelete
Make sure you follow the link from the Project Runway page that says click here for full press release to be sure you get all the details!!!ReplyDelete
Love the bee banner. Bzzt!ReplyDelete
Wow your hair is so short and cool! Have you ever thought about spiking it? Someone I used to work with ages ago had short spiky hair and she really rocked it. I bet you could too!
Oh, and I think the Weinstein Network is April Fools...ReplyDelete
Ooh, they posted an update--it really will be on Lifetime...for 5 years!ReplyDelete
aw! you're so cute. I like the new do!ReplyDelete
LOVE the new hair! Super cute. And love the new blog banner too.ReplyDelete
Um....so is PR coming back or not? I really hope that rumor is true true true. Top Chef is never a replacement for Project Runway (though it sorrrt of appeases me)
Now that you have a trendy new haircut, you might need to get some glasses that don't distract from it!ReplyDelete
Love the do! I use to wear my hair short-- the Demi Moore in Ghost look. I loved it! Also, I haven't abandoned the pant sew along--I am trying to get a dress done along with Easter dresses for my gals. And for some reason, I decided to redecorate (on a strict budget..,) and found myself making curtains this week! The pants are next!ReplyDelete
Cute haircut! And no, I heard through regular news media this morning that PR6 really is starting on Lifetime this summer. Woohoo!ReplyDelete
Love your hair style, it fits you perfectly. I wish I could pull that mod hair cut off too, but I just don't look good in bangs.ReplyDelete
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR HAIR!! its super chic and awesome. :)ReplyDelete
If it's on EW.com, it's got to be true, right? http://popwatch.ew.com/popwatch/2009/04/project-runway.htmlReplyDelete
Plus it even mentions Bravo's PR replacement show called "The Fashion Show". I saw an ad for it on Bravo last night while watching, ahem, "Make Me a Supermodel" which has no content but I can't stop watching...
First, love the hair. makes me want to cut mine off! and second, thanks for the real tip about PR starting up in June. I know they've been fighting over which network gets the rights for some months. figure it out folks, we need another season!ReplyDelete
Usually what I do is, as I'm reading through my Bloglines feeds/the blogs I'm following for my Sew Craft Blog group throughout the week, if anything jumps out me as cool or really useful, I bookmark it in my web favorites list (I have a folder to save the bookmarks in for easy access). For the tutorials, I've started Wisting them at the same time so that I can easily find them later if needed. I don't actually write the posts until Fridays (which is why when RL gets insane on Fridays, it tends to get skipped as of late), and just organize them by whatever loose categories I feel like that day. Thanks for the comment, though-- it's good to know people are actually reading it!ReplyDelete
Your hair looks awesome!!! Very nice. *hugs*ReplyDelete
