Back-and-Forth Braided Updo

Hello friends,

On Sunday I started out making a simple braided headband, but ended up carrying the braid back and forth until I ran out of hair to add to the braid.  (I was braiding with the lace-braid technique, like a French braid but I only added hair to one side.)  I braided the length of my hair and put it in a horizontal bun.  I wanted to keep the over-all back-and-forth look going even in the bun.  Here are some pictures~ I hope you can see what I'm talking about~ my explanations can get muddled sometimes!

On another note, I'm so glad to live in a place that has year-round summer weather!  The tree I'm standing in front of is called "pwanang" in the local language, although I've heard that other places call it "King of Perfume."  And that is exactly what it is!  I'll have to post pictures of the flowers later.  They are little green star-like flowers with the most beautiful smell...
Thanks for coming by and checking out my new post!  Feel free to share with your friends who would like to follow me, too.
Merry Christmas from Wimsey and me :-)
