Machine Quilting and Another Birdie
I machine quilted for two hours yesterday morning. Yay me! Bliss is looking so good - and I'm about 4/5 complete with quilting, except for the border. I'm thinking two more quilting sessions should do it - I hope to finish the quilt by the end of the month!
And last night - yes, I finished Bird 3. I'll take a break on birds for a few days to work on other hand sewing projects. One of my empty Rodan and Fields boxes is a perfect fit for these finished blocks - so I'm stacking them there for now.
How many pairs of scissors does it take to do hand sewing? Oh my - I have FIVE pairs of scissors beside my chair! It's probably overkill, but I do use them all for different things. And hubby has 14 golf clubs in his bag - so whatever! Haha!
Rodan and Fields
A bit of news to share - I got my first 'paycheck' yesterday! I wasn't even expecting a paycheck, much less such a big one - especially since I've spent so little time on this endeavor. But it sure was nice!
I've been thinking. I had planned to use any money I make from R and F as my quilting play money. But I've changed my mind. I don't really need quilting play money. We are so very fortunate to have been able to retire without financial worries. I've decided to donate all my profits (after paying for my own skincare) to charity. And that makes me happy! St. Jude Hospital will receive my first donation - a worthy cause.
And so in summary:
-I'm now using premium skincare products
-I feel so much better about my skin!
-I get a big discount on my own products.
-I can list my own products as a tax deduction
-I'm helping others by sharing the R and F products.
-I'm able to donate my profits to wonderful charities.
Lots of wins here!
Okay, enough of that. I thought I'd spend a bit of time telling about some of the products. Today I want to share the Reverse regimen. I've had my hubby using Reverse for about a month so far. He had some age/sun spots that were more and more obvious. Though I'm not sharing his before/after yet, here's one to show the results you can achieve. I will say that I can already see DRASTIC improvement in hubby's skin.
