Monday went by really fast... I walked down to the Post Office first thing yesterday morning, and brought Oliver along with me.  Normally, it takes me about 10 minutes to get down there.  Yesterday, it took 20.  Oliver sniffed everything.  And then of course, we had to stop and sit on a bench for a while because he was tired... so it ended up being quite the adventure.

When I came back, I got to work sewing that dress for the wedding.  I scored some aubergine coloured jersey for $1.80 on the weekend, and it turned out awesome! I can't wait to show you some pictures.  In fact, I want to make a second dress, I like it so much.

I finished it up around lunch time, ate some soup, then sat in my studio for an hour staring at my sewing machine.  After an hour had passed I realized I hadn't given myself a day off in about 3 weeks, so I closed my lap top, shut off my machines, turned off the lights, and headed out for a walk.  I did a little shopping, them came home and napped until Dan came home.  It was nice to have an improptu day off.  I am still not feeling very well, so it was really very needed.

Today I will work on cutting out orders, which always takes me much longer than it should because I get distracted in the process.  However, I am getting more and more caught up, and more and more efficient... but still easily distractable!  

I am really looking forward to the wedding that is coming up.  I have even booked a hair appointment that morning and am getting my highlights touched up this weekend.  It is really fun to get dressed up... I don't get the opportunity very often.

In closing, I wanted to share this photo that I love, of Emily from Emilystudios.com, modeling a new blue floral & lace set that I have just listed on etsy.


  1. A good thing about being self-employed. You can take a day of. I hope you enjoyed it. Taking some time of is really important when working by yourself. I tend to forget it...
    The set is beautiful!

  2. Oooh, that set is gorgeous! Hope you have a great time at the wedding!

  3. I came across your Etsy and I'm thinking of buying some patterns! I've always thought of making lingerie and I was just wondering how did you learn? Did you study it at college or just pick it up yourself :)?

    1. I went to school for Fashion Design, but picked up lingerie on my own afterwards.

  4. I just fall in love with this set. It is absolutely beautiful!
