Busy, busy and my little helperWednesday, March 03, 2010
Mostly due to having a garment featured in an Etsy newsletter (yay!) I ended up getting five orders on Saturday. Which means that all I am doing this week is working - from morning (day job) to night (Floremark). So yesterday I enlisted my eldest daughter as a pattern maker assistant. She helped me trace the patterns and prep them for grading, and did a wonderful job with it, even though she grunted a bit. I think I might enlist her services again in the future.
Anyhow my plans for making the bridal dress muslin, finishing the blouse and sewing up a spring collection is a little on the hold. Lets just say I got a lot on my plate right now! And on Friday I need to get up before 6 AM to pick up more fabric from a supplier for the sold out Olga blouse before I go to work.
Thank gawd for coffee. So yes, updates might be a little spare this week, (though I do plan to post about the walking foot that has finally arrived) . But next week I'll hopefully be back on my regular schedule!
