On a slightly different note, on Friday I donated over 13" of hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, an organization that makes wig for women battling cancer. Here is my "before" picture:
Donating my hair is something I have always wanted to do but I've always given up growing it before it's long enough or not been able to donate because my hair was damaged or colored. But this time I was determined. I'd been growing my hair out since college and the time felt right for a change. Here is my "after" picture:
Stay with me, we'll get to quilts in a minute. In early 2011 a family member of my husband was diagnosed with brain cancer and given only a short time to live. He had two very young children and a wife and was uninsured. Because he was uninsured his family decided to hold a fund raiser to help him with his medical bills.

So I guess the point I'm trying to make is that there was special meaning for me when I donated my hair. And I'm so glad that I did.
