Tuesday, Nice day

     It was a nice Monday and although the shop was busy I felt like I was able to use my time wisely.  I did get a wedding dress done that was really hard and got another ready for a fitting.  I have called her and she is to call me back with a time.  I also have another wedding dress on the ironing board  that I will get ready for a fitting today.  But the pile is growing again and I am not counting dresses and there are a ton of them.  Just since yesterday I have 4 pairs of pants and two other jobs to complete.  It just never ends.

     SO today I will be working on mother of the bride and bridesmaid dresses.  I am hoping to get at least 5 or 6 knocked out along with the bridal dress that is on my ironing board.  The littles are coming tomorrow so I will not sew during the day.  Maybe I will get a little done in the evening.

     Daughter and I were able to walk the bridges last night and it was so nice.  We had a long chat and just enjoyed the warm sun and each other.  D#3 continues to call and tell us about her husband and his color glasses.  She says it is so much fun to have him tell her what he is seeing for the first time.

     My laundry is behind with all the wedding linens, but hubs cleaned out the slop sink so I have no excuse not to start soaking things.  Other than my own laziness.

     Daughter #2 also took all the wedding stuff as she has two family weddings on her husbands side this next year.  All I have left to sell are the linens.  It is so nice to get all that stuff out of the back hallway where it has been for over 6 months.  I also was able to get all the silver back up on the wall in the dining room.  Yippee!  I think other than the washing  of the borrowed linens the wedding is put to bed.  That is a cause to celebrate right there.

     Still trying to get a hold of Slugs, she is not answering.

     Well I need to get to get to work even though I don't really want to.

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



  1. Busy gal. I'm on vacation this week. Recharging my batteries. I did some reading for my class. The weather is gorgeous outdoors, but I feel like just staying inside. I've gotten a lot of sun over the weekend. Just need to rest.

    1. Good for you, if anyone needs a break it is you.

  2. I know it's a lot of work for you, but I am just amazed at how much business you have coming in. I envy your mother/daughter talks. My mom has been gone for three years now, and my boys are hundreds of miles away, and not good small-talkers.

    1. I am one of two sewing places in an area of about 100,000. Although all the towns are small there are several of them within 28 miles of each other. Also the only one who does Bridal and military. I miss my mom well the mom before she got sick.

  3. Well done you!
    I do not have a daughter to have any Mother daughter talks with, but I have the best daughters in law in the world and love talking with each of them it is so much better than the monosyllabic small talk I get from the sons.

  4. Awesome work, plugging away at the nonstop incoming work.
