Halfway through September. Where did it go? Will I be able to get everything done that I need to in the next month? Why did I waste all that time in July and August? (I ask that question every Sept=Oct. Will I ever learn to take advantage of the slow times?)
Working on a special order. The client gave me carte blanche. In some ways that is harder than if a client gives me very specific instructions. But once I got over my insecurities and dove in, I've enjoyed this project. Picked one of my favorite palettes - pinks and browns - a good mix of summer and fall. Finished this morning. I hope the client likes it. I'm pretty secure in the knowledge that the little girls will look great!!!
Still working on the colonial dress for my daughter. Had a second fitting last Sat. Boo hoo, the bodice is still all wrong. I'm trashing it and starting anew. Why is it, when something starts wrong, it almost always is a disaster the entire way? This has been a lesson in humility. I thought I knew how to sew. Now I know with certainty I have much to learn. (I think it's a life lesson for me. Back up one step, listen and watch, Learning never stops.)
