How is it the song goes?....'the lunatics are taking over the asylum' :-) :-) :-)
Well that's a little how I'm feeling this morning. I really do wish my customers would speak to each other and space out my work load. At the end of yesterday I had piles of customers clothes everywhere waiting to be labelled and hung up on my 'to do' rail. They had all come at once and I hadn't had time to hang them up between customers!
My 'to do' rail was already pretty full from the 4 customers that had been in the morning but....
.....the back of my chair was piled high with trousers, jumpers and jackets and.....
....I could hardly see my ironing board for the really huge bedspread that I have to alter.
Jo has managed to pick me up some gorgeous coffee coloured material for my next batch of dollies.....but of course these will have to wait for now. I am doing my best to make them in different skin tones because I feel this important.
I've even had a visit from the Gruffalo who needed the end of his tail and a horn stitching back on.....
..... and a little devil who needed a stitch or two in one of his horns.
In between sewing jobs and in my spare time I'm also sewing beads on Michelle's wedding veil...it has 20 scallops round the edge and in each one I have put a combination of 6 beads like these with a crystal pear drop bead in the middle. Now all I have to do is sew the other 200 crystal beads all round :-) :-) :-)
So, you will guess where I will be today. Thank you for dropping in on me and for leaving your lovely comments. I really do appreciate them. I will do my best to drop in on as many of you as I can during my coffee breaks but if you don't get a visit from me this week please forgive me.
