There's never been an official contest, but I think that I have the coolest fans. (I acknowledge I may be just a smidgen biased.) That's why I love to take a few moments each month to showcase the talent of someone who caught my attention on Instagram. This month I'm bragging about Piper (@esthersfabrics).
What is your hidden talent?
My hidden talent is a pretty good one. I can wink without squinting my other eye. It's like I'm just closing one eye and the other one doesn't even twitch. My husband hates it, totally creeps him out so of course I do it to him constantly. lol!
What is the coolest (or weirdest) thing you've ever done?
For a super uncool chic, I've done some pretty cool things. I used to be a snowboard instructor, I got to drive 2 different race cars around a race car track in Vegas (it's a company set up to let folks do it so it wasn't an actual race or anything quite THAT cool), saved my husband's life twice (he says 3 times but I think that one time doesn't count ) lol!! But the coolest thing ever so far is I bought a fabric store in the town where I live.
The song that's currently in your head?
Blondie, Heart of Glass
The book you share with all your friends?
It's a weird one that I'm not even sure I like. I've read it 3 times to try and decide...still unsure but it's called Egalia's Daughters. I TRY and make everyone read it but I think, so far, there are no takers. lol! But the one I DO for sure like that I share with others is All The Light We Cannot See.. Amazing
What superlative would you give yourself?
For sure I am Most Likely to become "that weird lady down the street with all the dogs."
What embroidery project are you most proud of?
The embroidery project I am most proud of isn't one that I did at all. I'm still dabbling and learning. I just learned how to consistently do a french knot and THAT is MY most proud thing right now. But I have a friend and sis-in-law who embroider a lot and they send me embroidered lovelies often. I put them all up on the wall behind my sewing machine and I see them every day. I love them and they always put a smile on my face.
