I sewed very hard yesterday and I need to do so today. Daughter #1 had to take an entrance exam to pass out of some specific classes, and daughter #2 had to drive to a small town about 40 miles away to do free dental sealants for low income children. Both were in the shop yesterday with woeful attitudes. One because of the test and the other one because of the drive(on the high prairie with bad roads) Both survived can you believe that?
Out My Window:
It is sunny but cold today. Spring is trying so hard but flowers are slow to bloom. I was changing the water on the chicks and I found Rusifee lurking around my every move. Rusifee is our 7 toed (yes 7) black and white long hair cat. Imagine Sylvester with huge feet. He is very interested. When the babies get big enough he will leave them alone.(maybe)
I have had so many mom's and girls bring in strapless gowns and they want them made into a modest dress. Well you can't add sleeves to a strapless dress. You can add straps. Also some times the backs are out or they are very low cut and I am supposed to wave a magic wand and fix all of this. Don't buy an immodest dress if you want a modest one! I am not a miracle worker. Then they treat me like I am some sacrilegious harpy. I will not let a dress go out of this shop that is not tastefully altered. My reputation is based on my ability to make thinks look nice. Big old puffy straps on a gorgeous dress just look stupid. I make a great deal of money at this time of year, but boy do I have to bite my tongue. I have a lunch date with the TV station to promote Sleeping Beauty, several fittings today, and a photo shoot tonight on top of everything else. I really just want to go to bed!
Do you ever have days like this?
Have a great and productive day!
