Boring life.

Yesterday I should have gotten my parking pass for the new location. But I forgot! So I decided that I will make a special trip to get it today. The line was extremely long yesterday so today should be better.

I planned to be there at 8:00am but I got up late. I did make it there a little after 9:00am.
I got the permit ,caught the bus home, had the RX for Provera filled made it back home and then waited for the repair guy come to fix the bathroom sink.

I had prepped the sewing studio to finish up some the repair jobs that I had started but I know I do not actually start sewing until after 8:00pm. That is the assigned time each day. Some days it happens some days it does not. Today I am under contract to finish the dress pants because that will put $10.00 in my pocket. My customer needs them Sunday.

I finally did find the right kind of terry cloth to use for the back of the bibs. When I went to the fabric store I was discouraged by the roughness of the terry cloth fabric. So I was very happy when I found the terry cloth knit fabric. It much softer and I can see it being use to wipe a baby face and not the regular stuff. So I pre washed that fabric last night so when I am finish with the pants I can finish the baby bids that I have promised.

I received samples of my fabric designs, I love them but not greatly happy with them. I need to work on working with Paint.net. I also have been searching for 2 days for the design that I had created 3 years ago. I have contact several screen printer in the area and they were all out of my price range and I would have had to order by the bolt of fabric not the yard. I am trying to recreate the image but its foggy in my mind. It was a cartoon drawing of me. I loved it and stitched it on to a white canvas bag that I made which I also cannot find. I have too much junk. But I am sure to find it this weekend not sure why this weekend would be any better than any other but hope spring eternal.

Tomorrow pictures.

S Sew Together Session  May 27, 28!
It's great when you are with friends of like mind who love the same things you do.  Well this weekend time to capitalize on that idea.
Time to Sew Together!!
I sent out the invites actually it was a series of text and phone calls and created a buzz for myself that is very uplifting!  I am so excited. 
The way I have envision this;  everyone will come over about 6 to 7 people and bring what ever project they are working on and sew in the same room together.  I just love this idea!   
JN is going to make a apron for her make up job.  She was asked to do the make for the  brothers who will be on screen at our Regional Convention!  I am so happy for her.   AA will be making curtains she is getting things ready  for her redecorating month. She said for us not to look for her in June because that is the time she set aside to redecorate her house and curtains are a big part of it.

The Sewing Machine were in place and supplies are available just waiting for the people to arrive. 

I am very happy to have ventured out of my comfort zone it was very empowering to accomplish this!

Some who are learning were happy and frustrated.  Lining the top of the dress can be a challenge but she conquered it! 

I cannot wait to see the finish projects of all those who took advantage of the event to start a project.  

First time at a sewing machine and so eager to see the finish result!

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…
