Wasting time Sleeping

How many hours are there in a day? I think I am wasting too many sleeping. I cannot get a free moment.

I have been running back and forth to the seniors building that my Aunt live in because I have several customers there.

Making adjustment for skirt that are too long, too loose, occasionally too tight. The problem is when the are awake I am at work and when I am finish with work they are getting ready for bed. So pickup and delivery are usually on Saturday.

Right now the intercom system that lets you into the building is not working properly. I attempted to contact my customer in the usual fashion by dialing her apartment number on the touch pad and it did not even ring. The display just said try again. Which I did and the display said “ Try Again”. So I called my customer on my cell phone to tell her that I was at the front door but the intercom system is not working. She however is hard of hearing and heard that I was at the front door and began pushing the button on her phone that will open the door. This did not work because I was on my CELL PHONE! After several attempts to get her to understand that the door was not opening someone who was in the building and walking through the lobby opened the door for me. And just as the elevator was opening I saw her standing their barefoot and in her robe. She took the clothes and said she will try them on at different call and call me if anything is wrong and starting fussing and cussing about the door!

My cousin and I recently got a contract with a couple who is getting married to supply their wedding flowers! They want bouquets, corsages, buttoners, and centerpieces. Neither of them like flowers but they like the demonstration we did when we presented them with flowers so they put a deposit on the order. However they still did not give a final number of flowers needed but they are aware that more flowers higher the cost. I emailed them an deadline of Friday!

Now I have found out about Pittsburgh Fashion Week Sept 27 ~ Oct 3. So I am back to restless night because I have to get some purses completed for our vendor table on October 1, 2010 however no one has truly committed themselves to paying 150.00 for the vendor table and are more interested in getting tickets to see the fashion shows! This present challenges for me because suddenly I am to be the contact person because I found the people on facebook who are the minds behind the event! Just because they accepted my friendship request does not mean I have an in to all the events!

I really want to go home and get some work completed and my hubby has decided that we need to return to the business meeting for Primerica. The only way I can salvage the night in terms of getting some work done is by going to the Joann’s in North Hills to get some closures for the purses.

I put in 8 hours at work and if you count commuting back and forth more like 9 to 10 hours. I would love to work for 5 hours on sewing and creating the purses but there are the alterations that need to be done (after this week I will not be taking in new work until after the fashion show ) then there are wedding flowers that need to be done by October 20th because the Wedding is November 5, 2010. I like to have them completed and just waiting because then there is no messing up.

I guess I just have to give up what little sleep I do get because I cannot get more than 24 hours in a day.

Oh Yes I have a fall/winter list for me to make for me! Yep I will be giving up sleeping!

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.  
DK I think she will be working on dresses.    I could just scream with exci…

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!  

Our Mentors were working on sewing project while helping others ! 


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…
