Red, White and Blue...
Tessie came to me this morning, complaining..."My hair is a mess. I need to spend a day of beautifying...
In other words, she needed new hair.
She agreed to let me take one photo after I stripped her head, only if she could hide her face and be anonymous.
I said I would, then I snapped this part before she could completely cover her face. Sorry Tessie...
The hair that you see on her lap is all I need to make a braid for the back of her hair... Yup. Same hairdo. Same color...She's in a rut. Has been for about 400 years.
The braid was made from about 5" of the mohair, when stretched out. It is about 4" when braided. No standard measures. I make it longer than I need and then just cut off the excess.
She is now a perfect picture of Red, White and Blue.
Happy Forth of July to those who celebrate it. I hope that everybody has a great day!
See you tomorrow.
