Wednesday, Plowing through

 I am proud of me. Just plowing through wedding dresses as fast as I can make myself.  The key here is make.....

Four more to go and I think I can do it. We will see.

Having a hard time with motivation, but I am working on it. The motivation that is.

I also have to pay bills today and I don't want to.  Oh, Kim you need a nap.

Not really, I need to go cut the under skirt on a wedding dress and hem it and then place the horsehair braid. And we all know how much I love horsehair braid. 

Then you need to call client and start on the next dress.  You can do this.  

I bet you can.  (This is my inner cheerleader voice)

Anyway, I do believe there are 4 more wedding dresses to get done before I leave next week.   

Then I will come back with Sissie and all my problems will be over.  *Snort*

Okay I am alive, I am sewing. I am not having as much fun as I would like.



  1. You got this! Go Kim - go Kim. Cheers!

  2. You are like the little train that could. I think you can, I think you can, I think you can!

  3. A strange question for you….could you just decide not to do wedding dresses if they drive you mad? Or little person clothes? Or does it vary, some dresses are fun, others a nightmare? I realize work is money, but you have more work than time it seems. Hilogene in Az.

    1. My thoughts also... unless she's like my Mother and does better under tons of pressure

  4. Kim, you are an inspiration. You got this!

  5. You are doing well Kim ... & you are so right - we just need to keep telling ourselves that we can do this & try & shut the negative-nelly voice up that's constantly in our heads (!!!) You can do this Kim 😉

  6. Your work is hard because you can't go home from work and you have no union to protect you.

  7. Go, girl, go. You can definitely do this. Hopefully you can get some rest when you are gone.

    God bless.

  8. One stitch at a time. Thinking of you, Kim!

  9. I am happy to know that I am not the only one who talks to myself to readjust my attitude lol

  10. I give myself pep talks all the time, but particularly when I'm working out. "You've got this." "I know you can do this" and the like. I'm not sure if it works or not, but I keep doing it! (Hawaii Planner)

  11. I'm proud of you too, hang in there.

  12. Rah Rah Rah! You go girl. I'm guessing you cannot imagine yourself not doing seamstress work-you might go crazy?????? It keeps you focused?

    You are definitely EARNING that vaca in sew many ways ;-)

  13. I lost my partner about 2 1/2 years ago from a sudden heart attack. Three days after he passed my dad passed away as well. I understand so well the fight to get motivated to do things after losing your husband. I am only now getting some motivation back so I feel for you. I just wanted to say are doing well to push yourself to do the work you need to done.
