It's really going well. I did run into some issues with one of the patterns I bought. It just didn't look the way I wanted it to look. It's okay, but I think I'm going to combine parts of one pattern with parts of another to come out with an apron I really like. This first one is a longer apron that uses a "D" ring for the neck strap. I like that style, but didn't like working with this pattern.
My first craft show/vendor apron will be done tonight and it is so cute. I used that watermelon fabric I showed you last weekend.
There are just so many things I want to do right now, but no where close to the amount of time I need to do them all. I really need to get my head out of the "hurry up" mode so I can relax and really enjoy what I'm doing. I got like this before and it really takes the fun out of my business.
I love this little peachy apron. The pattern was wonderful and I love the look. It's a tie neck and little shorter style.
So, starting today....I am going to slow down a bit. There really is no reason to rush to get these things in my shop. When they get there....they get there. Right? I think it is just the excitement that takes over when I find something I really enjoy making, and sewing seems to be my thing right now. Who knows what it will be next month. I can't seem to do any one thing for very long as you can tell my looking at MyOtherShop.
This sunflower one is the same pattern as the peachy one. It's so bright and sunny! If I wore an apron, this would be mine!!
I am just having so much fun with all of this. If you create and sell your work, do you love it so much that it's all you want to do, or do you follow a schedule of some sort? Me, I get home and say hi to Irv and I can't wait to get started. Maybe when I try to slow down today....I'll be able to sit for a couple of minutes to chat about our days before I run off to the workshop....but probably not. I can hear it calling my name before I even pull in the driveway! "Kathy, Kathy, get in here quick. Look how much fun we are going to have tonight. See all the pretty colors and prints. Hurry up, get in here and let's play!!!"
HAHA! Have a great day everyone!
