Stay focus!

Lately I have been pretty quiet…too busy focusing on finding new ways to hate my job! What can I say? I’m passionate no matter what! I realized that it was time for me to quit when my doctor told me that I had rosacea and that it was probably the result of high emotional stress. So I have until June 1st to find a new job. Great timing (uber sarcastic) when you consider that we are in the process of buying a new house! Anyway!

However, when I was not agonizing over my job, I was making patterns, cutting fabric and sewing samples for a very tiny summer dress collection...so tiny I only have one dress at the moment! It’s pretty pathetic when you think about it but it makes me happy! I have one pattern in x-small, small and medium (working on the large next week). Each dress is unique since I only buy enough fabric for one dress. In theory, they should be available on Etsy in two weeks. I can’t wait to show you the result!

You have a LOT of things on the go. I cannot WAIT to see your tiny summer dress collection, as that material looks lovely!

Can't think of a more productive way to distract yourself. Dress/fabrics look beautiful!

And though financially, it's not the best timing to be jobless, it's ultra practical when you consider the logistics of moving to a new home!

Ok, and tell me if this doesn't make you laugh - the blogger verification word to leave a comment right now for me is "undies", no joke. Ha!

Congrats on quitting your job! I know all too well what it's like to work a job that you hate — it has a way of consuming your life. It's brave what you've done, and although everything may seem a little up in the air right now, things always have a way of working out for the very best. Now, you have the time to concentrate on the big move AND your passion — sewing. Who knows? Maybe you've just opened yourself up to a whole new career opportunity. It's very exciting. Good luck and happy sewing!

So sorry about the job stress! Blech, but at least you are passionate about your hatred of it. ;)
You are going to put dresses in your shop? - there will be a stampede, be prepared! Your dresses are always so terrific, and your fabrics too!
