Oh, excellent! Well done, you. :) :)
Do you still have time to breathe? ;)
Breathe?? What's that?? It's purely osmosis now.....and when I sleep, of course...lol. Actually, things are kind of "slow" as far as my stuff goes. I'm working on the 3rd of 4 signature quilts for a family that is leaving and relocating to another part of the state (very close church family, parents are my SUnday School teachers), then there really isn't anything pressing waiting in the lineup. I want to finish the stained glass banners I was working on, but no time restrictions there, and of course get some clothing made for myself and the children, but again, no time restrictions.
So....once my coordinator gets back in touch with me about all the things this job entails, I will probably take over Maryland and Virginia...not too much to start with, but enough to ease me into it and give her some relief. Oh, and I'm supposed to make another cushion cover for a paying customer.
On a somewhat related note...we need to have a set of stairs built in the garage so that we can get up to the bonus room without having to use the extension ladder. When I spoke with one of the contractors yesterday to set up time for a quote, I mentioned that i completely understood the pressures of deadlines, etc. because of my sewing. His ears perked up and he asked, "Are you really a seamstress??!!??" Of course, I said yes and he mentioned that there were a lot of things that he needed either mended or made, but that his wife never did anything like that (not sure if he's still married or what)....so...that might be a good bargaining chip...I do some of his things that he needs sewn and he does our stairs...lol. I have to get working on my portfolio. Right now, the only thing apparel-wise that is within easy reach is the Elizabethan costume - still taking over the dressmakers' dummy!!
