It was a good day for machine quilting - I finished quilting all the blocks in Autumn Garden. Now I just have to quilt the sashings. I'm nearing another finish!
Look what landed in my email this week. This beautiful quilt was made by Jean Manning in Australia using Liberty fabrics. Here's what she said:
It's a present for a friend who has no children and no animals‼️some of the Liberty fabrics are so small that I had to join some together to make the hexagon. The fabric was bought when I was working and "rich " as I really enjoy smocking as well as patchwork.
It's gorgeous, isn't it! Those Liberty fabrics shine!
And here's one of the smocked dresses she's made - quite the talent! Thanks for sharing, Jean!
Rodan and Fields
I haven't done a Rodan and Fields post in quite some time, so let's talk about it today. I have a Facebook friend who is looking for a bit of side income this summer and is looking for suggestions. I said that R+F would be good choice. Her reply, "Direct Sales is not my cup of tea." I decided not to reply on Facebook.
What I wanted to say was:
That's what I USED to think, too. But I opened up my mind to it because of the quality of the products and what they've done to improve my skin. I don't feel like a salesperson with R and F. The products sell themselves - how can you argue with being the NUMBER 1 skincare line in the country? All I have to do is post to Facebook every so often. And I carry samples in my purse for when people (sometimes strangers) comment about my nice skin. And yes, people do notice my skin now! No parties, no inventory, no worries.
And the even better news is that today is the last day to take advantage of a super duper special for new consultants - anyone who signs on today will receive 40 free mini facial samples to start their business - that's a $200 value! Wish I'd had that when I started...
So what's on tap today? We're making a quick trip to the lake to set things up for Daughter 2 and SIL2's anniversary trip there. Can you believe it's been almost a year since the wedding? I can't! I'll take along my Rowdy Flat Library Quilt and so some appliqué in the car.
Wishing you a happy day!
