We may be closing a chapter and saying Goodbye-Sayonara to this beauty. 😿 We listed him on Airstream Classifieds yesterday and had a bite that lead to a deposit within an hour. This will only be a pause in our RV adventure. At this time we find ourselves once more better suited to van-life. 🚐 So, let the camper-van hunt begin! If you’re interested in a #davidwinick #airstreambambi , DM me and I’ll put you on the waiting list if this deal falls thru. #airstreamlife #liveriveted
Can’t wait to try these out. I’ve been using plastic dryer balls wrapped in worn out Marino wool socks for years. Not the best but I’m tragically sensitive to lanolin. I’ve put off trying these because I’m afraid they may leave me in welts but I’m tired of the static! Here’s 🙏🏼 that I don’t break out. #ecoligy #wooldryerballs Thanks for the discount @pjneal1259
I made some goodies for a drawing I am hosting at work. Winners choice...$5 gift card, #noodleheadpatterns pouch or #fabricmutt #pixiebasket ... #cottonandsteel #carolynfriedlanderfabrics
He’s off to ride the Blue Ridge Pkwy and I’m off to look for red and orange quilt back friendly fabrics. Two of our must-do Asheville activities. #shoppingforfabric #quilting #asheville #blueridgeparkway
The best kept Beauty secret in the CSRA is out! I had the opportunity to shoot a 2 minute spot on @thedishon6 and share that the Belk at #MullinsColony in Evans, GA has the only #BobbiBrown counter in the area! Anna was so sweet and she was even wearing BB Highlighting Powder! My spot airs this Friday, June 28th and July 19th at 12:30pm on WJBF Channel 6 in the CSCA. #thedish #thedishon6 #evansbelk #bobbibrownevans @bobbibrown.evans
This is why EV, our grand fur baby, loves to visit. #visitinggrandmaandgrandpa #wgsd #peanutbutter
Orphan Block Project 2 is on the wall. I finished and donated the first one I made with pink round robin blocks. No finished photo🤦🏻‍♀️ but it was pretty similar to this layout. I’m building this one in a different order just to keep the process fresh. #orphanblock #quilting #stashbusting #designwall
It only took 15 years but I can finally get up close sleeper shots of Cooper. He’s super fit  and healthy for his age but he’s lost almost all of his hearing. It took two tries to get this shot and my phone makes that annoying camera sound. How do I get that to go away!!! #jrt #sleepingdog #jackrussellterrier #olddogs
I have a box full of blocks from 3 years of Round Robin sessions with The #augustamodernquiltguild so I pulled the 8 pinkish bocks for my next project. I had to make a 9th Block to balance it out and for that I pulled from my scraps. Since I’m now working a full time job and have less time to spend in my sewing studio I’ve dedicated 2019 as a year to finishing projects and reduce UFO boxes. No fresh starts for 2019! I also want to donate at least 4 quilts to the Lydia Project. This will be the second donation quilt. 😸 Once I have the donation quilts under my belt I will work on a project for me!
Revisiting the #crosscutquilt project that I started in late 2016. I signed a UFO finish contract at the #augustaMQG meeting this month. I have to finish this or donate my $10 contract fee. It’s a win-win scenario. It feels good to be able to spend time with my fabric and machines again. 😸 I’ve added two rows to my slab and I also decided to sprinkle it with solid background squares to bring it up to a nice lap size.
Intro & 3 random facts...1) I recently stepped into the wayback machine and picked up where I left off 30 years ago...I’m back behind a cosmetics counter after being a SAHM and home school teacher for 22 years and then working with my husband for 8 years. I’m a Bobbi Brown Counter Manager and I’m having a blast.💄 2) My favorite food is watermelon and I will practically live on it in the summer. 🍉 3) My husband hates my car but I’ve been driving it since 2007 and I have no plans to get one that will win his approval. He complains that it’s too loud and his hips and torso are too wide for the seat bolsters. Plus, he gets tired of the manual. I’m still in ❤️ with my cute little 🐇 GTI. 🚗 #igquiltfest
So, I start a new thing next week...💄 You will find me behind the Bobbi Brown Counter at the Belk at Mullins Crossing in Evans, GA. Come see me if you are in the area and we can play with some color! 👁👄 #bobbibrown #evansga #belkevans #bobbibrownevansga #mullinscrossing #augustagamakeup
