I mentioned that Jac’s hairdresser bailed on her at the last minute for the wedding. Not only that, she did so by JUST NOT RETURNING OUR CALLS.  The week before the wedding.  The timing of that drama bomb was just awful and trying to get a replacement hairdresser at the last minute proved much more difficult that we thought it would be.

I did manage to find someone, who was both talented and free that day, but she also charged about 3 times what the previously booked girl did.  This was pretty far outside the budget and I was able to barter with her to do the work at half her usual price in exchange for a custom made blanket.  She didn’t give me a lot of direction on what she wanted other than lots of purple and bright colors, so I was left on my own to find inspiration.  My muse is sort of unpredictable and this time it came in the form of a spreadsheet I was working on at my day job:

I’m really happy with how it turned out, and pleased to report that so was she.  Another crisis averted with yarn.
