Back to work.

I have not finish my winter coat as a result I have been going without a coat. Which is much easier than I thought. My car is parked in the garage and I hubby lets me out at the front door to my JOB.

But since it has started snowing, the need for the coat has arisen again because a fleece is not enough when cleaning the driveway.

My Sewing studio has been cleaned bare but not set up to workable conditions. And the coat that I was working on is somewhere in the unorganized closet. I have somethings that need to be finish in the space to make it completely workable.

The fabric which has been stuffed into the wardrobe and taped closed has to be organized and put on storage shelving. I really do not want to store the fabric in plastic bins out of sight means I need more fabric. I need to see the fabric and inspired to create.

I have to then get rid of the wardrobe that the fabric is stored in. My sewing table has to double as a cutting table which will be a challenge because the sewing table height is at least 25 inches high and the cutting table i need to be at least 30 t0 35 inches high big difference.

Since the sewing room was also to be a guest room I have to have space for a futon or day bed to be in the room.

I need to give my home business a real attempt and my sewing room is key to all of this taking place. Plus I need to step up my clothing style and I have always done this by making the clothes myself. Lots to get done. So its time to get back to work.

i have an idea actually...

move your computer to your living room--you have the space. get rid of the wardrobe and in its space build an L shaped sewing table and cutting table. if you do it right you can build a swing out for the sewing machine to sit on to sew that folds (or swings) under the cutting table when not in use--thuse you still have room for the futon--though an even better idea is to get an Aerobed...

I can see this in my head, but may need to draw it out for you to make sense :)

I thought about moving the computer to the living room and I really like the idea of the Aerobed!

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.…

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…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
