Yup, ‘tis that time of year. It used to be the month of June but many years ago September/October became the chosen months. Overall, the weather is a tad more predictable…..in a good way…..and outdoor weddings have, also, become quite popular. So, my quilting ‘studio’ has become (for a few days) “wedding alterations central”!! As you can see in the above photo, I have not gotten around to taking down the sign I had for my sewing & alterations business of years ago. It was a time when I not only did formal-wear alterations but designed and created custom gowns for various occasions. (School prom-time was another busy time for me.) Over the years, home sewing has disappeared (gals entering the workplace, etc) so, around here, I am called upon frequently to take care of such needs. Which brings me to today…….this is what is surrounding me this beautiful Friday morning………. One bridal gown and 2 bridesmaids’ dresses (all going to different weddings) …..awaiting their turn under the machine. Hems, bustles, “nip & tuck” and various “tweakings” so that it will be the perfect vision for the day (‘cuz we all know how these special days require perfect execution…..eeoo! Bad choice of words!!! Sorry!) So, this is what is going on in MY life……how ‘bout yours??????
Another weekend is upon us………I pray it’s a good one for all of you. ‘Til next time…………….
