Thursday, sewing, sewing...

     What makes me happy? Many, many Bridal calls!  as long as we don't repeat Bridzilla...

     I am inundated with Bridal calls and it is great.  I was able to get two bridesmaids dresses done yesterday and hope to get two others and a huge pile of alterations done today.  My first bride was here at 8:30 this morning with 2 more calls before she came!  Nuts I tell you.  I feel so blessed.

     I received the credit card bill for the studio and it looks like I may have to for the first time all year break my goal of no added debt.  I do have enough in savings to cover the card but that would empty my account for the summer and I would just go into debt to get through.  I will be diligent and see what I can do.  One day at a time.  Might have to play catch up in August.  I am not going to let myself get discouraged as I have so much work coming in and I am just going to have to stand on faith that I can do this.

     I still need $200.00  before this weekend so I had better get busy.

     Out My Window:  Very nice outside, not too hot.  Still have some planting to do, but I swear I will finish that tonight!

Have a great and productive day!



  1. Hello! I have been following your blog for a few months now... I hope that you will be able to manage the studio accounts without going into debt! My question is whether you really make money with the studio. You do so much work on the costumes yourself and have parents paying late... At the end of the day, with all that you do there, does your hourly wage justify the business? If not, should you consider raising your rates? Are you charging enough for all the sewing you do on the costumes? When was the last time you raised rates for your sewing business? I hope all this work is paying off! Good luck.

  2. I'm glad the Bridzilla finally left you alone! And I'm glad you have plenty of work to do right now!

  3. Wow that's A LOT of sewing! Good luck on all of your sewing projects!
