Tuesday, Lots to do!

     I did not get any sewing done yesterday except to help an older lady in our church to put together a skirt.  It still needs altered a bit and I will try and get to that later today.  But first I want to get a few things done in the shop to make some money, as that is why I sew.  After I meet a quota and get somethings done I will finish up her skirt, leaving the hand work to her.

     Thanks for all the nice comments about the yard.  It is beautiful but also way too large and so much work.  I am blessed to love yard work, my only frustration is the time to get out there.

     I have been having so much fun at night with girlfriends and sister and this is the last night they will be here.  I have to teach a lesson at another ward tonight so I will go and say my goodbyes after.  I will miss them.  My house has suffered and projects that need to be done have been neglected, but who cares?  I have enjoyed myself and the dirty ring in the bathroom sink can stay for a few more days.

     Sometimes I dread going into the shop with all the hanging garments and all the piles.  It overwhelms me and I want to run.  I just say to myself.  Pick up one thing and do it.  When that is complete I say pick up another thing and do it.  Sometimes I make a pile of things and just work through them. This keeps me motivated and on task as I am very easy to distract.

     Today I will:

1. make four pairs of pants into  shorts (save the denim legs for quilts)
2. shorten a bridesmaid dress
3. finish a bridesmaid alteration hand work
4. replace a couple of zippers
5. place lace on a wedding dress for approval
6. get some curtains hemmed for my girlfriends and a few alterations done for them
7.alter a few items
8.get lesson ready for tonight
     I swear I have not cooked for at least 5 days so I should get something out for dinner.  Hubs has been surviving on what ever he can scrounge up.  Bad wife that I am.

     Well I am off to get my list done to the best of my ability.  Ugh....

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.




  1. Life is a balance. I'm glad you're budgeting time to spend with your friends.

    1. It is hard for me as I am a workaholic, but I am trying.

  2. I think you are pretty amazing. You say you only helped a lady with skirt alterations. To me, that would be quite an accomplishment. lol

    1. Well it was obvious that this woman could sew at one time and she still did a pretty good job, but she was 77 and pushing the limit for sight. I enjoyed my time with her.

  3. It looks like you got a lot done!
