~WHEN TO SEW and WHEN NOT TO SEW~

We are back today working on my new Booth Space for the fourth straight day.  Pergola is up and painted and the doors are being hung in the window (and the shutters) later this afternoon...if all goes right I hope to be ready for business again by Saturday!  Whew!

I'm MORE than exhausted, but looking forward to everything being done and hopefully beautiful!

Had to share this clipping about sewing sent to me by my niece.  I laughed so hard and then did a HUGE EYE ROLL!  So happy for progress!!!  When I think of the times I've worked in an old scrubby t-shirt and my PJ bottoms with my hair ratted out with no lipstick I have to smile big!  If I think too long about WHAT I'm going to sew then I lose all focus and inspiration.  I certainly have warmed up my machine with a sink full of dirty dishes (or rather forgotten to hit the START button on my dishwasher!) and I'm not even sure I understand the thing about the chalk!  I just jump in with both feet hands swinging...that is my motto!

More pictures tomorrow...

LOL! If I had to wait until "my chores" were done before sewing, Rebecca, I'd never sew! I had to laugh at the husband line, too. After knowing me for almost 30 years, if he doesn't know what I look like without make-up, he's in for a rude surprise. : )

That write up on sewing was really funny!

I do everything around the house in my Pj's until I am ready to go somewhere! :) Then I shower and dress and do my hair. But in the mean time if somebody happens to drop by...then what they see is what they get! ha!

Can't wait to see your new booth all prettied up. :) I am sure it will be wonderful!!!

Love, Linda

maybe that's my problem....I don't dress the part of a seamstress! hmmmm, I just don't think that lipstick and chalk are going to help.

That is so funny! I was wondering what I was doing wrong on the days that nothing is going right (machine acting up, etc.). Now I know! I have to send this one to my sister!

Guess I won't it comes up as all rights reserved. Can't copy and paste the instructions. :( But it is so funny. Thanks for sharing. Guess all my sewing days would be awful as I don't follow any of their advise!

Tamara said...

Very cute!! And I agree with Kathy. If I had the house AND myself perfectly in order, I'd never get to anything else.

I'm very happy for you and your ongoing success. I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures.

Blessings,
Tamara
