Blue Flannel

It's only November 8th, and it is freezing.  We've only had one snowfall, but it didn't stick around.  It's just cold.  At least it's sunny.  For me, if it's going to be cold, I want at least the pleasure of seeing the pretty, white snow. I've been finding our little old house very chilly lately! 

Yesterday I went into the office to help out a bit.  It's been a month since I 'quit' and I'm not really feeling like I'm breaking my ties very well which is frustrating.  I fully believe in leaving every job on good terms, as you never want to burn your bridges, but part of why I was leaving was because I just did not enjoy the job anymore, and there was too much stress worrying about TWO small business.  I still don't feel like that stress is gone... I guess that will come in time.  I am an impatient person.

It is nice having the extra time to devote to Ohhh Lulu.  I spent this morning doing some administration type things that I've been avoiding... It feels good to have them off my check list.

I'm starting to have a routine for my days off.  I start early, normally waking up between 6 and 7, reply to emails, walk the dog, do a little housework, reply to more emails, cut, sew, package, walk to the post office, make dinner...  It's a pretty good routine, and I like the silence and spending my days alone.  It's funny, I know many people who would go nuts spending the days entirely alone, but I really like it.  I like the quiet, I like to be lost in my own thoughts with no one to interrupt me.  I have enough going on in my head at times for two people, so maybe that's why :)  I am still working long hours in front of the sewing machine, but I am feeling pretty grateful (though still very intimidated by the whole process).

And the Set together


  1. Owning and running your own business is hard and I give you such praise for sticking with it. You make amazing lingerie and the fact that you're busy shows it. I'm glad to hear that you've gotten into a routine. I think that with time, you'll get into a routine even more and feel more comfortable with your decision to 'quit.'

  3. I so love that fabric, Sarah! It's a gorgeous colour palette for the darker months and the flannel just adds to the awesomeness. I don't think I've seen flannel anything like it before actually. Love it. :-)
