Veering off from sewing for a momento

Seems to be coming a bit of a habit this veering away from sewing, I just haven't done much lately, have got a pair of jeans cut out though so I might whip them up tomorrow, it's coming into summer and I need more 3/4s. It's pretty cool that I can get 2 pairs out of 2m, if I find denim on special, it makes for a very economical pair of pants!!

So now to the veering part.
For years, I've had very long, very straight eyelashes. I even used to trim them when I was younger, and have always hated them. Yes it's lovely to have long lashes, but when you have no curl to them, they are a pain and just don't have that pretty look.
I'd read about eyelash perms, and finally treated myself after a long exhausting week. Never have I done something like this, so it was a real treat!
She had a lot of problems, as my lashes are quite thick, I guess it's why even when I've used those lash curlers, they've never stayed curled, no matter what I tried.

Once she'd done it, and I looked in the mirror, the tears welled up. It's absolutely amazing, for the first time in my life, I have curly lashes. And they just look so beautiful, my eyes are so different!!!

Here is the before side on.
Here is the after

My left eye looks ultra gimpy there. Strange lol.

But the difference in the lashes is amazing. For anyone who's ever considered it, do it!!! Totally painless, and only took 30mins.


  1. wow what a difference! How cool :-D Yay for treats!


  2. I'm always jealous of your lashes Amz. LOL.
    They look so purty all done up with mascara. I'm so chuffed.

  3. I had NEVER heard of eyelash perm but it's really impressive, wow! Looks great!
