Messy studio means busy machine

Messy messy sewing studio but I feel like I got quite a bit done today.

Taking 2 bags to work tomorrow, I may be teaching a class on how to make one (or both!)

My Creative Peace - Inspire Your Soul: We are all on a Quest

My Creative Peace - Inspire Your Soul: We are all on a Quest

So beautiful!

Children, husband, & bickering, oh my!

Tried to work today - operative word being tried.

Children were demanding attention, husband hovered like a stalker, and everyone was bickering!
Was a bad, bad day for work here at home. :(

On the up-side, I did have some new designs & ideas today for bags & clothing.

Listing tomorrow!!

Satin, satin, satin

Bought 3 different satins yesterday - a navy, a pretty burgundy, & a double-sided satin that's navy blue with pretty polka-dots on one side & polka-dots on stripes on the other.

I have worked a lot of the day on a reversible skirt out of the polka-dot satin. It's finished & super cute! Would be awesome as a "going out to dinner" outfit.

The burgundy is going to be sort of like this top by Gucci.

Trying to get motivated again

Well, I have truly lacked energy or motivation lately is not good.

I quit my one part time job in the hopes to have more time to dedicate to designing & sewing for my Etsy shop & creating artwork for my other Etsy shop.
But so far I am having a hard time controlling my depression enough to work.
For anybody who knows me personally, my life has been a big heartbroken mess. I was betrayed by my very best friend in the world in a cruel & cold way.
Subsequently, I am trying to change my life - from top to bottom.

I need to dust myself off & get busy!! I won't be able to change anything if I don't stay motivated & disciplined.

This is a pretty satin gown I made from a pattern printed in 1944.
