One sundress done, and 5 more to go! Yes, I said five. There were only four, but when I delivered this one this morning another teacher saw it and wants one for her niece. I know, I said that I wouldn't do another one, but it's hard to say no. I have to get tougher. I think I'll practice, "No, I'm sorry I don't have time." "No, I'm sorry, but I have too many orders already." "No, I'm sorry, but I've already made 6 of these, and I don't want to make any more." "No, I only want to make one-of-a-kind special occasion clothing from now on." Maybe, if I can practice some pat answers like these it will be easier.
My friend seemed very happy with this one. I really like the fabrics and how they went together. I'm having fun coordinating all these different prints.
I'm going to have to get a prettier model for my bonnets. LOL! Smokey is such a cute mascot, though. He even plays "Rocky Top." For those of you who are not college football fans, that is the UN. of TN's theme song.
Back to work! Hummmmm...... I'm not sure I like the sound of sewing being work. I'm rethinking some of my ideas. I think I'm going to take a break from all of this when I get through with this batch of orders. Like I said above, I'm thinking I only want to do "Special Occasion" children's clothes. That was my original idea, anyway. I truly want to do one-of-a-kind things. I do not like doing the same thing over and over.
This afternoon is the May birthday party at the nursing home. They have cake and ice cream to honor all of the residents who have a birthday each month. I'm going to help Mother celebrate hers again.
My FIL is having knee replacement surgery on Tuesday. Please keep him and my MIL, who has alzheimers, in your prayers. Actually, please keep my DH and his siblings in your prayers, too. Thanks!
