Long, Productive Day.

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Ok, I am finally winding down for the day. I think I sewed for 12 hours straight, with breaks here and there to take Oliver out for pee-breaks. When I have my sewing marathon, little Oliver always perches himself on the back of the couch and watches, snoring and snorting and sneezing and making weird pug noises. Gosh I love that dog!

I finished off two custom orders, both bra and panties sets. The lace ruffle one is my favourite. I just love frothy, gathered lace! The sad part of today though is...

I am completely out of the Swiss dot for the black set, and only have enough floral fabric for one last pair of ruffled lace panties... and hopefully I can source the same lace again because I used all of it today too!

In better news, my bridesmaids dresses arrived today! We will pick them up on Wednesday and I will do any alterations that the girls might need. I really hope my dress comes in soon, as I would like to start on alterations - which I will pay an actual alterations seamstress to do!

I have one more week at my job before I start my new PR position. I am looking forward to a Monday to Friday 9-5 job again, with no worry about overtime. It will be so nice to be able to come home, and have time to cook dinner. No more 11 hour days!

Lastly, I think Dan and I are going to buy a new car. I've never spoken about our car before... but it has a lot of character, being a mechanics car. All of the electronic devices hang by wires out of the doors (auto-locks and windows, etc), the back doors have no interior handles because we had to put them on the front, when they broke, the heat is operated by reaching underneath the passenger side dash... Yep, it's got a lot of character! Here's hoping we can get this new car before summer road trip season, which will start with a drive to Quebec in June.

  4. wish I had a productive day. I babysat my sister's new pug puppy you can check her out here:

    She didn't want to watch she wanted to be held and played with and how could I say no!
