Saturday, No good deed

    Goes unpunished.  So the Indian Regalia gets picked up and she brings me another dress to do. I knew I was in trouble when I only used 1/2 the white hide she had brought me. After I get this one done she wants me to replace the hide on another ceremonial dress that was done years ago.  Bother.  I can see this growing into the ribbon shirt fiasco I lived through years ago.  Once the word gets out that I can do this I will get too much of this kind of work.  I am probably just borrowing trouble and should not worry about it.  I won't even try to get this done until after the wedding.
Isn't the bead work stunning on this dress?  It was the client's grandmothers.  It is an honor to be trusted with such a beautiful garment.





     I was able o get a good load of beans picked yesterday while the littles played in the back yard.  The shop had many customers in and out  yesterday.  I have a huge pile of just smaller items to kick through on Monday before I start on wedding dresses.

     I am going to get the house rally cleaned this weekend and also the ironing caught up.  I have the jr bridesmaid coming over for a fitting and I need to hurry and hem another dress I forgot about that was due out Monday morning.  Ugh!

     Let's see?  It is almost 12:30, can I get the family room vacuumed and the ironing set up before 1 p.m.  On you mark get set go!

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

  1. That dress is beautiful. I haven't accomplished much yet today. Ran a few errands, washing all bedding/sheets, helped the kids pack for camp. Finishing a batch of brownies for Nick to take to a swimming party.

    1. You are so right and I have been turning down work this last week and refusing to take any projects until after the wedding. It is hard for me to say no.

  3. That is a beautiful dress and an honor to be allowed to work on it. I know you are well-paid for that kind of work. Maybe a transition to this kind of work would pay off the house sooner.

  4. What a beautiful dress, Kim. And yes I agree it's an honor to be trusted with such a wonderful piece. I cleaned up my kitchen really well this weekend, it feels so good to get all that done, and I hope you get yours (cleaning and ironing) all done up this weekend too. Good job on the beans. :)

  5. That is gorgeous and you are fortunate that your skill set is needed and wanted. That being said, I am so glad I am not talented enough for anyone to ever need me for such a trying job. There are perks to being a dumb ass after all!
