Who am I to complain that business is going well? I've been hoping to find a niche and get orders and boy, am I ever!! I work for a few hours every night, appliquing little birthday shirts, cutting and sewing out letters, digging through my scraps to find just the right combination of prints and colors. I am not a speedy sewer. I like to make sure everything looks "just right" and tend to move a bit slower when I sew. In addition to that I am interrupted every 3 minutes by my five-year old with requests for food and drink (maybe I need to teach him how to run the foot pedel on the sewing machine? hmmmm...) Weekends in the past were spent in the "studio" but are now spent outside, chatting with the neighbor and playing soccer with the boys.
In any case, my calendar is jam-packed and my turnaround is stretching a bit. Though model samples are running behind my orders are still going out on time, I stay up past midnight to make sure of that! So...yawn...things are good, getting things done, staying busy, trying to have a life outside the studio and still keep the business going at the same pace is getting more challenging though.
