Hello Again.

I have not used the blog in a while. But I have decided to return to blogging. I guess the blog is like my sewing momentum. I can get started and sew every day for days, months years and then suddenly I stop. No reason I just stop. So I guess I’m back again.

Okay so the winter coat that I want to make is chocolate brown and the lining is the same color. I have decided the quilt the lining with the batting that I use in making baby blankets. I am going to do the stitching by hand. I will be using gold metallic thread and I want the center of the stitching to be my name. In a graffiti style that I created years ago in a poster that was destroyed when my family home was involved in a fire.

After thinking about it I changed my mind and decided that it say “a mere saffron of the valley” the reason this works for me is because if I ever had a clothing store it would be called “Amere Saffron”.
I have not drawn the perfect lily for this sign so it stays in my head. But having the saying “a mere saffron of the valley” stitched into the lining of my coat is heading in the right direction. Maybe if I every get and embroidery machine I can make beautiful embroidered lining in all my coats and jackets. I am sure some designer line has this already but I can’t remember who it is at this point.

I am back to getting up at 5:00 in the morning and this is when I will do my sewing 5:30 to 6:30. 4 days a week. In the evening before going to bed I will plan out the morning work. 7:00 to 7:30 will be my exercise time. I will be showered and dressed by 8:30 and ready to walk out the door. On the days when I am not working on my sewing projects I will be preparing dinner for 2 days and cleaning.

I am also back to sketching again. I am by no means an artist but this does relax me and hopefully will enable me to sleep before 2:00 am.

My little designer has been busy designing clothes so I will have her in my sewing studio on Sunday afternoons. I will be busy creating these for her and helping her to learn to sew them for herself.

That’s it for now. Remember to express yourself creatively everyday!

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…

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…
Sew Perfect 4 Every Body Goals vs Dreams A conversation over Tea Hello , If you read this blog at all you know it has been almost a year since I have posted anything.
Like so many things with me a lot of unfinished objects...projects...business. I keep putting off the things in my life that I love .  I thought that i was trying hard to stop the trait but I
come to realize that is not so. I am my biggest obstacle. What is really bad is when I get the courage to
share something that i really want to do if that person makes the slightest  discouraging comment,
I am like what am i thinking. WHY DO I DO THAT! I am not really sure why that is.   Recently my husband had a problem with is knee it was swollen and painful.
 We go to the urgent care and then to the Emergency room next thing I know he is admitted to the hospital
and needs surgery to clean out an septic infection.  He would need to be 6 weeks off work.
He was top on my mind of course but the bills were like a animal crouching to …
