Acorns, Squirrels and welcome Fall!

Acorns, Squirrels and welcome Fall!

 

I have been lying in bed at night for the last few weeks dreaming about finding the time to blog.  If you think that is odd, you are probably right.  To my defense, I cannot remember a time in the last 18 years where I did not write at least once a month.  This year I skipped several months.  Shame on me.  I realize that it is no fun to blog about nothing, which is the most likely reason I have not attempted to waste your time.  So I decided to look back at older blog posts, and realized that I did not have to create something new at the sewing machine to update this journal.  Instead, I decided to just let you know that I still exist, and I am still working, and.......well......here is what is new.

First of all, I am a mom and my oldest is a senior this year.  Can you believe it?  It has been a very busy year.  College applications, SAT's, driver's license, yada yada yada........and when you add COVID to the mix, I think we are all somewhat tired.  I fall into bed at night and wonder when things are going to just calm down.  I cannot believe I am saying it, but life was so much easier with two toddlers.  Manageable.  LOL.  Well maybe not always.

In spite of all this, I am actually relieved that I can make the time for my kids right now.  My weekends used to be filled with photography sessions, new dresses for our shop, and very few me moments.  Now they are filled with campus visits, filling out scholarship forms, and financial aid forms.  Everything my son wants to accomplish this year.  So I am sorry if my imagination has not had the time to roam, and bring you lots of new and gorgeous fabrics.  Soon this too will subside, and everything will get back to normal.  I promise.

I have been very busy in the shop.  It is hard to believe that without making one new dress this season, I have had a busy schedule since September.  Tomorrow is Halloween, and although we are closing the book on that chapter, Thanksgiving and Christmas are starting to ship.  Our first orders go out next week.  I am definitely planning on making a few new Christmas dresses soon.  Maybe I will just post some beautiful new fabrics in the next few days, and let you guys decide what patterns you want.  That way I have no choice but to get them done.

I am so happy I found a moment to say hello.  Leave me a comment if you are looking for something special.  I am always here and ready to chat.
